Shoutout: Yesterday, we asked subscribers to predict the winner of Avalanche-Golden Knights, the final score, and the game’s first goal-scorer. Colorado won 2-1, with Vegas’ Alex Pietrangelo scoring first.

While no one foresaw Pietrangelo finding the net first, subscriber David Nagelberg (@SportsGuruDave) correctly predicted the Avs to win 2-1. Terrific job, David!

Keep the picks coming, everyone!
