Contest: First Goal – Rangers v Caps, game seven

After the NHL took a few days off, the action returns tonight with another game seven!

Along with the play on the ice, our special edition of the First Goal Contest will be resuming in a few hours too (original article here). As previously announced, one lucky reader is going to win their choice of a team signed LA Kings stick or jersey at the end of the playoffs! If you’re interested, it’s pretty simple to play – each morning we’ll post the games scheduled for that particular day and you need to guess who will score the first goal in each game. To make things a little easier, you can even take a player from BOTH teams. For example, here’s what an entry would look like for tonight’s game:

Washington (Carlson) at NY Rangers (Richards)

Please note that the maximum number of correct entries today would be one, as you’re trying to guess the first goal in the game – not for each team.

Good luck!
