Jeff Carter didn’t score in Friday night’s LA Kings win. However, he still holds the team lead with seven goals. With an assist in the game, Anze Kopitar now has the overall points lead with eight. And a friendly rivalry might be brewing between the two, something they talked about here.
Fear not though, they aren’t the only two players you can pick for Sunday’s First Goal Contest. Mike Richards and Kyle Clifford scored in the last game, plus you can choose any of the other forwards like Simon Gagne, Dustin Penner or Jarret Stoll. There’s also six defensemen if you like your offense from the blueline.
