MayorsManor First Goal Contest: Game 47 – Kings at Red Wings

Already dealing with a less than .500 record on the road, the Kings now have the unenviable task of playing in Detroit tonight without their captain (more on that below).
Additionally, the Kings are in a dog fight for the fourth seed, the only way they’ll secure home-ice advantage for the first round of the playoffs.
Despite […]

MayorsManor First Goal Contest: Game 46 – Kings at Wild

When the Kings and Wild met in Los Angeles just a few weeks ago it looked like a possible first round playoff match-up.  However, due to the highly volatile nature of the Western Conference standings – and a slumping Minnesota team that has gone only 3-6-1 over their last 10 games – each side is now fighting for something different.
While Zach […]

MayorsManor First Goal Contest: Game 45 – Stars at Kings

The Dallas Stars almost seem like a villain in a horror movie – just when you thought they were dead and gone, they pop back up to show you they’re still alive and causing havoc. Thought to be out of the playoff race just a few weeks ago, the Stars have won six of their […]

MayorsManor First Goal Contest: Game 44 – Blue Jackets at Kings

Somehow, the Columbus Blue Jackets often find a way to be part of an LA Kings story.  Last season there was the Jack Johnson for Jeff Carter trade and the famous clock issue at Staples Center.  This season there was the booing of Carter in Columbus.  But, tonight may be just as big – perhaps even bigger […]

MayorsManor First Goal Contest: Game 43 – Kings at Sharks

Tonight very well could be a preview of next month’s playoff match-up – Kings v Sharks, SoCal v NoCal.
In their two previous contests this year, the home team has won each time, with the Sharks earning a 4-3 victory in San Jose on March 14 and the Kings coming out on top 5-2 in Los Angeles a few nights later.  […]

MayorsManor First Goal Contest: Game 42 – Ducks at Kings

According to the Ducks’ twitter feed, they’re giving out thundersticks at their team store for fans traveling to Staples Center to take in tonight’s game with the Kings.  That should be…well, interesting.
At the very least, there are several other storylines heading into the match-up.  For example, this could be Teemu Selanne‘s final game played in downtown LA.  Also, can the […]

MayorsManor First Goal Contest: Game 41 – Avs at Kings

Although game 41 usually marks the halfway point of the NHL regular season, this time around – thanks to the lockout – it only means we’re that much closer to the end of the season.  Just eight games go.
As part of our push to the playoffs here on MayorsManor we’re running a contest where one lucky […]

MayorsManor First Goal Contest: Game 40 – Kings at Stars

For the third time in 11 games the Kings will meet up with the Stars tonight in Dallas.
However, it’s close to being the end of an era.  This will be the second to last meeting between the two clubs while they’re still in the same division.  Beginning next year, with realignment, they won’t see each […]

MayorsManor First Goal Contest: Game 38 – Oilers at Kings

We’re into the homestretch now, only six games remaining in the regular season at Staples Center.  And today brings the dreaded day game, where the Kings haven’t fared so well over the last few seasons.  Will today be different?
As part of our push to the playoffs here on MayorsManor we kicked off an all new contest […]
