Contest: First Goal – NHL playoff games 4/19/2012

NHL playoffs 2012Would you like to win a stick or jersey signed by the entire LA Kings team?  Well, here’s your chance…

As announced over the weekend, we’ll be running a playoff-long First Goal Contest.

This one is slightly different than the contest we run exclusively during Kings games, so please READ CAREFULLY.

The traditional MayorsManor First Goal Contest will continue – where throughout LA’s first round series vs. Vancouver, if you correctly guess the Kings player who scores first, you could win an autographed puck from Dustin Brown. Entries for that contest are accepted in a different article (see yesterday’s contest here as an example).

Below, you’ll find all the information on our ongoing PLAYOFF contest:

This edition of the First Goal Game will run through the remainder of the NHL Playoffs and here’s how this one works… Each morning we’ll post the games scheduled for that particular day. Your job is to guess who will score the first goal in each game, not for each team. However, to make things a little easier, you can take a player from BOTH teams.

For example, here’s what an entry would look like for the games scheduled today, Thursday 4/19/2012:

Florida (Sturm) at New Jersey (Parise)
Boston (Chara) at Washington (Ovechkin)
Phoenix (Whitney) at Chicago (Kane)
St. Louis (Backes) at San Jose (Thornton)

The maximum number of correct entries today would be four, one for each game. Again, you’re trying to pick the first goal in the GAME.

We’ll track the number of correct entries and post a weekly leader board (note: to date, people have guessed a few correctly, but nobody has jumped out to a huge lead – so, you still have a great chance to win). The MayorsManor reader with the most correct submissions at the end of the NHL playoffs will win their choice of an LA Kings team signed jersey or stick!

Enter below to get started now. Yesterday’s entries can be viewed here.

NOTE: This new contest will not take the place of the usual contest run exclusively during LA Kings games. Those will continue separately.
