First Goal Contest – Kings v Blues and Capitals v Rangers

Kings Blues playoffs MayorsManorWe’re going to try something new here and see how it goes.

As most of you know, we’ve been running two separate First Goal Contests during the playoffs.  The first is the traditional MayorsManor contest run exclusively during Kings games, where recently we’ve been giving away a signed puck. The other, is more like a tournament that runs through the entire NHL playoffs – and at the end, we’re giving away a jersey or stick signed by the entire LA Kings team (the winner gets to choose their prize). The latter contest was originally announced here.

Rather than doing two separate articles today we’re going to combine them into one post, so please read carefully.

Three things to know:

1 – You can enter one contest or both by just leaving a single comment below.

2 – If you want to enter the Kings contest ONLY, simply leave a comment below with the LA player you think scores first vs. the Blues tonight. As always, multiple people can guess the same player. So, don’t worry about somebody else taking ‘your player.’ If that player scores first, we’ll pool all the winners together and randomly select one person to receive an autographed Dustin Brown puck.

SAMPLE ENTRY:  Mike Richards

3 – If you want to enter BOTH contests, no problem. Just leave a comment below and select one player from each team playing tonight. We’ll use your Kings guess to enter you in both contests.

SAMPLE ENTRY:

Washington (Ovechkin) at NY Rangers (Callahan)
Los Angeles (Brown) at St. Louis (Backes)

Make sense? It should seem easy enough.

Good luck!

ADDITIONAL MONDAY AFTERNOON NOTES:

- If you missed this weekend’s MayorsManor show, you should absolutely check out the free replay here. We covered the Blues vs Kings match-up from every possible angle and had a slew of guests on to help us – names like Luc Robitaille, Rob Blake, Ian Laperriere, Ted Irvine, Bob Miller, Helene Elliott, Dave Joseph, Dennis Bernstein, etc. Luc told us which Kings bottom six player he thinks is going to pot a goal in one of the first two games in STL. Blake gave his opinion on if Sean O’Donnell should have put that beating on Geoff Courtnall back in the ’98 playoff series. Lappy boldly predicted which team will win and in how many games. Plus, Irvine compared each team to a popular pro wrestler and threatened to beat coach Hitchcock in an arm wrestling match! I also offered my picks for all of the second round contests in the NHL. It’s a can’t miss show, so be sure to check it out.
