      Note: I just noticed that for last week Beaver Hockey Fan in NH, giwan, and Mavsfan19 posted entries prior to the Friday games. These scores will be included in the results I post on Sunday. Sorry I didn't catch that sooner. Good news is it did not affect the weekly winner.

        MTUHuskyGold won week 14 with a score of 26 missing only Alaska's upset of Bemidji Saturday night. The top of the standings shuffled again as SweeneyHawksHockey retakes the lead with a big 25 point week.

        Two 5-point bonus questions for week 15. It's a little different so feel free to post your questions.

        There are seven weeks left in the regular season. Playoff info will be coming next week.

          El bumpo. Missing quite a few regulars.

          *Edit: Also need to go old school for a bit with the standings as USCHO changed their security settings which broke all my web links. Will have that fixed at some point, thanks for the patience.

            Big update this week, I apologize for the length. First off, you will find the playoff rules below the weekly standings.

            The winner of week 15 was cajunuahfan who posted a score of 25 points including 7 bonus points. BroncoHockeyFan rode the bonus wave back into a first place tie with SweeneyHawksHockey who still clings to a 2 game lead in the quest for the Mason Cup. The average GWG time in the UAA/UAH series was 32 min (rounded down) while the total PP, SH, EN, EA goals was 18. potternum claimed 9 bonus points which led the bonus picking.

            Code:

            Full slate of games for week 16 so no bonus. I added two more columns to the weekly standings: Playoff points behind (points needed to make the field of 32) and Playoff % (percent likelihood of making the playoffs based on 100 simulations).

            The fight for the Jeff Sauer championship trophy starts up in less than two months.

            Playoff Seeding
            Due to this year’s expansive field, the top 32 players will make the playoffs. Matches are head-to-head, single elimination with snake seeding for bracket pairings (1 vs. 32, 2 vs. 31, etc.). Seeding and tie breakers are determined in the following manner based on regular season results:
            1) Total Points (including bonus)
            2) Points (excluding bonus)
            3) Total Points earned during the final 2 (or 3, or 4, or…) weeks of the WCHA regular season including bonuses until the tie is broken. Basically the “hotter” player down the stretch is favored.

            Playoff Rounds
            o First round will be based on the Friday, March 8 WCHA Quarterfinal playoff games with bonuses (4 games total, field reduced from 32 to 16).
            o Second round will be based on the Saturday, March 9 WCHA Quarterfinal playoff games with bonuses (4 games total, field reduced from 16 to 8)
            o Quarterfinals will be based on the Friday, March 15 WCHA Semifinal playoff games with bonuses (2 games total, field reduced from 8 to 4).
            o Semifinals will be based on the Saturday, March 16 WCHA Semifinal playoff games with bonuses (2 games total, field reduced from 4 to 2).
            o The championship matchup will be based on the WCHA Championship game on March 23 plus bonuses.

            Scoring
            o Same as the regular season other than games won’t end in a tie so 3 pts for a win, 0 pts for a loss.
            o 2-3 bonus questions for each round worth 1-5 points.
            o Ties go to the higher seed.

            Good luck!

              gochiefs, MavHockey14, and mikeeddy19 were the week 16 tri-winners posting 22 points each. SweeneyHawksHockey had an unusually challenged week and finds that Bronco Hockey Fan has retaken the lead in the standings and GIWAN now leads in the race for the Mason Cup by .001 percentage points. Five weeks remain in the season.

              Reminder that the top 32 make the playoffs. To boost everyone's chances, the bonus is here to stay through the rest of the regular season.

                Re: WCHA Pick 'Em 2018-2019

                Mavsfan19 had a killer week capturing 26 out of a possible 28 points including being the only player to correctly predict the outcome of all 6 games. This score moved Mavsfan19 from being a playoff outsider last week (rank 36/12 points out) to a 31 seed. Bronco Hockey Fan holds on to first place, however, there is now a 3-way tie for the Mason Cup between giwan, SweeneyHawksHockey, and TalonsUpPuckDown.

                As for the bonus, there were 16 visitor goals, 20 home goals, and 2 one-goal games. <3_Blizzard and gochiefs led the way with 9 bonus points each. Everyone picked up at least 1 bonus point this week except for one player.

                    I saw that when I was updating this week's numbers. Bug in my tracking spreadsheet, I'm adding 8 points to your total score for this week.

                      First, I forgot to post Hatch_man's 8 bonus points for last week; this week's standings reflect the update.

                      Bronco Hockey Fan not only tightens that grip on the McNaughton Cup by winning week 18 with a score of 26 points (the lead is now up to 19 points) but also joins giwan, SweeneyHawksHockey , and TalonsUpPuckDown in what is now a 4-way tie for the Mason Cup. Shout out to Deejpuck and SectionP who also had big 25 point weeks.

                      LakerDude correctly picked 95 shots-on-goal in this weekend's Governor's Cup.

                      There are three weeks left in the regular season with bonus opportunities each week.

                              BG is currently the best defensive team in the country. When they get rolling offensively, they are hard to beat. The power play has been a struggle of late. Last night they had two, including two of the four first period goals.

                                I laughed at your comment as it reminds me of a similar quote from Derek Smalls which also describes this team:
                                David and Nigel are like poets, you know, like Shelley or Byron, or people like that. The two totally distinct types of visionaries, it’s like fire and ice, and I feel my role in the band is to be kind of the middle of that, kind of like lukewarm water.
                                There is no lukewarm water in BG's team this year...
