Los Angeles Kings vs Seattle Kraken 01/15/2022 Betting Odds:
Los Angeles Kings
The seven-game homestand was a success overall for the Kings. The team recorded 5-2-0 during the stretch, which was capped by a 6-2 win over the Pittsburgh Penguins. LA knows that momentum is on their side. And with the opportunity to climb higher the win-loss ladder, the Kings are adamant to keep their foot on the gas pedal. With 43 points in 37 games, the Kings now trail second-placed Anaheim by two points and top-placed Vegas by five points. Taking down the Kraken seems to be a walk in the park for the Kings, but complacency is something the team must be wary of.
Players to watch: A. Kopitar C (G 11, A 22, PTS 33), A. Kempe RW (G 16, A 7, PTS 23), A. Iafallo RW (G 10, A 12, PTS 22).
The NHL’s newest expansion team is being hit by a harsh reality check. The Kraken suffered a 2-1 loss to the St. Louis Blues on Thursday – the team’s ninth straight loss. Seattle logs in just 24 points in 36 games, which is one of the worst records in the league thus far. But amidst the series of setbacks, the squad can still see a silver lining. Although they went empty against Colorado, Dallas and St. Louis in their last trip, the Kraken have shown great resolve, even leading at some point, against the said teams, who possess great records at home, respectively. It could be a long shot, but coming back home this weekend to host the Kings could be the perfect opportunity for the team to snap its skid.
Players to watch: J. Eberle RW (G 12, A 12, PTS 24), J. McCann C (G 15, A 8, PTS 23), Y. Gourde C (G 8, A 12, PTS 20).
