Los Angeles Kings
The Kings ride into tonight’s matchup flashing a pitiful 30-41-9 record that nets them a total of 69 points on the season. That lackluster tally ranks LA dead last in the Pacific Division and has already laid their playoff hopes to rest. So what do the Kings have to play for tonight? Other than their pride, there’s not really much on the table here. Nevertheless, NHL hockey betting players can still find plenty of value in this contest. At the present time the odds are pegging the Ducks as a decisive favorite here. All in all this was to be expected since the Kings have been downright awful this season.
Players to Watch: Anze Kopitar (21 G, 27 A, 58 PTS.), Dustin Brown (22 G, 27 A, 49 PTS), and Drew Doughty (8 G, 37 A, 45 PTS.).
The Ducks swim into tonight’s action sporting a 34-37-10 record that nets them 78 points on the season. That 78 point tally ranks Anaheim 6th overall in the Pacific and isn’t giving them much hope of a playoff run. Nevertheless, Anaheim should at the very least be able to get this win for their home fans tonight. Looking over the numbers however, it’s clear this could be a tight matchup. This is because the Kings rank 30th in scoring and 21st in defense while the Ducks rank 31st in scoring and 19th in defense.
Players to Watch: Ryan Getzlaf (14 G, 34 A, 48 PTS.), Adam Henrique (18 G, 24 A, 42 PTS.), and Rickard Rakell (18 G, 24 A, 42 PTS.).
