NHL.com is having a bracket and we created a pool for Pensburgh readers, so jump in and join us.
Here’s the link and find “search leagues” to the right. The name to search for is “Pensburgh 2020 summer playoff”. The password is:
(can’t forget that, right?)
Sign up is free and when the first round decided you can make your picks and track them throughout the summer as hockey returns and we watch the Penguins quest for a fourth Stanley Cup in the Sidney Crosby / Evgeni Malkin era.
As mentioned, picks can’t be made until round one is known, and on Saturday the qualification round is going to begin, so we have some time. You don’t make any choices now, it’s just the time to sign up and enter the league and we’ll wait to see which eight teams make it into the first round and go from there.
Maybe a prize for the winner? We’ll have to see how it goes and what might be lying around to giveaway. Ideally there would be a nice new shirt or hat to remember this unique summer event, but that’s still to be decided..
