First Goal Contest – Kings at Coyotes, WCF Game 5


After dropping Game 4 in LA, the Kings will try to close out the Coyotes tonight in the blistering Arizon desert. Securing a fourth win in the Western Conference Finals would put them into the Stanley Cup Finals for only the second time in franchise history.

Although the Kings are expected to go with the same lineup for Game 5, there will be a few game-time decisions for the Coyotes – including the status of defenseman Adrian Aucoin. We’ll give you updates on the rosters from both sides during warm-ups at the arena (via twitter and facebook).

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 today. 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: Justin Williams

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.

SAMPLE ENTRY:

Phoenix (Vermette) at Los Angeles (Voynov)

Make sense? It should seem easy enough.

Good luck!
