Thursday Night Live - Get Your Picks In!

New, 35 comments

Over the last couple of weeks we've been having some fun with a live blog / low no-stakes over/under/pick 'em competition here on FHS. You can check out the last one here

This Thursday, we'll do it all again. Nine games on tap, including some really compelling match-ups. The Sharks visit old pal Ron Wilson in Toronto. The Canucks visit the Red Wings in a battle of the best. And the late game has the Flyers visiting the Oilers in their only match of the year. The Future will be on hand: Eberle. Hall. Giroux. Schenn. JVR. Simmonds. Excellent.

I'll be live blogging throughout Thursday's games with fantasy highlights and random commentary from around the hockey world. In the past couple of live blogs, the best content has been coming from the comments section, so thanks to those who have joined in there, and more are always welcome.

Last week we had twenty friends and readers submit their winner/over/under/GWG picks for Thursday's games and Tzuu took home the big prize. After the jump, the full slate and details on how to begin your quest for Thursday glory.

Thursday's slate:


Here's the criteria:

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.

The scoring system is easy: 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, like this:

ANA@CAR VO Selanne
MIN@FLA HU Versteeg
etc. etc.

Finish on top and you'll be featured in Monday's Fantasy Stars of the Week feature! As always, glory, riches and unbridled fame will follow, and you'll finally be able to quit your job and say you made something of your life. See you Thursday!
