Kings vs. Blues Prediction

I’m on the Kings here. The fact of the matter all season has been that the Kings play their best hockey at home and the Blues have been wildly inconsistent. Getting the Blues as a home dog would be tempting because that’s where they play their best as well, but I just feel like the Kings are the better team here and I think the Kings have the edge to get the win on the road. Give me the Kings here.
