Justin gets browbeaten into changing a pick.

We didn't discuss this on the show, but we announce the SOTSOHockey "Win Justin Jelinek's Money" NHL Bracket Challenge.

In honor of his two favorite players, Justin is putting up $11.40 that says he has the winning bracket. But in the spirit of the greatest game show ever produced, he will defend his money by "becoming a common contestant."

(If anyone asks why not $40.11 Justin's two favorite players may suddenly become Keith Ballard and Charlie Coyle.)

If Justin wins the SOTSOHockey League at NHL.com's Bracket Challenge there will be no prize awarded!

To challenge Justin for the $11.40 grand prize:
1)  Enter the SOTSOHockey League at NHL.com's Bracket Challenge.
2)  Have the highest ranking entry among eligible contents and rank higher than Justin's entry, entry name: "Justin J".

NHL.com Bracket Challenge scoring and tiebreakers apply in ranking.  Prize will be divided equally in the event of winning entries tied after tiebreakers.

To be eligible contestants must do all of the following before NHL.com locks the brackets before play begins on Wednesday.

1)  Must follow both @SOTSOHockeyJJ and @SOTSOHockeyJoe on Twitter
2)  Must tweet Entry name to either @SOTSOHockeyJJ or @SOTSOHockeyJoe using hashtag #sotsohpod.
3)  Must only enter once. (Anyone caught with multiple entries will be disqualified!)
4)  Must not be Joe Hayford, Andy Carlson, their spouses, or Justin Jelinek's spouse.

Prize will only be paid using Paypal or Google Wallet.  Creating one of these accounts is required to receive prize.
