Ray77 and I have been collaborating (conniving?) another game for the SC playoffs for 2018. We're prototyping it this year.

Watch and see Ray kick my < bleep >. 

We'll explain scoring as we go, but here's our opening round picks.

Your first look at scoring given that ANA over CGY in 5

ANA 4 5 6 7 7 6 5 4 CGY

Ray picked ANA in 5; it was ANA in 4; he's off by one slot in that number line so Ray picked up 1 stroke. I picked ANA in 5 also, so I too have 1 stroke. 

As other series close we'll explain scoring further.

Why not just do the thing Commodore does during the Masters with + and - of players in the playoffs.

That's a "player" game like this one here: pick a roster, get their points. (Commy does +/- not points.) 

This is a based on team/series/games picks.

Well PIT dispatched CBJ in 5. Ray had PIT in 6; I had PIT in 7. 

PIT 4 5 6 7 7 6 5 4 CBJ

Ray missed by one slot so he takes a stroke plus his prior for 2 total. 

I missed by two slots so I take two strokes plus my prior makes 3 total for me.

Ray had CHI in 5; I had CHI in 6. 

It is NAS in ... 4. 

CHI 4 5 6 7 7 6 5 4 NAS

Ray missed by six slots and had the wrong team so points double: 12. Add is prior 2 for 14. 

I missed by five slot and had wrong team: 10 points. Add my prior 3 for 13. 

So through three "holes" in this "Masters" Ray has 14 strokes to my 13 strokes.

Ray had MIN in 6; I had STL in 6; it was STL in 5.

MIN 4 5 6 7 7 6 5 4 STL 

I missed by one slot (+1) so I'm at 14.
Ray missed by 4 but wrong team so +8, so he's at 22.

Looks good to me....errr.....let me change that.....looks correct to me.  It doesn't look good - me being down by 5 "strokes"!

I'm going to have to do some major homework and nail my 2nd round picks to catch up.

All it takes is a "hole" like MIN/STL for a seven-shot impact.

I made my picks before coming out here and seeing yours.  I see that we have all the same teams winning each series, just in different number of games.  I'll have to make up my 5 strokes little by little!

WEST
Nashville over St. Louis in 7
Anaheim over Edmonton in 6

EAST
NY Rangers over Ottawa in 6
Washington over Pittsburgh in 6

First hole of round 2 is done: NAS over STL in 6

I had NAS in 6, Ray had NAS in 7 

STL 4 5 6 7 7 6 5 4 NAS

I "aced" it so plus 0.

Well, that pulled me 2 strokes closer...

Possible scenarios for tonight (let me know if these numbers aren't correct):
Anaheim wins - Sic +2, Ray +1
Edmonton wins - Sic +6, Ray +4
Washington wins - Sic +0, Ray +1
Pittsburgh wins - Sic +2, Ray +4
