MayorsManor First Goal Contest: Game 32 – Kings at Blackhawks

Perhaps the third time will be a charm.

Due to the Kings’ lack of scoring, we haven’t had a winner in our First Goal Contest in back-to-back games now.  But, with the Kings in Chicago tonight, let’s give it another go.

More on that in a minute though. First, some required reading:

–  Word Association: Doughty and the Kings take on the Blackhawks

–  Trade Talk:  One-on-One interview with Stars’ Morrow

–  Anze Kopitar on the playoff race and potential trades

Now, on to the contest…

Who do you think will score first for the Kings tonight?  Jeff Carter scored just once in his last eight games. Maybe you’re thinking Dustin Brown. Perhaps Mike Richards seems like a good option.  What about Anze Kopitar or Drew Doughty?  It could be Keaton Ellerby.

To call your shot now, here’s what you need to do…

STEP 1 – Click here to check out all the cool stuff Hockey Soda Energy has to offer because they’re putting together a prize pack for the winner. Their full line of Hockey Energy products are designed to improve protein metabolism, reduce fatigue and appetite, plus sharpen perception.

STEP 2 – Place a comment below with the LAST NAME of the LA Kings player you think will score first vs. the Blackhawks (one entry per person). We’ll pool all the correct entries and one person will be randomly selected to receive a free Hockey Soda Energy prize pack featuring a hockey puck and a 6-pack of Hockey Energy Soda (must be 16 years of age or older).

To get you started, here are the line combinations and D-pairings that coach Darryl Sutter is expected to use:

FORWARDS

Dustin Brown – Anze Kopitar – Jeff Carter

Justin Williams – Mike Richards –– Tyler Toffoli

Dwight King – Jarret Stoll – Trevor Lewis

Kyle Clifford – Colin Fraser – Jordan Nolan

DEFENSE

Jake Muzzin – Drew Doughty

Rob Scuderi – Slava Voynov

Alec Martinez – Keaton Ellerby

Healthy Scratches: Davis Drewiske, Dustin Penner and Brad Richardson

Based upon who was first off the ice at the morning skate, Jonathan Quick will likely get the start in net.

Good luck in the contest!
