MayorsManor First Goal Contest: Game 33 – Kings at Blues

Coning off their big win in Chicago on Monday night, the Kings will now try to ramp things back up in St. Louis after a day off following their trip to the White House.

Offensively, the Kings big guns provided some punch against the Blackhawks, including goals from Dustin Brown and Anze Kopitar.

Jeff Carter continues to lead the team with 18 goals, however he’s found the back of the net just once in his last nine games.

Rookie Tyler Toffoli, who also scored on Monday, will be back in the line-up again tonight – as Dustin Penner joins fellow forward Brad Richardson on the sidelines.

If you can guess who will score first for the Kings in Chicago, you could win yourself some free food.

So, how do you play?  Three easy steps…
