NHL action comes to the Staples Center where the Los Angeles Kings host the Anaheim Ducks.

The Anaheim Ducks might be playing a bit better then earlier in the season but the team still needs keep winning and move up the Pacific standings for the postseason. Anaheim has followed a three game winning streak with back to back defeats after a 3-2 loss at the Calgary Flames. Jacob Silfverberg and Ryan Getzlaf supplied the Ducks goals with John Gibson stopping 28 shots in defeat.

Los Angeles Kings vs. Anaheim Ducks - 1/13/18 NHL Pick, Odds, and Prediction

USA TODAY Sports

The Flames scored twice in the first off the sticks of Micheal Ferland and Mark Giordano for a lead that lasted until Anaheim scored two times in the third for a 2-2 game. Dougie Hamilton lit the lamp with just 16 seconds remaining in regulation to make a winner of Mike Smith and his 27 saves.

The Los Angeles Kings will be looking to regroup at the defensive side of the ice to avoid a three game skid and maintain the second spot in the Pacific. Los Angeles has dropped consecutive 4-3 decisions after Nashville knocked them off a week ago. The Kings scoring came off the sticks of Adrian Kempe, Trevor Lewis and Tyler Toffoli.

The Predators offense received a pair of tallies off the stick Austin Watson with Roman Josi and Scott Hartnell joining the scoring column. PK Subban added a pair of helpers for Nashville to make the 26 stops of Pekka Rinne a winner while Jonathan Quick took the loss with four goals allowed on 20 shots.

Under is 4-0 in Ducks last 4 road games and Ducks are 1-5 in their last 6 Saturday games and under is 5-1 in Ducks last 6 vs. Pacific. Kings are 7-1 in their last 8 vs. a team with a losing record and under is 7-2-1 in Kings last 10 vs. Pacific and under is 9-3 in Kings last 12 vs. a team with a losing record. Home team is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings and under is 17-6-4 in the last 27 meetings in Los Angeles. 

The problem in backing Los Angeles is the long layoff but I’m going with them pending goalie confirmation…
