Leagues

We will run a Score Prediction competition during the 2011-2012 season only for the NHL.

Predictions

You will have 750 score predictions at your disposal (to be used during regular season and playoffs). You can't predict score of any game more than once.

Points and Prediction Types

There are 3 types of score prediction you can make: Normal, Sure Thing and Desperado. Your prediction earns points when you got the score right. If you didn't get the score right, but got the winning team right, you also get points.

A new points system will be introduced for the 2013-2014 season. The old system didn't take into account exactly how likely each scoreline was in the current NHL. After analyzing the NHL score distribution over the last 6 years, we came up with the new system.

If you get the score right, here's the points that you get:

If you get the score wrong but still get the winning team right then you get 1 point. If you also get the goal difference correctly, you will also get the following bonus:
