Anze Kopitar scored his first NHL goal in Anaheim against the Ducks on October 6, 2006. Since then, he’s posted 14 more goals in another 35 match-ups with the Ducks.
Jeff Carter, LA’s leading goal scorer at the moment, recorded his first two goals as a King vs. the Ducks last March.
And team captain Dustin Brown, who scored his first goal of the season on Thursday night, will be playing in his 50th game vs. the Ducks – tops among all NHL teams he’s faced.
But, will any of them score the first goal tonight?
