First Goal Contest – Devils at Kings, StanleyCup Game 6

We’re back with another contest for Game 6…and we have a few other IMPORTANT NOTES down below, please read…

First off, there are two contests tonight – same as throughout the playoffs. You can play the traditional MayorsManor contest, where we’ll give away a signed puck…and/or play the tournament version, 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).

Just be sure to enter before the puck drops just after 5pm PST.

Three things to know about the contest:

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: Dustin Penner

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. If you missed it, the most updated leaderboard was posted here.

SAMPLE ENTRY: New Jersey (Kovalchuck) at Los Angeles (Doughty)

Make sense? It should seem easy enough.

Good luck!
