What a game!  Brock Boeser ties Greg Adams (1987) and Rick Blight (1976) for the team record of most goals on opening night.  I wonder if Darrell from Save-On-Foods paid Tocchet to limit Boeser's ice time after that 4th goal?




While nobody correctly predicted the final score, 66 people got on the board with at least one point.  Honourable mentions to @CaptainQuin, @GasThomas and @Joe King for jumping out to the early lead with two points each.



The season opening leaderboard:



Next up, the rematch.  Vancouver @ Edmonton, Saturday at 7:00 PDT



Predict the winner, the score and the Game Winning Goal (or shootout).

  • Predict the winning team - 1pt
  • Predict the right score, but not the right team - 1pt
  • Predict the right team AND the right score - 3pts
  • Predict the Game Winning Goal scorer, OR predict the winning team in the shootout - 1pt
  • Predict the winning team, final score & GWG (or shootout) - 5pts


Bonus question - Who scores the Canucks first road goal of the season? - 1pt


As always, only one prediction per game, no predictions or edits after puck drop, no conditional predictions and no gambling.  If you have questions, or think I have made a mistake in your score, please DM me. Full PTSC rules can be found in the season opening thread.


My predictions:

4 - 2 Oilers

Kuzmenko with the game winning goal

Petey with the first road goal


Good luck and Go :canucks: Go!


Kuzmenko scores the winning goal for the Oilers?

Canucks win 7-4, EP40 with the hatty, scoring the first road goal and the GWG. :classic_ninja:

I remember in a scoring drought some years ago John Shorthouse said during the broadcast that if the Canucks as a team score five goals someone should win a million dollars.


That was part of the "score and win" contest that Save-On Foods (and before them, Safeway) offered.  Not sure if they're continuing that contest this year, but in recent years, a player scoring 4 would have netted someone a handy 100k.




(PS, Wooooooo!  on the far left column on my first shot!  Let's see how long that lasts... :classic_rolleyes:)

Predicting the game will be much more of a see-saw battle with more aggression between the players rather than the scoreboard. We should be able to bring the highs and momentum into Game 2 but it will be tight result:


2-1 Canucks Win 

Captain Hughes with the GWG

Kuzmenko with the first road goal
