The Whatever-th Annual Lighthouse Hockey Season Prediction Contest

TFW you were *this* close to first place but you didn't think Pulock would be scratched. - Bruce Bennett/Getty Images

And this season,it's not 1, not 2 but 3 fabulous contests, all in one. That's right, you have to make 3x the number of predictions this year.


It will work like this: you'll predict 3 outcomes. The first will be the result as of the conclusion of game #21 (Wed, Nov 22 vs Philly). You'll be able to wallow in your failure while being tormented by family and poorly prepared dead bird. Second up, is the result after the conclusion of game #41 (Thu, Jan 4 @ Philly). Kick the new year off right contemplating your inability to correctly guess random numbers generated by your favorite team. And finally, the traditional full season picks. Winners receive the admiration of maybe a person or two, memorialization as a sockpuppet account (void if you're already a sockpuppet account) and a lifetime of scorn and derision from people who actually lead productive lives. When you submit your entry below (limit 1 entry per account), please copy and paste the template and enter your 3 answers (quarter, half and final) separated by commas. If you aren't sure what a comma is, here's some help: iRdYEYn.0.png Don't worry, if you're some commie Euro who commonly uses commas where you should rightly be using decimal points, I'll make sure your weird numbers make it into the contest in Murican, as is right and proper. Also, we'll be using the Imperial system, not that commie decimal trash. Sorry Canadian friends! Entry Deadline is 6:45 PM Eastern Time, Friday, October 6, 2017. You are allowed to change your answer as many times as you like before the deadline. Please reply to your original guess with your new guesses. Only the last one will be recorded on my official spreadsheet of doom.
