HHT "Experts" vs SportsFed Bloggers: Final Results

As you already know (if you read this), the hockey bloggers in the Sports Federation were involved in a little prognosticate-off with the "Experts" from Hardcore Hockey Talk as part of The Score's Playoff Hockey Challenge with the goal to see who has the larger brains. 

Here's how the final results shake down:

  • Congrats to the Canucks Hockey Blog for taking the prize with an impressive performance;

  • Al Strachan led the way for the "Experts" with a respectable copper medal finish; and

  • Down Goes Brown was the only one to correctly pick the Penguins in 7 and that vaulted him passed Mark Osborne... DGB can now die a happy man. 

Here's the final results:
