MayorsManor First Goal Contest: Game 19 – Kings at Canucks

Yes, Jeff Carter has scored in five straight games – but, Justin Williams didn’t go with the Kings’ leading goal scorer when we asked who will get the first marker vs. Vancouver tonight.
“Me! I’d like to just get one,” he said. “So, I’m going to say me.”
Dwight King has other ideas. He’s been ‘working’ (as Darryl Sutter [...]

MayorsManor First Goal Contest: Game 18 – Red Wings at Kings

If you’re going to play the odds tonight, Jeff Carter may be your guy.  Then again, maybe his hot streak will come to an end.  Same could be said for Dustin Brown.
On the flip side, maybe this is the night Anze Kopitar goes off and has four points.
But, they aren’t the only players you can pick for tonight’s [...]

MayorsManor First Goal Contest: Game 17 – Ducks at Kings

Later tonight at Staples Center the Kings and Ducks will meet up for the second time this season. Last time was a wild affair, where Jonathan Bernier was thrust into action, replacing Jonathan Quick early in the first period.  LA went on to lose that game by a final score of 7-4 and also dropped two [...]

MayorsManor First Goal Contest: Game 15 – Kings at Flames

It’s our third contest in four days. Are you ready for it?
Jeff Carter scored again on Tuesday night and continues to lead the Kings in that department with seven goals on the season. But, think fast – who leads the team in points?
If you guessed Mike Richards or Anze Kopitar, you were correct.  They both have nine points, recording the same four [...]

It’s another day game on Sunday, so we’re posting this contest a little sooner than usual to give everybody proper time to place their entry.

In his career, Kopitar has scored 13 goals [...]

MayorsManor First Goal Contest: Game 11 – Kings at Blues

He’s back – after sitting out the last three Kings games, coach Darryl Sutter is expected to give Dustin Penner another start tonight.
In three games this season, the 6-foot-4 left wing has averaged about 11 minutes of ice time, but has yet to record a shot on goal or point.
However, in four post-season games vs. St. Louis last year, Penner [...]

MayorsManor First Goal Contest: Game 10 – Kings at Red Wings
