Playoff season has arrived in the NHL and TSN.ca invites you to play the Playoff Hockey Challenge.
In this cap-based game, each team has a fictional $100.0 spending limit under which they must fit one goaltender, four defencemen and six forwards, with the ability to shake up the roster between the first and second round and then again between the second and third rounds of the postseason.
Points are given out for goals and assists, but there are also bonus points for defencemen in that they can get a point in any game that their team records a shutout. Goaltenders receive two points for a win and one additional point for a shutout.
Players are assigned a market value, based on their statistical production, so tough choices have to be made along the way.
If you want Roberto Luongo as your goaltender or the Sedin Twins up front, that's entirely possible, but it's going to cost you and may require making some bargain selections later, but if you happen to hit on an inexpensive player that turns out to be very productive, that could be the kind of pick that can make the difference between winning and losing.
The Grand Prize winner will get a $2,000 Best Buy gift card, so log in, pick your team and play along as you watch the NHL Playoffs on TSN!
