    First Goal Of The Game 2018/19

    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 is 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 regular scorer scores the first goal, then your second candidate (dark horse) becomes available for the second goal of the game for a maximum of 4 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, Eberle, Cizikas, 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.

    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??

    I'm a little uncertain as to the ineligibles to start the season and I wonder if Pulock should be added to the list. What do you guys think?

    My opinion is that no defenseman in the modern era should ever be included as ineligible for dark horse.

    Can´t do that I’m afraid. Lee can’t be a darkhorse so you’ll have to pick somebody else for that. Check the list of players ineligible for darkhorse.

    Barzal scores as much as Nelson..so I don't think he should be ineligible

    It’s close between them but things will change if Nelson goes on a scoring tear again
