We have the totals in.....
Featuring over 55 separate users from across SB Nation, there were a grand total of 2,992 comments made during last night's fundraiser. Not quite the 4,000 comment goal we were shooting for, but one hell of a success nonetheless. The original pledge was for $0.05 for each comment up to 4k; since it's for a good cause and since everyone was so generous last night, Defending Big D will still donate the full amount as if we had hit the goal anyways.
That means, with everything tallied, our total donation for the NHL/UNICEF Initiative in support of Haiti Relief is:
Not an incredible sum by any means, but we're making a difference. We also had one hell of a time chatting with other hockey fans from around SB Nation, making new friends and it was perhaps the most fun I have ever had in a game thread.
I'd like to personally thank Bryan Reynolds, Teri Goodwin, Kristina Klopp, Brad Gardner and an anonymous philanthropist for their personal donations. If you'd like to make a donation in support of Haiti relief, you have a couple of options:

I'd also like to thank everyone for staying up late and working all the way to the 11:59 deadline, coming up with discussion topics on anything and everything. It was a blast.
For the comment tally, and a look at who commented the most follow the jump.
Please note: Our tally software can only count five threads at once. Therefore the game threads and post-game thread were counted separately.
