First Goal Contest – Kings at Devils, Stanley Cup Game 1

Are you ready?

After 82 regular season games and 14 more in the playoffs, it all comes down to this for the LA Kings. Waiting in the wings are the New Jersey Devils, for a winner take all 7-game series. The Stanley Cup Finals!

While you probably won’t be lifting the Cup with the series winner, you could win a cool prize. Throughout the playoffs we’ve been running two separate First Goal Contests and both will continue here in the Finals. There’s the traditional MayorsManor contest, run exclusively during Kings games, where recently we’ve been giving away a signed puck…and, the other, which is more like a tournament running through the end of the NHL playoffs. In the latter, we’re giving away a jersey or stick signed by the entire LA Kings team (the winner gets to choose their prize, as previously announced here).

So be sure to enter before the puck drops in a few hours.

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 Devils 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: Trevor Lewis

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

SAMPLE ENTRY:  Los Angeles (Brown) at New Jersey (Parise)

Make sense? It should seem easy enough.

Good luck!

Also, one quick reminder – MayorsManor is in New Jersey for all the action this week. So, check us out on twitter for live notes and quotes before, during and after the games.
