First Goal Contest – Flyers v Devils and Blues v LA Kings

Kings Blues playoffs MayorsManorBased upon reader reaction a few days ago, it looks like we’re safe to combine both editions of the First Goal Contest into a single post on days when the Kings play.

If you’re already confused though, here’s the deal – 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).

So, rather than doing two separate articles today combining things into one post, so please read carefully.

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 Blues 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: Jeff Carter

3 – If you want to enter BOTH contests, no problem. Just leave a comment below and select one player from each team playing tonight. We’ll use your Kings guess to enter you in both contests.

SAMPLE ENTRY:

Philadelphia (Timonen) at New Jersey (Harrold)
St. Louis (Oshie) at Los Angeles (Doughty)

Make sense? It should seem easy enough.

Good luck!

– Finally, if you just can’t get enough Kings v Blues talk and you happened to miss last weekend’s MayorsManor show, you should absolutely check out the free replay here. We covered the two teams and their history from every possible angle. Plus, we had a slew of guests on to help us – names like Luc Robitaille, Rob Blake, Ian Laperriere, Ted Irvine, Bob Miller, etc. There was discussion about Jamie Storr, Sean O’Donnell and Geoff Courtnall in the ’98 playoff series, plus predictions by nearly every guest on who would win this series, score in the series, who could beat Ken Hitchcock in an arm wrestling match and more! I also offered my picks for all of the second round contests in the NHL. It’s a can’t miss show, so be sure to check it out.
