    Default $500 SEASON-LONG CONTEST: Predict the Road Trips (Part 2 of 6)

    Hi all. Back for part two of the $500 season-long contest: predict the road trips.

    This season I'm awarding a first prize and a second prize.
    There's also always a bonus contest in conjunction with the last trip of the year, for those not still in contention.

    Here's how this season's contest works:

    The Kings have six road trips of four or more games:

    Road Trip #1 (6 games)
    Sat Oct 21 4pm @ CBJ
    Mon Oct 23 4pm @ TOR
    Tue Oct 24 4:30pm @ OTT
    Thu Oct 26 4:30pm @ MTL
    Sat Oct 28 4pm @ BOS
    Mon Oct 30 5pm @ STL

    Road Trip #2 (4 games)
    Tue Nov 28 4:30pm @ DET
    Thu Nov 30 4pm @ WAS
    Fri Dec 1 5pm @ STL
    Sun Dec 3 4pm @ CHI

    Road Trip #3 (4 games)
    Tue Dec 12 4pm @ NJD
    Fri Dec 15 4pm @ NYR
    Sat Dec 16 4pm @ NYI
    Mon Dec 18 4pm @ PHI

    Road Trip #4 (4 games)
    Tue Jan 23 7pm @ VAN
    Wed Jan 24 7pm @ CGY
    Tue Jan 30 5:30pm @ DAL
    Thu Feb 1 5:30pm @ NAS

    Road Trip #5 (7 games)
    Fri Feb 9 4:30pm @ FLA
    Sat Feb 10 4pm @ TBL
    Tue Feb 13 4pm @ CAR
    Thu Feb 15 4pm @ PIT
    Sat Feb 17 10am @ BUF
    Mon Feb 19 5:30pm @ CHI
    Tue Feb 20 5pm @ WPG

    Road Trip #6 (4 games)
    Mon Mar 19 5pm @ MIN
    Tue Mar 20 5pm @ WPG
    Thu Mar 22 6pm @ COL
    Sat Mar 24 7pm @ EDM

    I will start a thread before each of these six road trips accepting entries with predictions for the games on that trip.
    (This is the thread for the second trip.)

    For each 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.
    As a courtesy to me, for the score prediction, please list the Kings' score first (e.g., "W 3-2" or "L 2-3," not "L 3-2"). Thanks.
    For example, for this second road trip, a valid entry might read:

    @ DET W
    @ WAS L
    @ STL W
    @ CHI L 2-5

    Scoring:
    The maximum score for the season-long contest is 100 points.
    For each correct WIN-LOSS prediction, a contestant receives 3 points (29 games x 3 points = 87 possible points).
    For each correct SCORE prediction, 1 point (6 games x 1 point = 6 possible points).
    The remaining seven points will involve the use of tokens.

    Each contestant receives seven tokens to use at any time during the season-long contest.
    You use one or more tokens by noting on your entry(ies), beside the relevant game(s), the number of tokens you wish to apply to that game.
    For example, on the above entry, if I wished to apply one token to the Washington game, that line would read "@ WAS L (one token)."
    If your win-loss prediction for a game to which you have applied token(s) is correct, you receive one bonus point for each token you applied to that game.

    They are yours to bet with as you choose.
    You may use them all on one game, spread them among seven games, or anything in between.
    You may use them all on one road trip, spread them among the six road trips, or anything in between.
    You may use them early to build a lead, save them for later to mount a comeback, or anything in between.
    Or you may simply feel especially confident about the outcome of one or more games and use them accordingly.
    (Note that if you use them on the last game of a road trip, you do not need to get the score right to win the bet, only the win-loss outcome.)
    Any tokens that remain unused after the last trip have a zero value; "use 'em or lose 'em."

    First place will receive $5 x (his or her winning score) for a maximum grand prize of $500 [current max: $460].
    Second place will receive $1 x (his or her score) for a maximum second prize of $100 [current max: $92].
    In the event of any tie, those tied will divide the applicable prize(s) or (only if all agree) a random draw will determine a single winner.
    Regardless, all who tie with the first place score will qualify for the $1,000 Contest of the Decade.

    Here are the standings after Road Trip #1 .
    Each contestant has seven tokens remaining, unless otherwise indicated.

    General rules:
    For each road trip, all valid entries must be posted before the scheduled start time of the first game, as listed above.
    Always read my first post with each trip as special rules may apply, especially with respect to the last trip, when those in contention are usually asked to submit entries to me by private message.
    Refer back to the rules regularly as they may be updated and you are responsible for complying with them in their current form.
    Once you have submitted your entry for a trip, you may not change it without express permission.
    If I have liked your entry post, that means it has been viewed, accepted and recorded, and cannot be changed.
    You may duplicate another contestant's entry; however, this may reduce your expected value.
    It is theoretically possible to win a prize without entering one or more of the six parts. New contestants are welcome at any point, and I sometimes add bonuses (like the $18 Guarantee) without advance notice.
    Anybody posting from multiple accounts will be disqualified.

    All the standard disclaimers apply.
    I reserve the right to decide any questions of rule interpretation in my sole, absolute and arbitrary discretion.
    I reserve the right to terminate the contest at any time (including after its completion) 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 may 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!!!
