MayorsManor readers seemed to be on to something the other night when the majority of people felt that Jeff Carter was going to notch a goal against the Edmonton Oilers. And with Anze Kopitar having posted 38 points in 39 career games against the Coyotes prior to Saturday night’s contest in Phoenix, it’s no surprise he was such a popular choice for people this weekend.
Then there’s Kyle Clifford. Yes, he has points in every Kings game this year, but he’s only scored one goal. That’s taking nothing away from his strong start to the 2013 season, just noting that you’re trying to guess who will score the first goal tonight.
For anybody new to the scene here, this contest is simple. Place a comment below with the LAST NAME of the LA Kings player you think will score first vs. the Canucks (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.
