Out of curiosity (and boredom, in the middle stages of this STA-Apollo game), I went through and tallied up our picks.

Class A Quarters:
Breck 52, Marshall 0
Hermantown 48, Duluth Marshall 4 (meaning four of you are down at least one point right now)
STA 52, Apollo 0
EGF 40, Rochester Lourdes 12

Winners of A Semis
STA 47
Breck 28
Hermantown 23
EGF 5
Duluth Marshall 1

A 3rd Place
Hermantown 19
EGF 18
Breck 9
STA 3
Lourdes 1
D. Marshall 1
Left blank 1

A Champion
STA 39
Hermantown 6
Breck 4
EGF 3

AA Quarters
Duluth East 45, Moorhead 7
Edina 51, Lakeville North 1
Hill 44, Eastview 8
Wayzata 46, Centennial 6

AA Semis
Wayzata 29
Edina 24
Duluth East 24
Hill 18
Moorhead 4
Eastview 3
Centennial 2

AA 3rd Place

Interesting to see the amount of parity in the AA picks.

How about an update by leader now that the QF's are done?

Sure, here's an update: for the first time since 2008, all eight top seeds won their first-round games. A lot of people predicted that, so after two days, 24 out of 52 people still have perfect brackets. (What a difference a year makes; last year, there were zero perfect brackets at this point.) The big points are today and tomorrow, though, and there's a lot of disagreement on three of the four semis today, so the herd should be thinned pretty well by the end of the day. And since the first round games are worth less, those of you who have dropped a point or two may still be in it.

Through two Class A semis (yes, sorry, EGF, I'm calling this one now), we are down to nine perfect scores. They are:

dueling21, thestickler07, b rad, The51, MNHockeyFan, krs703, hipcheck62, BodyShots, and Majinhockey

Many, many others are still in it, though.

Update through the Class A 3rd place game:

We have one perfect bracket left. MNHockeyFan, last year's champion, has all 19 points.

BodyShots is in second with 17 points, though he's lost his AA champion, which could be a problem.

hipcheck72 is one of two people tied for 3rd with 16 points, and has a very real shot at the top. krs703 is in third with 16 points, but with the same three picks in the three remaining games as MNHockeyFan, cannot win.

We have four people tied for fifth with 15 points: dueling21, thestickler07, bardown27, and bender0905. Bardown is in the best shape of those, with all three picks in the last three games still standing.

Ogie (14 points) has the best score of anyone who picked Hermantown in the Class A title game, but with both picks in the last two games out of the running, I don't think he can steal the title, even with a Hawks win.

Good luck to everyone in the last few games...

With one game to go, BodyShots is the leader in the clubhouse with 25 points, but he can't win. It's down to two people with 24 points: MNHockeyFan and hipcheck62. If Hill wins, the title is MNHockeyFan's for a second year in a row; if it's Edina, hipcheck takes home the crown.

I suppose I should make an official announcement here: congrats to 2013 champion hipcheck62, who correctly picked every game but the Class A 3rd place contest, earning 29 of 32 points.

2nd place goes to green4 with 27 points.

Cake comes in 3rd with 26.

25 points: 4thlineproblems, bardown27, BodyShots

24 points: Wildcats Hockey, rinkrat 24/7, MNHockey75, MNHockeyFan

Toilet Bowl: Bleed Maroon and Gold, with 7 points.

Thanks for playing!

What's my prize? 8)

To show how much luck is involved, I am from Wisconsin and did not see a single minute of MN high school hockey before the tournament. I rely on your fabulous posts for my info!!

You were one of four to not make it out of single digits, but I'm afraid two people beat you out for the bottom spot. :P
