    Default Stumped by Math

    I'm trying to figure this one out and struggling to do so.
    From Rotoworld:

    Mikael Backlund - C - Flames

    Mikael Backlund had an assist in the Flames' 4-3 overtime win against Los Angeles on Wednesday.
    That extended Backlund's point streak to four games. He has two goals and three points in four contests this season.

    LOL... I'm not going to tell you how much time I've spent actually trying to make sense of this. But it's probably more than 10 minutes (see posting times for another similar equation)

    Looks like an accounting form of math... 1 + 1 = whatever you want it to be

    He may not have eaten an apple every day for four days but there is a chance that he's eaten apple every day. #fractionsarefun
