MayorsManor First Goal Contest: Game 21 – Blues at Kings

MayorsManor Ontario Reign ECHLThat’s right – we have another pair of Ontario Reign tickets up for grabs in tonight’s First Goal Contest…or should we say, the Jeff Carter Contest.

Seriously, this is getting ridiculous.

With a natural hat trick on Monday, he now has 14 goals on the season – more than double any other player on the roster.

And guess what… when the Blues and Kings met up in St. Louis last month, who do you think scored the first goal in that game?

Don’t bother looking it up – yes, it was Carter.

Of course the Kings do feature other guys known to put the puck in the net on occasion – names like Dustin Brown, Anze Kopitar and Mike Richards.  Plus, there have been strong rumors that Drew Doughty will score sometime this season. Unconfirmed.

Whichever player scores first tonight for LA, back that guy and you’ll have a shot at winning a prize from MayorsManor.

To enter tonight’s First Goal Contest, simply place a comment below with the LAST NAME of the LA Kings player you think will score first vs. the Blues (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 free pair of tickets to this Wednesday’s game in Ontario between the Reign and Las Vegas Wranglers.

Here are the line combinations and defensive pairings that coach Darryl Sutter is expected to use…

FORWARDS

Dustin Brown – Anze Kopitar – Justin Williams

Trevor Lewis – Mike Richards – Jeff Carter

Dustin Penner – Jarret Stoll – Dwight King

Kyle Clifford – Colin Fraser – Jordan Nolan

DEFENSE

Jake Muzzin – Drew Doughty

Rob Scuderi – Slava Voynov

Alec Martinez – Keaton Ellerby

Healthy Scratches: Davis Drewiske and Brad Richardson

Jonathan Bernier, who was disappointed in not earning a shutout on Monday, is expected to start in goal again.

Good luck in the contest!
