Last Thursday, Jay and I came out on top in the TNL over/under pick 'em comp. Not exactly your gracious hosts. We apologize. But trust me, a contest this cockamamie (yeah, that's right) could never be rigged. As for this Thursday? There is only one thing I can tell you with certainty: I'll be at the Canucks/Blues game, row 23 behind Halak/Elliot for two periods. Yesssss.
So, I won't be updating the spreadsheet until late Thursday evening, or possibly the next day (unless someone wants to update it live for me).
Also means I won't be around much to play host, but I will have the SBN app to read and post comments (live! from Rogers! Arena!) and I expect I might also post some pictures and video from the game on our new Facebook page. Please like it! (but only if you like it).
But where I am Thursday doesn't really matter, because as it turns out, our readers are usually funnier and more informed than me, and over the last couple of TNLs, the comments section has really become the blog, in my opinion. Fun way to watch hockey.
After the jump, Thursday's slate and your chance to unseat the champs.
1. Submit your pick for the winning team for each game.
2. Based on an over/under of 5.5 goals, submit your pick for over or under for each game.
3. Submit your pick for the game winning goal scorer in each game. Shootout winners count as a GWG.
For every winning team you pick correctly, you get 1 point. For every over/under you get right, you get 1 point. For every GWG scorer picked correctly, you get 1 point. So a max of three points per game if you hit the rarefied trifecta of winner, over/under and GWG scorer.
Please post your picks in the comments for this post, and to keep things simple, just copy and paste the above slate and add your choice of winning team ((H = home win, V = visitor win), over or under based on 5.5 goals ((O = over, U = under), and the last name of your pick for GWG scorer:
NJD@BOS HU Chara
MIN@MON VO Heatley
Win it all and you'll take your place in history with a feature in Monday's Fantasy Stars of the Week post, and by Tuesday you'll be partying at Michael Lohan's house.
See you Thursday...
