Two things:
1.  With the league restricting everyone to two bubbles, how are they handling the EBUG?
2.  The best of 5 series are being played under normal playoff "you play until someone scores" overtime rules, but the round robin between the top seeds is being played under regular season bonus hockey rules, correct?

#2 that is correct, complete with loser point. if teams are tied in points after the three games, then the first and only tiebreaker is regular season standing.
#1 I believe all teams have brought at least three goalies into the bubble, and they were allowed to bring four, so they already have their own emergency goalie.

And I know some teams have a 4th in quarantine in their home city as a standby.

I'm really hoping that NHL.TV doesn't give me an issue with the Rangers feed since it's on NBCSports I'd rather watch the MGS feed - They have actual energy.

Sorry to hear that, keep your head up. All you can do sometimes is to put one foot in front of the other, but sometimes that is enough.

I'm confused by the question asking about the Hurricanes vs Rangers series. You give us the choice of Jerks or Rags, but that's the same team twice.

Also, I want to thank Gary Bettman for recognizing that the Rangers are the rightful owners of the Stanley Cup and therefore, deserving of having the most rest time by starting them off in the first game. I think those few hours will be huge down the road.

Are we doing the Hat Trick Challenge this round?
If so, is there a Fark league I can join? Last year I think it was Goon Juice Aficionados.

I don't have a Hat Trick thing set up. The predictions thing is to make up for no bracket game until the 1st round proper.

Thanks, Chimpy. Done.
