************************************​**​*********************
THE BRACKET CHALLENGE WINDOW IS OPEN
*************************************​*​*********************
......but not for long!  Must be complete before 1st puck drop TODAY!!


Registration is open now for the Bracket Challenge.. You now can do brackets up to the start of the first playoff broadcast (TODAY!!! **3:00PM** ET!!)... **A smallish window.**
Anyway, I've re-up'd the "Goon Juice Aficionados" league..  password "Fark234"
Join here:  https://bracketchallenge.nhl.com/leag​u​es/goon-juice-aficionados
You will also need an NHL.com ID, *fill our your bio first or be among the blank entries* and because domains, sign in in both places if/when you create a new account.

Also
Special Agent has done a league with the same name and password at the Hat Trick Challenge. There is a new segment of play begining with the start of the actual playoffs today so everyone kinda gets a fresh start. Make sure you get your picks done before first broadcast starts, the questions lock with the start of the broadcast to do with that question, already missed 2 points with that myself in the return-to-play segment.
Here for HTC: https://hattrick.nhl.com/#/league/2942 which you will have to copy pasta because [hashtag] reasons.

Forgot to add this: Also, you can edit how your bracket is identified... Go to your bracket, click Edit next to the bracket name (Your name plus numbers) and change the name to your Fark handle or other thing.

GO GOOD HOCKEY!!

Did we hockey Farkers ever come up with a recipe for a "Squish Him Into The Boundary" cocktail? I've been trying to come up with one, but the best I could do was a drink with muddled cherries and orange, vodak, and cherry liqueur (you know, for blood). Sadly, it looks like some bastardized hybrid of a Wisconsin Old Fashioned and a dare.

My playoff bracket is much more people I want to win instead of people who if I sit and think of it actually will win.

Except for the Flyers, because no matter how much my heart wants them to lose I can't imagine a world where the Canadiens aren't bounced from the first round like the Penguin flaying bums they are.

Has it been made public yet? When I heard this earlier, NPR was still quoting an anonymous source

Unfortunately blacked out on nhl.tv it seems and the TV is not visible from my desk so I'll just get to listen to the early games.

To those who have made it past qualifying...
