First Goal Contest – Devils at Kings, Stanley Cup Game 3

For the first time in 19 years, a Stanley Cup Final game will be played in Los Angeles. All the fun begins tonight at 5pm with Wayne Gretzky scheduled to drop the ceremonial puck. And Simon Gagne is expected to replace Brad Richardson in the Kings line-up tonight. But, first…

Take your chance at a cool prize in one of our two First Goal Contests. 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: Justin Williams

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

Make sense? It should seem easy enough.

Good luck!
