First Goal Game – LA Kings players submit their guesses

For the past few seasons we’ve hosted a ‘First Goal Game’ contest on twitter and facebook for LA Kings home and road games. Each night, one random winner is selected from all correct entries and a prize is awarded – things like t-shirts, game tickets, etc.

At practice yesterday we asked a few of the Kings players who they would pick in the first goal contest. The question was simple enough – looking around the room, yourself included, which player will score first vs. the Coyotes?

Here’s what a few guys had to say…

Drew Doughty – Stolly

Mike RichardsKopitar

Dustin Brown – Doughty

Dustin Penner(after thinking about it for a few seconds…) “I think I’m going to get the first one.”

Now…who do you think scores first vs. Phoenix tonight?

If it helps you at all, here some stats for a few of the forwards and defensemen. First is the number of goals they have, followed by the number of career games they’ve played against the Coyotes.

Brown 10 goals in 45 games, Doughty four in 19, Jack Johnson two in 26, Kopitar 10 in 36, Penner 12 in 29, Richards three in eight, Jarret Stoll nine in 33 and Justin Williams three in 25.

Submit your answer below and you could win a pair of tickets to the Kings’ Meet the Players Party being held next week.

Entering is easy, either log in via the website or use your facebook profile.

Good luck!
