MayorsManor First Goal Contest: Game 23 – Flames at Kings


Tonight’s First Goal Contest will be your second of three chances to win an LA Kings Stanley Cup edition Fathead. So, if you want a 6-foot tall Drew Doughty or Jonathan Quick or Dustin Brown to put up on your wall, keep reading.

In the Kings’ last game – even though they lost – yes, Jeff Carter scored another goal.  Shocking, right?

So, he continues to lead the team in goals (16), while Anze Kopitar leads in points (20).  The interesting thing is Mike Richards has quietly worked his way into third in team points – something he talked about here yesterday.

Unconfirmed reports continue to say Drew Doughty will score sometime this season. But, believe what you want to believe.

Now on to the contest rules…

To get started, simply place a comment below with the LAST NAME of the LA Kings player you think will score first vs. the Flames (one entry per person).

One person will receive a free LA Kings Fathead – and that winner will be randomly drawn from anybody who placed a correct entry in one of three First Goal Contests (last Thursday vs. Dallas, tonight vs. Calgary and Monday’s game vs. Calgary).

If that is you, you’ll get to chose which LA Kings themed Fathead you want from this list of available items.

Now, here are the line combinations and defensive pairings that coach Darryl Sutter is expected to use:

FORWARDS

Dustin Brown – Anze Kopitar – Justin Williams

Dustin Penner – Mike Richards – Jeff Carter

Dwight King – Jarret Stoll – Trevor Lewis

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

Kelly Hrudey Jonathan Quick is expected to start in goal vs the Flames.

Good luck in the contest!
