MayorsManor First Goal Contest: GAME 2 – Kings at Avalanche

Well, nobody picked Rob Scuderi for the Kings first goal in their home opener on Saturday afternoon – but we still wanted to give the prize away.  So, for one of the few times in history, we rolled the contest over to the second goal.

Low and behold, it was Jordan Nolan who scored.  Another player that wasn’t selected by anybody who submitted a guess beforehand.

That’s all good news for you though – because the poster is still up for grabs!

For anybody new to the scene here, this contest is simple. Place a comment below with the LA Kings player you think will score first in tonight’s game vs. the Colorado Avalanche (one entry per person). We’ll take all of the correct entries and pool them together. From that group, one random winner will get a prize.

Just like last time, you’re playing for the poster shown the left. It comes to us from the team at – since 1998 they’ve been one of the top online hockey poster sites in the world and they have tons of great Kings items available and ready to ship.  After you enter the MayorsManor First Goal Contest, be sure to head over to their site and check out all the good stuff they offer.

Now, to help you with your selection today, these are the line combinations coach Darryl Sutter will likely start the game with…

Dustin Brown – Anze Kopitar – Justin Williams

Dustin Penner – Mike Richards – Jeff Carter

Dwight King – Jarret Stoll – Trevor Lewis

Kyle Clifford – Colin Fraser – Jordan Nolan

If you like defenseman, they’ll probably be paired up like this…

Rob Scuderi – Drew Doughty

Alec Martinez – Slava Voynov

Davis Drewiske – Jake Muzzin

Healthy Scratches:  Andrew Bodnarchuk, Simon Gagne and Brad Richardson.

If you’re looking for an edge here, you may want to read this article about the changes being made to the Kings power play tonight.

Good luck!
