Not that it matters at all but why don't I get the +1 for Ovechkin?

Washington in 6 +4, there will be a 2OT game, Marchessault scores first, Ovechkin scores most +1, Wilson tops the PIMs (is je concussed?), Feury has best Save Pct, Ovechkin gets Conn Smythe +1.

Glad I tuned in to that pregame. I've never seen anything quite like that before in sports.

posted by rcade at 08:23 PM on May 28

WOW, Now that was a pregame.

I didn't recognize the nickname. You move one point up, which could be huge in the Costanza.

I'm in the UK and haven't seen a result

I think Wash will win but in the interests of winning this contest:

VEGAS IN 7

Longest: 60 minutes +1

First goal: MAFleury (I see some strikethroughs already)

Conn Smythe Karlsson

Most goals Karlsson

Most penalty. Neal

% Fleury

Total goals. 33

Off to check score (just woke up and remembered this thing. If not cool then I volunteer for 2nd last )

Colin Miller blew everybody up on that pick.

Thanks for the point on "Ovi" Ovechkin. If I win the Costanza, I want to earn it fair and square. And sorry for the hurried phone post yesterday. Let me clean up that formatting for you:

Washington in 6 +4

There will be a 2OT game

Marchessault scores first

Ovechkin gets Conn Smythe +1

Ovechkin scores most goals, +1

Wilson tops the PIMs (is he concussed? [on edit] or just an asshole),

Fleury has best Save Pct

Just an asshole and somehow no suspension for this.....
