Blackhawks Prediction Game - Blackhawks @ Wild (1/30)
 
Feel free to join in at any point of the season. Everyone is expected to keep track of their own score. The idea is to guess a few things about what happens in the game in order to accumulate points. Most points at the end of the year gets bragging rights for the year, and maybe I'll throw in some sort of small prize at the end of the year as well. Your answer should be in this format to standardize it and keep it neat and orderly. Here is what your answers should look like, and remember to keep track of your score throughout the season in each post.

My Total Season Points so far: 0
1. First goal scorer: Player name (2 points)
2. Winning team: Team name (1 points - 2 points if you guess the correct score as well as the winning team)
3. 3 stars of the game (based on NHL.com): Player name 1, player name 2, player name 3 (1 point per star)

I (or someone else) will post the answer to each of the 3 categories sometime after the game ends either that night or the next day.

NOTE: Mods, please don't close this thread until the results are posted in here after the game by someone. That way we won't have to open a thread for results each day as well. Message me if you have a problem with this.

someone in one of the other predic threads said it would be interesting to run a proxy on this (i.e what would happen if the same combination was predicted for every single game in the season...how would that combination work out). the stats background in me has decided that would be interesting to find out...so i propose to (along with my own predictions) do a secondary prediction where i use the same combination for every single game...and see how "phony/proxy account" does over the season.

the combination i propose to use is

My Total Season Points so far: 0
1. First goal scorer: Toews (2 points)
2. Winning team: Hawks, 3-2 (1 points - 2 points if you guess the correct score as well as the winning team)
3. 3 stars of the game (based on NHL.com): Toews, Hossa, Kane (1 point per star)

I didn't pick the ^^ on the basis of previous games this year - i just made it up b/c I think toews, kane, hossa are our best players - and 3-2 seems like a predictable score. I'll keep up the phony/proxy account myself (and go back and calculate the score) - but if anyone thinks the above uniform predictions should be altered let me know.
