Los Angeles Kings vs New York Rangers 01/24/2022 Betting Odds:
Los Angeles Kings
Exactly two weeks ago, the Kings prevailed over the Rangers in LA. The teams will swap places on Monday with the now visiting Kings pegged as underdogs against the powerhouse Rangers. LA caught Kreider on an off night as the team outshot the Rangers, 39-23. Coach Todd McLellan hopes to have the same outcome at The MSG but he is also aware that it will be unconventional for the Rangers to have the same performance they had on Jan.10. For LA, they will just have to control what they control. Against a prolific contender, the Kings will have to double their effort on both ends.
Players to watch: A. Kopitar C (G 13, A 23, PTS 36), A. Iafallo RW (G 11, A 14, PTS 25), V. Arvidsson RW (G 9, A 15, PTS 24).

A win against the Kings will give the Rangers a breathing room, prompting the home fans to expect nothing but a 100% from their team.
