Game 7 (Spoiler Alert!) Who Wins The Prediction Challenge?

June 10, 2019

cut

Dear players,

I may not know much about hockey (case in point: see where I am in the standings?you can find me if you start by looking at the bottom), but I do know that there are only two possibilities Wednesday night: the Boston Bruins winning their seventh Stanley Cup , or the St. Louis Blues winning their first Cup ever.

Even more importantly, you might be asking, is how does that affect who wins our Prediction Challenge?

Don’t read any further if you don’t like spoilers…

There are two players who are guaranteed a prize for finishing in the top five regardless of who wins: Logan will be first with a Bruins win (or fourth if the Blues pull it off), or Doug with a Blues win (or second, respectively). Chris, Pete, Ed, Terry, Bob and Sean will all be rooting for their team to come out on top as their positions are all-or-nothing.

This will be the first Game 7 in a Stanley Cup Final since, you guessed it, 2011 when the Bruins beat the Canucks in Vancouver. Enjoy the game! ~ Michael

Prospective results, based on a Bruins Victory:

Overall
1 Logan Zetaruk 307 $ 90.00
2 Doug Wansbrough 224 $ 50.00
