Our New York Islanders March Madness bracket continues as we approach the end of the first group of votes. In the third round, third seeds face off against six seeds.
With two rounds in the books, we’ve yet to have an upset in our New York Islanders March Madness fan voting. Both first and second seeds have safely made it through the round of 16 and into the elite eight. But in this round, the stumbling begins.
Just a refresher on what we’re actually doing here. Every day we ask New York Islanders fans to vote via Twitter in the 16 most important storylines for the franchise in 2017-18.
We broke all 16 storylines into two sides, with eight per side, and then we seeded each storyline based on how we felt they should matter. We then ask you, the fan, to either corroborate our ranking or tell us we were out to lunch.
So far the voting has gone exactly the way we thought it would go, but as we get further into the sweet 16 the closer the rankings get, and the likelier for a higher seed to fall to a lower one. As evidenced by Saturday’s vote, where a three seed falls to a six seed.
