Wave-Off Lift Sharks

29 Mar 2018

Late Saturday night in overtime, all of Las Vegas erupted in celebration as the Golden Knights scored, apparently putting the Knights up 2-0 in their series with the San Jose Sharks.  But the game-winning goal was waved off, and one overtime later Logan Couture found the net for the Sharks. The overturned goal displaced 154 points on the GridCard, lifting one Heart in particular.

After claiming over 200 victims in the first few weeks of 2018, the Black Death of GridCard--Heart of a Hooligan--lay dormant all spring only to return like the Second Pandemic, more deadly than ever. The GOTY front runner posted a Perfect 45 for his jaw-dropping seventh win of the year, more than double the wins of his nearest competitor Kevin K (3). Heart of a Hooligan joins Marta and MMc as the only players to have posted a Perfect 45.

A new Personal Best for mac (40) couldn't overcome the goalie interference. But the wave-off really hurt Ace (35) who bet heavily on the Knights (7) and would have earned the GridCard Win.  In his first ever GridCard game, keyz (34) earned a Qualifying Score as did veterans JeepCreeper (32), GB55 (30), and ranvilld12 (29).
