The 2019 Stanley Cup Playoffs are finally here!

After a long season of exciting matches, the brackets are finally set for the 2019 Stanley Cup playoffs! This contest will run for each round of the tournament resulting with a few lucky Scorum contestants stuffing a bunch of SCR into their wallets.

Before you start reaching out for some free SCR, let's just start with how the contest will work...

One contest post per tourney round:

  • pick the winning team for each series
  • pick the resulting W-L for each series
  • pick the designated tiebreaker for round
  • 1 point allotted for each correct pick
  • 1 point allotted per correct series W-L
  • series tiebreaker settles any ties
  • lowest 2 totals (per 15 entries) are eliminated
  • more on how to play below...

You might be wondering what the (per 15 entries) thing means...I'll explain. For every 15 contestants during the first round, the pot will grow by 100 SCR...up to 300 SCR (unless one of you fine people would like to donate to the pot, of course).

The Stanley Cup Playoffs take a bit of time to complete so each contest post will be for each round of the tournament. Eight teams from each conference will be competing during Round 1 so make your picks count!
