    Pageau was originally credited with a 5th shot when scoring his ENG at the end of the game. For some reason NHL.com took that shot away and is showing only 4 shots for Pageau. Natural Stat Trick and Evolving Hockey which both scrape NHL.com’s play-by-play data show Pageau with 5 shots.

    I emailed DraftKings about the issue before the contest’s had been closed out for the night. They emailed me back one response saying Pageau had only 4 shots according to NHL.com, I’ve emailed them multiple follow ups stating that this is incorrect with no response back.

    This bumped me from 1st and $10,000, to 6th and only $200… What the hell do I do here?

    They likely took away a shot earlier in the game and. You can scrape the play by play and try and find out. That’s a bad beat but DK won’t budge. Sorry buddy

    NHL.com is showing 4 shots..

    STATS is as well. Does DK still use STATS for it’s live scoring?

    Guys get added stats, stats taken away. How it goes.

    Stats get corrected and reviewed throughout the game in all sports.

    At some point they took a shot away from him. Probably from earlier in the game like Volkster said. Stat corrections suck when they hurt you, but they’re phenomenal when they help you. Just the way it goes. The reality is though that he never had 5 shots, if the statisticians said he didn’t. You were never really in 1st rightfully, and the numbers are the numbers. So what you got stuck with was false belief, which sucks.

    NHL play-by-play data is still showing 4 shots and then his ENG. Does NHL not update their play-by-play data after making stat corrections?

    I’m not sure if they use STATS for live scoring, I’m pretty sure they did at some point in the past. The only thing they referenced in their emails was NHL.com’s boxcore, and that they had “confirmed” it, w/e that means

    Unfortunately DK goes by whatever the stats provider final box score is for the sake of integrity/fairness. They can’t arbitrarily make changes at their descretion. Its a terrible bad beat.

    From the NHL Contest Rules page found at https://www.draftkings.com/help/rules/1:

    DraftKings uses official NFL statistics and only includes statistics from games NFL deems to be official. If the NFL declares a game “suspended” then the statistics generated before the game is suspended will count in Game Sets containing said game. Any statistics generated on a later date when the game resumes will not be included.

    On our Rules and Scoring Overview found at https://www.draftkings.com/help/rules:

    On occasion, official scorers may issue a stat-correction after games have ended and the official scoring validation process has completed. These corrections are rare, but can occur days after a game is played. Therefore, any changes to official scoring that occur after contests have been finalized will not impact those finalized contests. Conversely, if a correction needs to be made after contests are finalized due to a bug with the data feed or the finalization process, while extremely rare, the finalization process (including payment) may be reversed and redone correctly.

    Note: The official scoring validation process is solely to ensure that DraftKings contest results are determined based on official scoring. Delays during this process may occur as a result of data collection or other technical difficulties. DraftKings will not attempt to make judgements on scoring rulings.

    We hope the quotes from our rules provide further clarification. If you disagree with the official NFL stats, you are certainly allowed to have that opinion – however it is outside of our scope, there is nothing we can do on our end to change the scoring choices of the league. We always use the league as the final arbiter of statistics and reconcile any differences once the game is complete and the official stats have been posted.
