I’m expecting big minutes from Mac Truck yet again. (Photo: Melissa Andus)
So I was a little off on my guess for Steve Eminger. That said, anyone who tells me they thought he would see shifts in the third period AND overtime is lying.
Anyway, let’s try this again. Today, we’re going the other route and trying to guess the ice time for someone who spends half the game away from the bench – Ryan McDonagh.
In the past two games (i.e. the ones without Marc Staal), McDonagh has played almost an entire game (56:20) in regulation. Surprisingly, he played more in the New York game than in the one in Washington. So how much do we think he is going to play today? Honestly, I think the 31:29 he played in game four was a lot so unless something happens to one of our d-men again, he shouldn’t hit that. I’m going to say 25:21.
What does everyone think? You can read the rules of the game here and remember to comment below with your guess.
