Mike (Dec 20 '21): Three-way tie for top overall spot, all three went 5-for-5 in the final week. Congrats Bobby Orr, scooby10672, and Winterpegger! Thanks everyone for playing, and Happy Holidays!
Mike (Dec 20 '21): Well that was quite the way to close out the last week in this pool. Five games played, six postponed to who knows when. Probably a good thing this was the last week. There never were any games scheduled on Christmas Day (this Sat). We'll see about Jan. 1.
pacepanther (Dec 18 '21): No Leafs game tonight.
Mike (Dec 13 '21): I had a good week for once! Not as good as gates302, who won the week.
Mike (Dec 7 '21): I really need to be put out of my misery in this pool I'm doing so poorly. franers wins the week with 9 plus hit the tie-breaker exactly right.
Mike (Nov 29 '21): Wakes99 wins the week with 7 and nails the tie-breaker exactly at 6 goals. Well done!
Mike (Nov 29 '21): Not sure anyone noticed, but the Florida game wasn't marked right/wrong when it was supposed to be (auto-magically by the website). Looks like it made zero difference since no one took the Kraken!
Mike (Nov 22 '21): 3-way tie for top spot this week, between cneilson, fitzhatrick, and worm5511. Sadly, my score was an improvement for me
Mike (Nov 16 '21): Member Dreaded wins the week with 12 and a HUGE tie-breaker score. Picked 8.5, it was 11 goals scored. Yikes, that's a beer league score.
Mike (Nov 7 '21): Another wild night in the NHL trying to pick winners. Bayman231 with 10!
pacepanther (Nov 6 '21): Four zip Panthers. Oops.
pacepanther (Nov 6 '21): Looks like Barkov is out. Going with Hurricanes.
Mike (Nov 2 '21): Lilpig the weekly winner alone with 9 correct, then five tied at 8. Boy, I suck at this.
Mike (Oct 25 '21): Wakes99 tops the second week on the tie-breaker. Poor week for me. Wow, Maple Leafs, get it together!
Mike (Oct 18 '21): Nice week, cleo12!
Mike (Oct 16 '21): We start today! Don't forget about the pesky early Saturday games
