Strange days indeed and with the play-in going to OT and I forgot to set the settings. The Oilers would go on to win in a shootout because the people watching voted for that (over going to rematch and playing the game over again with next goal wins rules) and Game Two ends 4-3 in a shootout. That mix up (oversight by me) has been fixed and as per the new play-in rules, all further games will be continuous overtime. That is true for Game Three tonight which starts at 7pm MT right here in this article.
About 15 minutes prior to game time, the stream will be live here:
How we got here:
In case you missed it, we ran a completely random sim (aside from some tweaking to the sliders to make them more realistic for a 20 minute period sim) and the Edmonton Oilers, valiantly fought hard to make a series of it in the Western Conference Finals before falling to the Dallas Stars in 7 games.
If you would like to check out that recap check here:
When we ran the previous playoff stream, you asked for the ability to pick the jersey matchup each night. We love doing this for you and this will continue, I will just be running the jersey polls the day before a game to get them out there longer, and to get others to tune in as well as you!
