Kings vs Red Wings first goal contest on new website

Once again, the Kings will face a banged up Detroit team tonight – they’re still playing without Nicklas Lidstrom, Pavel Datsyuk, Todd Bertuzzi and a few others.  However, Jimmy Howard is expected to make his return in goal for the Red Wings.

Still, as noted by Matt Greene prior to last week’s game at Joe Louis Arena, it’s never easy getting points againt that team. And the Kings are in desparate need of two points.

As announced earlier today on MayorsManor.com, we’ll be running our First Goal contest again tonight, only with a slightly different twist.

If you’d like to enter, simply leave a comment below with the LA player you think will score first vs. the Red Wings.

All correct answers will be pooled together and one random winner will be awarded a free pair of tickets to an upcoming Kings home game.

To help you with your selection, here a few stats that may come in handy…

– Dustin Brown has 5 goals vs Detroit in 27 career games
– Anze Kopitar has 6 goals in 22 games
– Justin Williams has 3 goals in 15 games
– Mike Richards has 2 goals in 7 games
– Jeff Carter has 1 goal in 5 games
– Jarret Stoll has 4 goals in 29 games
– Drew Doughty has 0 goals in 14 games

Of course, feel free to take Colin Fraser, Dwight King, Wilie Mitchell or any of the other Kings players. Just stay clear of Kevin Westgarth, Brad Richardson and Davis Drewiske because they’re expected to be healthy scratches from tonight’s game.

If you’re really daring, take Jonathan Quick, he’ll be in net.

Good luck!

  119. Thanks to all who entered. The winner was ‘Lynn’ (see above), who correctly selected Justin Williams for the Kings first goal last night. She has been notified via email. If you didn’t win, please try again on Friday – we’ll have another pair of tickets to give away!

    • Anthony Flores says:

      Has anyone ever won more than once? Our you like to pass the wealth to everyone. How do you choose the winner? Plus I thought you ask to pick a scorer and why? Because the person who won just put a name..just curious. Thanks

  120. Anthony – don’t totally understand your questions. Here’s an attempt to answer though…Yes, last season somebody won more than once. The winners are chosen at random from all correct entries. If you win, you can’t win again for 30 days. You do need to pick the person who will score the first goal for the Kings. The person who won above did properly enter the contest with the correct guess. Hope that answers all of your questions.
