Kings at Sharks season finale notes and First Goal Contest

Kings Sharks MayorsManorWill this game be for the Pacific Division title or the seventh seed in the Western Conference? That’s still to be decided at the time of this post.

Here’s the deal…

At 5pm PST the Coyotes are playing the Wild in Minnesota. If Phoenix wins that game, they’ll also be crowned the division champs and the LA/SJ winner will be seventh. If Phoenix gets one point (losing in OT or shootout), the Kings could still win the division and take third in the West – if they defeat the Sharks in regulation or overtime. In that scenario, a shootout win by LA would still give the division to Phoenix.

If Phoenix loses in regulation, it would create the ultimate showdown, where the winner of the Kings-Sharks game will claim the Pacific Division Championship.

Regardless of what happens in the Phoenix-Minnesota game though, MayorsManor will bring you the final First Goal Contest of the regular season in conjunction with the game in San Jose. Like the other night, you’ll be playing for a MayorsManor t-shirt. Entering is easy, simply leave a comment below with the LA player you think will score first vs. the Sharks. All correct answers will be pooled together and one random winner will be awarded the shirt.

To help you with your selection, the following stats may come in handy…

– Dustin Brown has 12 goals in 48 career games vs San Jose

Anze Kopitar has 12 goals in 38 career games

– Justin Williams has 3 goals in 19 career games

Mike Richards has 4 goals in 12 career games

– Jarret Stoll has 5 goals in 36 career games

Brad Richardson has 0 goals in 24 career games

– Drew Doughty has 1 goal in 23 career games

Alec Martinez scored the first goal when the two teams met in LA on Thursday night. Feel free to take him or any other Kings player tonight – just remember, Kevin Westgarth and Davis Drewiske are scheduled to be healthy scratches again.

Good luck!
