    Default $500 SEASON-LONG CONTEST: Predict the Road Trips (Part 2)

    Hi all. Back for another season of road trip prediction contests.
    I'm going to simplify it a lot this season and offer a single cash prize to the overall winner, who will also qualify for the $1,000 Contest of the Decade.

    Here's how it works:
    The Kings' four longest road trips this season are as follows:

    Road Trip #1 (5 games)
    Tue Nov 8 4:30pm @ TOR
    Thu Nov 10 4:30pm @ MTL
    Fri Nov 11 4:30pm @ OTT
    Sun Nov 13 11am @ WPG
    Tue Nov 15 6pm @ COL

    Road Trip #2 (9 games)
    Tue Dec 13 4pm @ BUF
    Thu Dec 15 4:30pm @ DET
    Fri Dec 16 4pm @ PIT
    Sun Dec 18 10am @ BOS
    Tue Dec 20 4pm @ CBJ
    Thu Dec 22 5pm @ NAS
    Fri Dec 23 5:30pm @ DAL
    Wed Dec 28 7pm @ VAN
    Thu Dec 29 6pm @ EDM

    Road Trip #3 (5 games)
    Sat Jan 21 4pm @ NYI
    Mon Jan 23 4pm @ NYR
    Tue Jan 24 4pm @ NJD
    Thu Jan 26 4pm @ CAR
    Tue Jan 31 6pm @ ARI

    Road Trip #4 (4 games)
    Sat Feb 4 10am @ PHI
    Sun Feb 5 9am @ WAS
    Tue Feb 7 4:30pm @ TBL
    Thu Feb 9 4:30pm @ FLA

    I will start a thread before each of the four road trips accepting entries with predictions for the trips on that game.
    (This is the thread for the second trip.)
    Please predict whether the Kings will WIN or LOSE each game on the trip, as well as the exact score of the LAST game on the trip.
    For example, for this second road trip, a valid entry might read:

    @ BUF L
    @ DET W
    @ PIT L
    @ BOS W
    @ CBJ W
    @ NAS L
    @ DAL L
    @ VAN W
    @ EDM W 5-4

    The contest will be scored as follows:
    For each correct WIN-LOSS prediction, 2 points (23 games x 2 points = 46 possible points).
    For each correct SCORE prediction, 1 point (4 games x 1 point = 4 possible points).
    The maximum score for the season-long contest is therefore 50 points.
    The winner will receive $10 x (his or her winning score) for a maximum grand prize of $500.
    In the event of a tie, the winners will divide the grand prize or (only if all agree) a random draw will determine a single winner.
    Regardless, all who tie with the winning score will qualify for the $1,000 Contest of the Decade.

    Standings after Road Trip #1:
    1.) TooCool 9
    2.-3.) makemelaugh, xLAxKingsx 8
    4.-5.) Rusty, Vrankol 7
    6.-18.) jammer06, jccawdrey, eddieshack23, Rogie-Vachon, Lich King, Fuzzybunny19, RagBone, forum gold, Nyssa42, FishMonger, UnknownMan, King Smokey, CUP4LA 6
    19.-27.) Liz4LA, santiclaws, borinka99, cokingsfan, chaingunsofdoom, JETS GARAGE, Rawley19, shadowalk, empire 4
    28.-29.) Dexter, SteveM 2
    [maximum grand prize: $480]

    For each road trip, all valid entries must precede the start of the first game.
    You may duplicate another contestant's entry; however, this may reduce your expected value.
    It is theoretically possible to win the contest without entering one or more of the four parts.

    All the standard disclaimers apply.
    I reserve the right to terminate the contest or modify the rules at any time and for any reason in my sole, absolute, and arbitrary discretion, and not to award any prize. Entering this contest does not entitle you to any legal right or expectancy, regardless of performance. In the event of confusion regarding an entry, I will make a good faith effort to contact the contestant for clarification; however, I reserve the right to reject any entry in whole or in part.

    Good luck and GO KINGS GO!!!

    This is going to be brutal:

    BUF Win
    DET Loss
    PIT Loss
    BOS Loss (pre-dawn start time?)
    CBJ Loss
    NAS Win
    DAL Loss
    VAN Win
    EDM Win 5-2 (just to make the Oilers fans salty)
