Pick a player and score points based on his points scored in the game. Accrue more points than anyone else over the course of 82 games and the playoffs and you get the tickets. Players are weighted so check the table and chose wisely. Player groups will be updated every ten games. The current list will be the scoring structure for games 20-29. So make your pick and let's have some fun with this.
*- Actual faceoff times are almost always eight minutes after scheduled game times. So a 7:30 game will usually have a 7:38 faceoff. If there is a dispute, we will go to the official NHL score sheet which lists game start times.
**- A “Conditional pick” goes something like this. “I’ll take Eaton if he is dressed, if he is scratched I’ll take Crosby.” No more of that. Part of playing the game is knowing who is playing the game. In the above instance, the recorded pick would be Eaton. Keep in mind you can always edit picks if you see that your guy is not playing that game as long as you do so before the faceoff. The fine print. In the event of a tie after the final game of the season, the first tiebreaker will be which person had the highest single game point total. If it is still tied after that, the second tie breaker will be which person had the fewest zero point games. There has been some skepticism as to the ticket giveaway. Bear in mind I never said they will be two on the glass for a Saturday night game vs. Detroit. They will most likely be whichever game is deemed the least attractive match-up of the season by the guy donating the tickets. So look for a Tuesday nighter vs. Nashville or a Thursday game vs. the Panthers.
