If you know who is doing a game, please don’t spoil it for everyone else, but feel free to use that info in your picks.

Also MIN-DET isn’t on NBC’s schedule anymore for whatever reason, so I’ve replaced it with COL @ EDM, so be sure to update your picks.

2013 Commentators Comp: Week 1

Alright, it’s back. A refresher of rules. You will choose a pairing (or three) for each game. A correct pairing is worth 3 points. 1/2 (or 1/3) is worth 1 point and 2/3s is worth 2 points. Rinkside reporters are not included, just play-by-play announcers. This week’s picks are due on Friday 18 January at 11:00pm Pacific (let’s hope they’re not spoiled before then!). If anyone didn’t play last year and needs more information on the rules, just ask. I’ll usually only include 5 or 6 games per week. Don’t bother guessing others please because its just more stuff I have to look through when adding up points.
