Buffalo Sabres fans, are you ready for rivalry night?
I know, I know: rivalry might be the best word to describe this Bruins-Sabres matchup. I’m more inclined to call it “Extreme Mismatch night,” but that doesn’t exactly pump up the ratings, now does it? Besides, the Sabres usually find a way to play Boston tough, even if the reason for that is because Boston knows the Sabres are terrible.
Speaking of terrible, no one can claim they had a terrible night last night when it came to our picks. Our winner was Kevin, who wound up with 39 points on the evening (plus a 25-point boost, as promised). Meanwhile, our lowest score of the evening was 20, still a darn good outing. Many of us were log-jammed at 27 points, which means that either I made the picks fairly easy last night, or we were all on top of our game. Kudos goes out to newbie Alex, who scored 20 points in his very first foray into our friendly game – nice work! Hope you keep coming back!

Tonight I am doing a Wild Card edition of the Fan Picks! Here is how it works: everyone who plays must make 5 predictions of their own. I’ll give you 5 points for each pick you get correct, and the winner who be the reader who gets the most picks right. Five picks is your minimum – you can go beyond five if you want, because the more picks you nail, the higher you will score!
Your picks must be Good, Fair picks! Picking which players score, how many total shots there will be, the winning teams, the combined final score, the number of points a single player will get – etc. These are legitimate picks. Predicting that there will be at least one penalty called in the game or that there will be hits – general, obvious stuff like that will earn you a stern reprimand from me! When in doubt, just recycle some of the categories I have used in these threads in the past!
I’ll provide an example, and good luck!
