    ECAC Pick 'em - "Preseason" Week 1

    I figured that I'd start this thread since half of the ECAC teams begin their regular season this weekend (with 2 of those teams playing Thursday night). Note the word "preseason" in the title -- the "regular" season won't begin until the last weekend in October when Harvard plays Dartmouth.

    The rules:

    Pick the team that you think will win for each game. It is best if you copy and paste the list of games, then either boldface the winner or write the winner next to each game. You get 1 point for each correctly picked win and 2 points for each correctly picked tie. Please also predict the total ECAC goals scored by all teams for the given set of games. This will serve as a tiebreaker. (Note: only goals scored by ECAC teams will count. Keep this in mind when you predict the number of goals scored.)

    Make sure you get your picks in by Thursday night before the start of the Quinnipiac and RPI games.

    The games:

    Thursday, October 8:
    Quinnipiac at Ohio State
    RPI at UMass

    Friday, October 9:
    St. Lawrence vs. UMass-Lowell
    Quinnipiac at Ohio State
    Clarkson at Michigan State
    Maine at Union
    Colgate at Niagara

    Saturday, October 10:
    New Hampshire at RPI
    Clarkson at Michigan State
    Maine at Union
    Colgate at RIT

    Total ECAC goals:

    (Note: I am aware that SLU is playing on Saturday, but their opponent is dependent on the outcome of their game on Friday, so it will not be included on this list. Good luck.)

    Rainman,

    Is there a policy on games in tournaments that end in ties and will be resolved by shootouts?

    I don't really know. Usually this thread is for league games. But if the SLU/UMass Lowell game ends in a tie and goes into a shootout, I will correctly award a point to the posters that picked the team that wins the shootout. And if someone were to pick that game as a tie, I will award the poster two points, regardless of who wins the shootout.

    Also, the shootout will have no effect on the total goals scored in that game.

    W-force, please estimate the total ECAC goals scored in all the games. This will be used as a tiebreaker.
