Kingstradamas Results: Game 15

Congratulations: 8 Exactas were on the cold stick of Anze Kopitar when he fired from the blueline toward the empty net. He ruined them all! LOL. Congrats to the sole beneficiary of the empty netter, trytodethroneus. He gets the very first Superfecta! That’s a +4 in both points and plus/minus. Meg moves back into a playoff spot at the expense of KingsFanFTW, who dropped do to food poisoning… bad duck!

On the sober side: Does San Jose’s endless ‘game in hand’ annoy anyone else? I’m convinced they’re going to end the season with 81 games played and get the tie break advantage. We’re only 1 point behind the reigning Pacific division champs. I’m not even thinking about the Coyotes yet. But wouldn’t it be amazing if we made the playoffs and the Sharks didn’t? But on the sober side, we’re heading directly into a Cat 5 storm known as a brutal road trip… 4 games that won’t conclude until a week from today. And it will go a long way toward revealing if this team can stay steady or fall back into their (not so) old ways. No doubt, skepticism still abounds… and rightfully so. What do you think?

Playoffs: The Top 10 predictors in the standings at the end of the regular season will qualify for the esteemed Playoff Prediction Panel. You will be looked upon for guidance on hockey blogs and admired all across the Kingdom. Trumpets will sound wherever you go. There’s still loads of time to crack the Top 10.

Standings are sorted by Points, Win/Loss, Plus/Minus, Exacta/Perfecta. A win gets you 2 points. Or a correct score gets you 3 points (exacta). Or a correct score (along with regulation, overtime or shootout correct) gets you 4 points (perfecta).

Plus/Minus: New rule: Minus are only counted if you lose so the worst you can get is Even if you win. If you lose, you get a -1 for every goal you’re wrong in your prediction. Then one of the following… If you predict one correct score then you get a +1. If you predict the total number of goals in the game correct then you get a +1. If you predict the exact score then you get a +3. If you predict the exact score and ending (reg/ot/so) then you get a +4.

*TheRealQuisp is a cereal character and hockey fan. I couldn’t bear to lose the fake Quisp from the game after he quit, so I adopted his namesake as his replacement. His performance will not count in the standings. But will in the hearts and minds of cereal fans the world over.

    I don’t if anyone is interested, but I have a day by day schedule grid for all games for contending teams in the western conference (except det, van, and stl who have the 1,2,and 4 spots locked up). You could go beyond Kingstradamus, and predict where each team finishes. It’s handy to have so you know who’s playing who for the rest of the way.

    GO KINGS GO!!!

    Waves headed to get some Chinese food, including kilt and roasted duck! That was a nicely played game.

    What’s that smell? KILLED DUCK! :D
