I am excited to announce Lakelivin the winner.  He won the questions with 9 points and then recruiting the most votes for his picture (slight anti Staal bias maybe  but still funny).

Thanks all!

 

After the game I didn't think I'd even be in the running for most points on the questions.:grin:  The key was that although the Canes gave up a few more shots than I anticipated, Darling gave up more goals than I thought, too, resulting in only 23 saves.  Silver lining, as I'd have preferred losing those contest points with Darling saving all 27 shots he faced. Maybe next game . . .

 

Yeah, I submitted the picture as much for it's humor as anything else.  Probably helped that Eric seemed to antagonize most Canes fans during the game (including, I'm guessing, the judges). :P

 

As far as the prize: instead of mailing it to me, would it be possible to have someone give it to a younger kid (or maybe two if they're together) at an upcoming Canes game?  Maybe someone sitting up in the cheap seats?  I remember as a kid how cool I found it to bring something home from a sporting event, as our family budget didn't allow for a lot of souvenirs . . .
