    Also, USCHO apparently messed up, and the Harvard exhibition was actually the women's exhibition. The women scored 5 goals, along with Yale's 9, and Dartmouth's 7 for a total of 21 goals. Nobody correctly predicted that. The Niagara-Robert Morris game featured 50 penalty minutes. Nobody correctly predicted that. Consequently, no bonus points were awarded this week.
    But you implied Harvard men in your post. Since the Harvard men didn't score, I believe the total goals for the three teams is 16, and bonus points should be awarded to those who correctly guessed 16 (which does not include me, for all of you conspiracy theorists). Especially since you didn't propose counting the goals scored by the Yale and Dartmouth women. USCHO made a mistake, you didn't catch it, but neither did we. Or maybe three posters did catch it, but didn't let on.

      What was the highest PM guess? 30? That wasn't even close to RoMo's tally for the night of 36. Are they trying for a new DI record?

                The intent was to capture the total goals from 3 games. I'm not going to credit somebody's incorrect guess as correct. I did think momentarily to use the average goals multiplied by 3 (would have resulted in a total of 24). Under this method, nobody would have properly guessed. Ultimately, I decided to use the women's score because that was the intended game to have counted. Hopefully, we won't have any more of these issues in the coming weeks, and I'll try and stay away from exhibitions that I'm not entirely sure will occur. What I could have done (and it wouldn't have made a difference) is simply not count the bonus question do to the mistake. Perhaps that is what I'll do in the future.

                That being said, three people picked 16 goals. If they knew of the mistake and didn't correct it, then that is their mistake. Let this be a lesson for future mistakes that I and/or USCHO make.

                  30 was the highest. I enjoyed doing the PM bonus because it is entirely random. Look for more of those as the season progresses.

                  Also, if anyone has any ideas that they would like to see for a bonus question, throw it out there. I'll try and incorporate those as the season goes.

                      I think a bonus question should be how may places UncleRay will fall this week?
