The Kings are 12-18-2 on the season, finding it difficult to find a rhythm on offense as Los Angeles only score 2.5 goals per game. The defense hasn’t always been there this season as the Kings on average give up 3.22 per game. Anze Kopitar leads the team in all major offensive categories with the most points, goals, and assists.
The Anaheim Ducks are coming off a win over a very good Minnesota Wild team that was playing well before running into Anaheim. However, the Ducks have only won two of their last five, but did just beat Los Angeles a week ago.
Anaheim have struggled to generate an elite offense as they are sixth worst in the NHL in goals scored, while only having a middle of the pack defense. The Ducks are 13-14-4 on the season and are second worst in the Pacific Division, just behind the Kings.
Los Angeles is 15-17 ATS this season

The Los Angeles Kings have been dreadful away, only winning two of their games away from the Staples Center. As close of a game as this likely will be, something like home field advantage will play a major factor in the result of this game. Luckily for Anaheim they have that advantage and it’s the reason I like them to win. I think the Kings get their revenge. Final Score Prediction, Los Angeles Kings win 4-2.
