          Sorry, mc, remove the first letter and you get a different sound. Here's a hint, folks: think of what is inside teddy bear's head.

              *BCeagle was penalized 2 points for picking a tie. BCeagle went 6-4-0, normally good for 12 points if not for the tie deduction.

              It was a fairly good week this week for many of our predictors. The average point total was 14.25 points, so a pretty good job all around this week.

              Overall Standings: Top 10
              1. 1988 - 99 Points (34-14-2)
              2. Aerman - 86 Points (31-17-2)
              3. Shirtless Bob - 83 Points (27-21-2)
              4. Uncle Ray - 77 Points (25-23-2)
              5. Laker Dude - 76 Points (30-18-2)
              6. SiouxfaninSeattle - 74 Points (29-19-2)
              t7. FiveHole12 - 72 Points (31-17-2)
              t7. drshoen - 72 Points (28-20-2)
              t7. SweeneyHawksHockey - 72 Points (28-20-2)
              t7. darker98 - 72 Points (24-23-2)

              1988 with a tremendous week 6 vaulted up to the top spot, along with some good separation. PcFriars13, who didn't pick this week, plummeted from 2nd to a tie for 11th.

                Here are the games for Week 7:

                Friday:
                American International @ Holy Cross -
                Wisconsin @ Miami -
                Michigan @ Nebraska Omaha -
                Rensselaer @ Union -
                New Hampshire @ Northeastern -

                Saturday:
                Lake Superior State @ Michigan Tech -
                Minnesota Duluth @ North Dakota -
                Harvard @ Princeton -
                Providence @ Vermont -

                Vegas Style Saturday Showdown: (** See Rules Below)
                Robert Morris (+2) @ Air Force -

                BONUS (10 points if correct, for each number off take away 1 point until 0 (cannot go into the negative)):
                Number of Goalie Saves in WCHA Games on Friday Night (6 teams in 3 games) -
                Number of Shots on Goal by B1G Teams on Saturday Night (4 teams in 4 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 6:35pm Eastern!
                2) No late picks will be allowed. No exceptions. This means that if you post your picks on Friday at 6:40pm 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 Wednesday at 8:00pm (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.

                **Vegas Style Rules:
                Pick one of the following three options:
                (A) Robert Morris @ Air Force - Robert Morris (If Robert Morris wins, draws, or loses by 1 goal, you earn 2 points)
                (B) Robert Morris @ Air Force - Air Force (If Air Force wins by 3 goals or more, you earn 2 points)
                (C) Robert Morris @ Air Force - Robert Morris Straight Up (If Robert Morris wins, you earn 6 points)
                In the event that Air Force wins by 2 goals, everyone who chose Option A or B will earn 1 point. Everyone who chose option C will earn 0 points. Everyone who created their own option will lose 2 points.

                Good Luck!
