MayorsManor First Goal Contest: Game 5 – Canucks at Kings

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.

Today you’re playing for the t-shirt to the left. It comes to us from longtime MayorsManor sponsor – they have a full selection of hats, shirts and sweatshirts. So, 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/entry/guess, these are the expected line combinations LA coach Darryl Sutter will be starting the game with…

Dustin Brown – Anze Kopitar – Justin Williams

Kyle Clifford – Mike Richards – Jeff Carter

Dwight King – Jarret Stoll – Trevor Lewis

Simon Gagne – Colin Fraser – Jordan Nolan

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

Rob Scuderi – Drew Doughty

Alec Martinez – Slava Voynov

Davis Drewiske – Jake Muzzin

Healthy Scratches: Andrew Bodnarchuk, Dustin Penner and Brad Richardson

For some Kings-Canucks pregame primers, be sure to check out today’s MayorsManor Live show with former player Ray Ferraro (who also told some funny stories about Ian Laperriere and Willie Mitchell).  The audio is streaming here…and we have some notes and quotes from this morning’s pre-game skate here.

Good luck!
