It's weird to me that the first game of Round 2 will be over and done before the last game of Round 1.

People flipping a nut because of the name of the Red Wings' new arena.
Honestly, Mike Illitch OWNS Little Caeser's. Who DIDN'T see it coming?
That's like being surprised that they called it Ford Field.

But Little Caesar's is still a stupid name for a stadium, and also a bowl game.

It's a sponsor name just like every other arena.

^Phrasing is a thing, though. To use some STL examples: "Trans World Dome" sounded better than "TWA Dome". "Enterprise Stadium" would've been a better name for the same sponsorship deal that would've led to "National Car Rental Stadium". "Busch Stadium" sounds better than "Anheuser-Busch Brewery Stadium" or "Budweiser Stadium" or "InBev Stadium".

And remember, "I'm-a Luigi, number one!"

In defense of Busch though, that was also the name of a person, who happened to also be the owner of the Cardinals.

The New York Islanders have been eliminated 4-1.
[USER=29448]@Classic Panfan[/USER] gets 2 points for team
[USER=34539]@I am nobody[/USER] gets a point for # of games

The Washington Capitals have been eliminated 4-2.
[USER=35833]@Glux[/USER] , [USER=15474]@Gumchum[/USER] , and [USER=29448]@Classic Panfan[/USER] get a point for games

I went back an re-did some math. I apparently short-changed Gumchum and I a point each. I found it and fixed it and edited all previous mistakes.
(Remember teams are worth 2 points this round)
I am nobody: 15 points
Glux: 10 points
Pan Fan: 9 points
Gumchum: 8 points

The Nashville Predators have been eliminate 4-3.
[USER=29448]@Classic Panfan[/USER] gets 4 points for team and #of games
[USER=34539]@I am nobody[/USER] gets 2 points for team

The Dallas Stars have been eliminated 4-3.
[USER=35833]@Glux[/USER] gets 4 points for team and # of games
[USER=15474]@Gumchum[/USER] gets a point for # of games

I am nobody: 17 points
Glux: 14 points
Pan Fan: 13 points
Gumchum: 9 points

It's down to the last two rounds!
Maximum possible points:
Pan Fan: 30 (Needs STL/SJS to end in 5 games for 1 point, TB to beat PIT in 6 for 6 points, and TB to win Cup in 7 games for 10 points.)
Glux: 22 (Needs STL to beat SJS in 6 games for 6 points, PIT/TB to end in 7 for 1 point, and Cup decided in 6 games for 1 point.)
I am nobody: 20 (Needs STL/SJS to end in 4 games for 1 point, PIT/TB to end in 4 for 1 point, and Cup decided in 7 games for 1 point.)
Gumchum: 12 (Needs STL/SJS to end in 7 games for 1 point, PIT/TB to end in 7 for 1 point, and Cup decided in 6 games for 1 point.)
These are just the best-case scenarios for each player.

And once again I implode in the second round. Kind of amazing how that happens in every sport.

You can still win, though!
If SJS wins in 4, 5, or 7, you stay above me. If SJS wins in 6 we could possibly tie.
If TB loses you stay above Pan Fan.
If both, you win!
