Colorado Avalanche vs Los Angeles Kings Prediction
Both the Avalanche and Kings are playing good hockey, but it’s the Kings who are at home and have a massive rest advantage. The Colorado Avalanche played last night and lost to the Ducks, while the Kings haven’t played a game since Wednesday. The Kings aggressive and explosive offensive attack should have success against possible tired legs of the Avs. Cheap price. Give me the Kings.
