Friday Update:

The big winners on Friday were aygwm2 (34 points) and gochiefs (32 points). gochiefs went an impressive 6-0-4 on Friday, to earn 32 points, while aygwm2 earned the 10 point bonus for correctly predicting 6 road winners (aren't you glad I rounded :p:D:D) to go along with a 4-2-4 prediction record. The other bonus (HE SOG) yielded points to only 3 predictors. Laker Dude and mcfarljd each earned 4 points for their predictions of 350 shots on goal (actual total was 356). I managed to be the blind squirrel this week, and earned 6 points for predicting 352 shots on goal. As for averages on Friday, we collectively correctly predicted 59.55% of the games, upping our overall correct pick percentage to 56.003%. The average points scored on Friday was 24.91 points.

For Saturday, Laker Dude sits just 4 points behind co-leaders 1988 and FiveHole12. The key games will be Bentley-Canisius (FH12 picked Canisius, LD and 1988 picked Bentley), Colgate-Harvard (FH12 and LD picked Colgate, 1988 picked Harvard), Omaha-Miami (FH12 picked Omaha, LD and 1988 picked Miami), and Vermont-Northeastern (FH12 picked Vermont, LD and 1988 picked Northeastern). That being said, bonus can still complicate things even further with 20 additional bonus points on the line. The B1G produced a defensive showing on Friday night, as only 4 goals were scored. At least 12 goals will need to be scored in the B1G tonight for anyone to earn points. As for the 1-goal games bonus, there were 14 games decided by 1 goal or less on Friday night. If 12 or fewer games are decided by 1 goal or less tonight, somebody will walk away with 15 bonus points. If there are 13-17, or more than 18, nobody will earn any points, and if there are 18, Laker Dude will earn the big bonus.

3) Do NOT pick a tie. If you do, you will lose 4 points.
4) All correct picks will earn 4 points (unless stated otherwise). If a game ends in a tie (regardless of shootout), you will receive 2 points, unless you picked a tie, in which case you will LOSE 4 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, January 22nd 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.
7) If you update your picks before the deadline, please post in this thread to let me know of the changes.

FS23... you should probably edit the post to replace 'Extra Attacker Goals' with 'Extra Strength Goals' or 'Man Advantage Goals', as an EA goal is defined as:

A player, usually a forward, who replaces the goaltender on the ice, so that the team plays with six skaters and an empty net. The tactic is usually used during a delayed penalty, or late in a game when a team is desperate for a goal and willing to risk an empty net in return for the advantage created by an extra attacker.

That would help tp eliminate any further confusion.

I was planning on doing that, but was editing from my phone with little time. I edited the post again to hopefully clear up any additional confusion (I guess some people may not know what PP or EAG mean) there may have been.

I understand what an extra attacker goal is BTW, but thanks for the definition. ;)
