    Well, nobody got the exact number on either of the bonus questions. Of course, had UNO and DU just played regulation then we would have had one exact winner for their SOG, but the OT shots pushed everyone out of getting points there. A handful of people earned points for the ECAC Total Goals Friday contest with Terrance getting the closest with 38 and earning 4 points.

    Thus far, it has been a much better week for our predictions. The average point total right now is just under 12, so that should push beyond 12, perhaps as high as 13. The highest of any week thus far was week 2, where the average poster added 15.56 points to their total.

    Overall, Aerman has clinched the top spot through Week 5. PcFriars is just 1 point behind, but both posters predicted AIC today. Aerman likely captured the Week 5 Standings top spot as well, unless AIC wins straight up, then Terrance and Irish08 will share that spot with 20 points.

    Anyway, good luck to everyone in the AIC-MSU match today, and I'll try and have the full Week 5 recap and Week 6's games up by either tonight or tomorrow before noon.

      I would consider gloating, but just last week I tied for dead last. There is far more luck involved in this amusement than most of us would care to admit.

          Your post needed fixing. People generally just use previous poster's posts for their predictions as opposed to the original. Consequently, I needed to fix your post and make it quite obvious at that.

          As for managing this thread, I'm giving strong consideration to quitting. For the time being, I'll continue, but people () need to lighten up when it comes to pick'em. This is supposed to be fun. If you see something off with the rules, say so as soon as you notice it.

              St. Lawrence @ Harvard -
              Boston College @ Boston University -
              Miami @ St. Cloud State -
              Bemidji State @ Ferris State -

              Saturday:
              Minnesota @ Notre Dame -
              North Dakota @ Nebraska Omaha -
              Cornell @ Union -
              Vermont @ Maine -
              Michigan State @ Michigan Tech -

              BONUS (10 points if correct, for each number off take away 1 point until 0 (cannot go into the negative)):
              Total number of penalty minutes by Big Ten teams on Friday (4 games) -
              Total number of shots on goal in Atlantic Hockey games on Saturday (2 games) -

              WEEKLY RULES:
              1) All picks must be in by the drop of the puck of the FIRST game in the bunch. This week, that is FRIDAY at 7:00pm Eastern!
              2) No late picks will be allowed. No exceptions. This means that if you post your picks on Friday at 7:10pm Eastern, you will not receive credit for your picks.
              3) Do NOT pick a tie. If you do, you will lose 2 points.
              4) All correct picks will earn 2 points (unless stated otherwise). If a game ends in a tie (regardless of shootout), you will receive 1 point, unless you picked a tie, in which case you will LOSE 2 points. DO NOT PICK A TIE.
              5) If you see a mistake within these rules based on the games selected, please note it as soon as possible. If not pointed out by Tuesday at 8:00am (Eastern), the mistake will stay, and I will interpret the mistake as soon as possible.
              6) Anyone can play. You do not have to continue to predict after this week. You didn't have to predict last week.

              Good Luck!

              Note: I will be on the road this week from Wednesday-Sunday. Any rule inquiries that come up during that time period may not be addressed by the drop of the first puck on Friday. As a result, if an issue arises during this time period, do your best to interpret the rules, and post in this thread what your interpretation is, why you interpret it that way, and how that interpretation affects your predictions. All such posts must be done prior to the drop of the first puck.
