MayorsManor First Goal Contest: Game 4 – Kings at Coyotes

In the three games played so far this season the Kings have scored four goals and left wing Kyle Clifford has had a hand in all of them – with one goal and three assists.

Forwards Jordan Nolan and Jeff Carer, along with defenseman Rob Scuderi, are the only other Los Angeles players to find the back of the net here in the early going of the 2013 season.

Guess which Kings player will light the lamp first in Phoenix later today and you could win a great prize.

Place a comment below with the LAST NAME of the LA Kings player you think will score first in tonight’s game vs. the Coyotes (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.
