OK, heres the deal: The following information is for entertainment purposes only. Please dont copy my selections and paste them into your bowl confidence pools and then curse me out on Twitter three weeks from now about my (possibly) horrible selections.To be honest, Im confident in about the first 10 selections. After that, theyre pretty much toss-ups, and the outcomes might come down to what always matters most during bowl season: motivation.Here are my bowl predictions, ranked in the order of most confident to least confident.?40.

Schenn entered with just three points during the streak, but turned out to be the star this time.Different parts of our game have pushed us over the finish line on different nights, coach Dave Hakstol said.Kari Lehtonen made 18 saves for the Stars, falling to 1-11-3 against Philadelphia.Stars coach Lindy Ruff thought the penalty that set up the tying goal, a cross check on Jamie Oleksiak, was a soft call.I dont see much there, he said.I thought a couple of calls were maybe a little bit light and they still ended up putting it in the back of their net, Ruff added.

The goal culminated hard work in the offensive zone by the Stars and a poor job of the Philadelphia defense clearing the puck from its goal line.
