It's still early, but the Anaheim Ducks look a lot like the team from last year and the goaltending has been extremely disappointing up to this point. The Los Angeles Kings have been a bit better than expected and they play their best hockey at home dating back to last season. The Ducks are a tough team to back right now. I'll lay the reasonable price with the Kings on their home ice.
