I just thought I would give this a courtesy bump to anyone else still thinking about making their picks for this weekend. :)

I think North Dakota's just a bit too young to have success at Miami this early in the season. If the series were in February or March, I would probably pick a split, but I think Miami is too deep and too experienced to pick up anything less than 4-5 points. I see one of the games being very close, and perhaps even a tie. The other, I see Miami walking away with a 2-3 goal win.

Of course, I hope I'm wrong. :)

I'd love a tie and a win. Should be a lot of fun. Looking forward to the games.

Pretty rough night for predictions last night. Of the 27 posters who predicted, only 2 were above .500 (all bear and UML), and the majority (15/27) were below .500. That should make for an interesting Saturday night! :)

Fortunately, this year there will be plenty of chances to make ground up if you miss a week.

Or he'll go 5-0 :eek:

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.

Week 3 Standings (Top 5):
1. all bear - 17 points (8-1-1)

Special shout out to all bear and arickeo. all bear has the top prediction record currently with a 17-2-1 record, while arickeo is tied for 2nd with a 15-4-1 record. Keep that up, and they'll be atop the league in no time.

Here are the games for Week 4:

Friday:
Michigan Tech @ Northern Michigan -
Dartmouth vs. Princeton -
Miami @ Providence -
Boston College @ Minnesota -
Cornell @ Nebraska Omaha -

Saturday:
Sacred Heart @ American International -
Boston University @ Michigan State -
Notre Dame @ Minnesota Duluth -
Colorado College @ Clarkson -
New Hampshire @ Rensselaer -

BONUS (5 points if correct, otherwise 0 points)
Total Goals Scored in the US Under-18 @ North Dakota exhibition -
Total number of victories by road teams (read: away, not neutral) on Friday through Sunday -

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! (The 4pm Brown-Yale matchup is not an "away" game by either team)
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) Anyone can play. You do not have to continue to predict after this week. You didn't have to predict last week.

Good Luck!

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. :p:D:D

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?:D
