***Predictions #80: @ Sabres, APR 3: In Buffalo? 100% guaranteed loss

As of game #20, new posters are no longer allowed into the contest. At this point, you have no hope of competing for the title and it creates a significant amount more work for me to add new users. You will need to wait until next year to join.

If you think that I have made an error in your points (there's a first, or tenth, time for everything) please PM me (don't post it in the thread) and include the number of the game and the number of the post in the thread where you posted your pick so I can review it without going through the entire thread. I will reply in a PM and make any changes necessary to your totals.

1. Post the team which will win and by what score and who will score first Leaf goal. Write anything else you like so long as you make clear those three variables. If you pick the correct team you will receive 1 point. If you pick the correct score but the wrong team you will receive 2 points. If you pick both the correct score and the correct winning team you will receive 4 points.
2. 3 points for the name of Maple Leaf who scores the team's first goal of the game. The Joepeps!! rule: If you expect a shutout, pick the opponent player who scores first. But if a Leaf does score, that pick will not be counted.
3. If you pick everything correctly (team, score, goalscorer) - aka "Grand Salami" - you will get 8 points and the envy and resentment of all other players.
4. Picks must be made and posted by puck drop on game day.
5. Picks must be made in the prediction thread -- if you post them anywhere else, including the game day thread, they will not count.
6. No if...then picks (Detroit 8-2 if Giguere, Toronto 2-0 if Gustavsson, or Kulemin gets goal if he plays, otherwise Kaberle).
7. If want to modify your pick be sure to do so as an edit in the post of your original pick, Check that you haven't accidentally made two different picks in the same thread - you'd be surprised how often that happens. In those cases neither will count and you will have a "0" for that game.
8. Please don't waste my time and server space with ridiculous picks - these are not particularly kind to your reputation for high wit and will be ignored by me anyway, now and forever.
9. Scoreless shootout caveat: In the case of a scoreless shootout (0-0 through OT) the counted goal will be the first Leaf shooter to score. In the event no Leaf shooters score, the first opposing shooter to score will count under the Jeopeps!! rule
NOTE: If you had your forum username changed and wish to combine points please let me know. I enter a lot of these every game so I don't always recognize the usernames, even if the changes are small. Just PM me with your old username (obviously from the new one) and I'll combine them. Obviously if they are two separate accounts I need some form of proof that you control both of them. This is especially important now after game 20 as posters not already on record will not have their picks counted.

1 - hotpaws gets the most impressive grand salami that I can remember.
I looked back, and saw that he/she predicted a Buffalo win - when it was Toronto who won. And I think that's the game/prediction you were referring to, no?

Buffalo 2-0.
