Game three of the Western Conference Finals is set to kick off later tonight in Los Angeles. The Kings are not expected to make any line-up changes, as Colin Fraser is still in Canada attending to a private family matter. Meanwhile, the Coyotes will need replace the suspended Martin Hanzal – most likely with Marc-Antoine Pouliot. Also still in question for Phoenix is the status of defenseman Adrian Aucoin. We’ll give you updates on the rosters from both sides following the morning skates at Staples in just a few hours.
Now, if you want to win a signed Dustin Brown puck or other great prizes, here’s some details for you… we’ve been running two separate First Goal Contests during the playoffs… there’s the traditional MayorsManor contest run exclusively during Kings games, where recently we’ve been giving away a signed puck…and, the other, which is more like a tournament running through the end of the NHL playoffs. In the latter, we’re giving away a jersey or stick signed by the entire LA Kings team (the winner gets to choose their prize, as previously announced here).
For the Western Conference Finals, we’re combining both contests into one post…
Three things to know:
1 – You can enter ONE contest or BOTH by just leaving a single comment below.
2 – If you want to enter the Kings contest ONLY, simply leave a comment below with the LA player you think scores first vs. the Coyotes tonight. As always, multiple people can guess the same player. So, don’t worry about somebody else taking ‘your player.’ If that player scores first, we’ll pool all the winners together and randomly select one person to receive an autographed Dustin Brown puck.
SAMPLE ENTRY: Mike Richards
3 – If you want to enter BOTH contests, no problem. Just leave a comment below and select one player from each team playing today. We’ll use your Kings guess to enter you in both contests.
Phoenix (Whitney) at Los Angeles (Penner)
Make sense? It should seem easy enough.
And one more thing – I was a special guest on the latest edition of All The Kings Men podcast, we recapped game two of the Western Conference Finals and cover all the pre-game stories heading into game three. You can listen to the show using the player below:
