MayorsManor First Goal Contest: Game 12 – Jackets at Kings

After 11 games played, Jeff Carter and Anze Kopitar are tied for the Kings points lead at seven each.  However, Carter’s six goals stand alone in the top of that category.

Both players talked about Carter’s strong start to the season and the brewing competitive rivalry in an article we posted here yesterday.

In his career, Kopitar has scored 13 goals in 23 career games vs. the Blue Jackets. And wouldn’t you know it, he scored against them last week in Columbus too.

But, they aren’t the only two players you can pick for tonight’s First Goal Contest.  The Kings roster is littered with guys who have scored plenty of goals themselves - including Simon Gagne, Dustin Penner and Jarret Stoll.

Then there’s the defensemen too, which will include the return of Jake Muzzin tonight, subbing for an injured Alec Martinez.

For anybody new to the scene here, this contest is easy to enter – simply place a comment below with the LAST NAME of the LA Kings player you think will score first vs. the Blue Jackets tonight (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 a Hockey Soda Energy prize pack featuring a t-shirt, a hockey puck and a 4-pack of Hockey Energy Soda (must be 16 years of age or older). Hockey Energy offers several different products, all designed to improve protein metabolism, reduces fatigue and appetite – plus sharpen perception. 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, here are the line combinations Darryl Sutter will be starting the game with…
