    First Goal Of The Game 2019/20

    Well, it's that time of year again (hooray!) and as per normal here's this year's First Goal of the Game competition. I hope many of you will play this season as well - it's great fun and played for bragging rights only!

    The purpose of this game is simple: Guess the scorer of the Islanders first goal in every game throughout the season

    You get to name one regular scorer and one darkhorse candidate scorer or a shutout. Also, name if the goal was scored in even strength, on the powerplay or on the penalty kill for an additional point. Shutout is not an option for darkhorse, nor is having the same player both as regular and darkhorse scorer.

    Extra point: If your chosen darkhorse scores the first goal, then your regular scorer becomes available for the second goal of the game for a maximum of 2 additional points (scorer + correct play). Thus, the maximum number of points in one game is 6.

    If you accidentally post twice, only your first post counts.

    Scores are as follows:
    Regular scorer: 1 point
    Darkhorse scorer: 3 points
    Correct play (ES, PP or PK): 1 point
    Shutout: 10 points
    Second scorer (if first is correct): 1 point

    Players ineligible for darkhorse are:
    Lee, Nelson, Barzal,


    Players eligible or ineligible for darkhorse are subject to change throughout the season allowing for trades, injuries, loss/gain of form. Changes will only be made after consulting the participants and always check the OP for correct list of ineligibles.

    I'll do my best to update scores throughout the season but I appreciate any help others can provide. All choices must be in before the first drop of the puck.

    Best of luck to you all!

    Mods: can we have a sticky please??

    Please note the change in the additional point rule. Now your darkhorse has to score first for the chance of an additional point.

    First game is the Caps
