Just curious. Is there a first goal prediction game on these boards? If not, would you like one?

Adding few more just for fun.

Best highlight goal: Bobby Ryan
Best comeback: Toni Lydman
Longest pointstreak: Teemu Selänne (7 games)
Most hat tricks: Bobby Ryan (1 hat trick)
+/- leader: Bryan Allen
Biggest hit: Francois Beauchemin
Most fights: Matt Beleskey
Most PP goals: Teemu Selänne
Most PK goals: Corey Perry
Most assists: Ryan Getzlaf

EDIT: First goal of season: Peter Holland

WTF moment of the season: Bobby Ryan hits Sheldon Souray by accident
Funniest moment of the season: Kyle Palmieri scores a goal with his head
Most unfair moment of the season: Uncalled high sticking on Getzlaf in Detroit
Luckiest moment of the season: Luca Sbisa falls on the puck to make it unclear if it's over the goal line leading to no goal. Three main board threads are made do to this
