It’s all part of that crazy NHL schedule this year. No rest for the wicked. Another day, another game. In this case, Game 30 for the Kings, as they’ll take on the visiting Dallas Stars… and most of you know the drill by now, correctly guess who scores the first goal and you could win a prize.
Of course, Jeff Carter is in a bit of a drought and that has the natives restless. He’s only scored once in the last six games.
It’s probably even safe to take Drew Doughty again. He scored his first goal of the season in the Kings last game – and then admitted he had been lying a bit when claiming to not be worried about it for the past two months.
Oh, one more thing – as reported this morning, don’t take Tyler Toffoli. He’ll be a healthy scratch.
So, how do you play?
STEP 1 – Click here to check out all the cool stuff Hockey Soda Energy has to offer because they’re putting together a prize pack for the winner. Their full line of Hockey Energy products are designed to improve protein metabolism, reduce fatigue and appetite, plus sharpen perception.
STEP 2 – Place a comment below with the LAST NAME of the LA Kings player you think will score first vs. the Stars (one entry per person). We’ll pool all the correct entries and one person will be randomly selected to receive a free Hockey Soda Energy prize pack featuring a hockey puck and a 6-pack of Hockey Energy Soda (must be 16 years of age or older).
To get you started, here are the line combinations and defensive pairings that coach Darryl Sutter is expected to use:
Dustin Brown – Anze Kopitar – Justin Williams
Dustin Penner – Mike Richards – Jeff Carter
Dwight King – Jarret Stoll – Trevor Lewis
Kyle Clifford – Colin Fraser – Jordan Nolan
Jake Muzzin – Drew Doughty
Rob Scuderi – Slava Voynov
Alec Martinez – Keaton Ellerby
Healthy Scratches: Davis Drewiske, Brad Richardson and Tyler Toffoli.
Based upon who was first off the ice at morning skate today, it looks like Jonathan Quick will get the start in net.
Good luck in the contest!
