Kukla's Korner Hockey

Thanks for checking in with the Kukla’s Korner NHL Hat Trick Challenge advise piece number two. As you hopefully know by now the National Hockey League and league sponsor Enterprise have partnered up for the NHL Hat Trick Challenge- an online prediction game featuring a series of questions to test hockey fans’ ability to predict various game outcomes.
The individual who scores the most hat tricks throughout the playoffs will win the Hat Trick Challenge and receive a trip for two to the 2015 NHL All-Star Game!
Kukla’s Korner has teamed up and will feature the daily question’s today (read on), along with June 3rd and June 5th. On our daily post days we will be on Twitter @KuklasKorner and @MonicaMcAlister discussing and promoting that day. Those that interact on Twitter using the official #NHLHatTrickChallenge hashtag will be entered for bonus prizes.
How to play…
It is a pretty easy to get started If you haven’t yet, just go here and sign up for the NHL Hat Trick Challenge presented by Enterprise to predict what happens on the ice. As the amazingly faithful Kukla’s Korner reader you are, be sure to select the Kukla’s Korner league once you have signed up to play against myself and other KK faithful and see how you rank against others that maybe you flame war with in the comments.
The objective is to accumulate the most “Hat Tricks” overall (not just in the Kukla’s Korner league). To score a hat trick, you must correctly answer all three daily questions based on possible outcomes involving the NHL playoff games. There are three new questions each day and each question only has one right answer.
You can go on your gut instinct or use some fancy stats to make your predications every day and of course check back here for the four days of content, Twitter hashtag interaction with bonus prizes or you can just flip a coin.
I created the Kukla’s Korner league as a public league already . Along with the league we will have posts about it, tweets, and some helpful commentary here on Kukla’s Korner but also on Twitter (@KuklasKorner and myself @MonicaMcAlister use the hashtag #NHLHatTrickChallenge to engage on Twitter to go along with the NHL Hat Trick Challenge for bonus material and the additional prize giveaways.
Here are today’s questions:
1. Will Los Angeles score a power-play goal in Game 6? Yes or No
Though Chicago will go out to try and play a simple game and keep the Kings at bay I see a few penalties called especially if Chicago gets down in the game and they start to feel that additional pressure of their season coming to an end by nights end. Kings will take advantage of this and score on the man advantage.
2. Will Patrick Kane score a goal in Game 6? Yes or No
As one of the clutch players for the Blackhawks Kane has had many major clutch goals in this career thus far including a little known OT goal that clinched the Stanley Cup. I know this thus the Kings know this fact so watch for the Kings to try and shut down Patrick Kane, thus I have to go with no goal for Kane tonight.
3. Which team will win Game 6? Blackhawks or Kings
Game Six is back in LA and look for the Kings to give California something to rally around. It was one of the first things covered in sports and society classes that people use sports as an escape. Give them something to focus on for a few hours that doesn’t remind them of whatever may be troubling them. Currently in California there are the fires, the mourning and the continued fiasco with the NBA’s Clippers ownership. The Kings winning tonight would seal their Stanley Cup Finals spot and give all of California something to get behind and what could be better than a West Coast vs. East Coast Final? My pick - Kings.
