What is it? The concept is pretty simple, guess who scores the Oilers' first goal of the evening and you could win a prize.

How do I play? Post your prediction in the comments below.

How do the points work? A correct guess is worth 10 points. If the players you pick scores the Oilers' second goal you receive 5 points. The third goal of the evening is worth 3 points. Goals four, five, six, and beyond are all worth 1 point. You receive points for every goal that "your" player scores during the game.

Can you give me an example? Luke Gazdic scores a natural hat trick and does a bunch of other things that leave you speechless. The Blues battle back though, tying the games up at three before Justin Schultz scores to put the Oilers back in front. Gazdic add an empty net goal and the Oilers win 5-3. If you chose Gazdic, you get 19 points. Schultz would have been worth 1.

What can I win? We'll be tallying the points on a weekly basis. After the last game in November the leader will win a Connor MccDavid jersey shirt. And then we'll start the whole thing over again in December with a brand new prize.

Official rules will be posted soon. Comments will be closed at game time, so get your predictions in now.
