So… um… PennerPoint™ isn't really going all that well this season. So introducing…


The rules are simple… just guess the exact time and period that brand-new 1st Line Left Winger, Simon Gagne, scores his 1st goal of the season today against the Detroit Red Wings… and you win a free t-shirt from The Royal Half Gift Shoppe.

Wear it ironically!

Now remember… hockey is played with a clock that counts down from 20:00… so your prediction for GagneGoal™ has to match the time from the official box score.

Using this screenshot, the goal is scored at 13:08 of the first period. NOT 6:52 of the first.

You can put your predictions in the comments below or reply to me on Twitter with #GagneGoal. You MUST use the hashtag #GagneGoal to be eligible. Good luck! Entries end at 9:30am Pacific Time this morning!
