The consolation game went to the shootout option a couple years ago, so there will be no tie.
    JJM, what about the semi-finals?

    Thanks for the help, GLI will follow standard "post-OT" scoring (2 pts for a SO win, 1 pt for a SO loss).

    Need to check the manual to confirm, but I believe they will use the shootout in the semis as well.

    The chart below shows how many times a team has been picked to win through the first half of the season.

    What impact would those points have? It's a tournament. Either you advance/win or you don't. If there's still a tie after one OT then NCAA recognizes it as a tie no matter what happens.

    Let me put it to you this way...at this time of year I pray every game has a winner before 65 min are up.

    Oh, right. Still it's not about points it's about it going to a shootout if necessary. Win with 3 points, win with 2 points, same result.

    Just got through reading the manual for the GLI. The consolation game has been changed due to time constraints, and can now end in a tie. All three other games will end in a shootout if necessary.

    Thanks for the update JJM. If anyone wants to play for the tie go ahead and submit a second entry. I always take the latest submission as your final answer.

    Why can't I ever find a link to make picks? You all must be afraid of my prognostication skills!

    Week 13 is up even though it's still holiday tournament time. League games start up on Thursday of this week so I want to give everyone as much time as possible to submit picks. Week 12 results will be posted at the conclusion of the GLI.

    The week 12 holiday tournament co-winners were Critical Thinker and Icd80 who posted scores of 27 points each. At the top of the standings it is rapidly becoming a two-person race for the McNaughton Cup between Bronco Hockey Fan and SweeneyHawksHockey and a three-person race for the Mason Cup between those two and GIWAN. I also want to point out how mikeeddy19 has steadily worked into a playoff position after spotting the field nearly 30 games.

    Reminder that the first Bemidji at BG tee time is 7:37 this Thursday so get those picks in.

    Bump. With the race on to get picks submitted before Thursday's resumption of the WCHA season, this seems as good a time as any to share a heat map showing what days our players prefer to submit their picks. The darker the green, the more times picks were submitted on that day.

    The winner of week 13 was TalonsUpPuckDown with a score of 27. With 8 weeks left in the season there are still 270 points up for grabs including 60 bonus points.

    Ten games on the schedule for week 14.

    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.

    Re: WCHA Pick 'Em 2018-2019

    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!
