Saturday NHL action pits the Chicago Blackhawks against the Los Angeles Kings.

The Chicago Blackhawks avoided a three game skid with a 4-3 victory at Anaheim on Wednesday. Devin Shore and Carter Rowney scored first period goals for Anaheim with Troy Terry lighting the lamp in the third. Ryan Miller received the loss for the Ducks with four goals allowed on 35 shots.

Alex Debrincat tallied twice for the Blackhawks with Artem Anisimov and Patrick Kane finding the back of the net. Erik Gustafsson and Jonathan Toews supplied two assists each for Chicago and Corey Crawford recorded 29 saves to get the win.

The Los Angeles Kings saw their losing streak reach ten games with a 4-3 OT loss to visiting Dallas on Thursday. 

Anze Kopitar led Los Angeles with a pair of tallies with Brendan Leipsic also finding the back of the net. Kopitar also had an assist and Jonathan Quick gave up four goals on 33 shots to salvage a point for the Kings.

The Stars received goals from Tyler Sequin, Radek Faksa and Mattias Janmark in regulation with Roope Hintz netting the winner in overtime. Ben Lovejoy and Blake Comeau added two helpers each and Anton Khudobin allowed three goals on 30 shots to pick up the win for Dallas.

Blackhawks are 4-0 in their last 4 games playing on 2 days rest and Blackhawks are 9-1 in their last 10 vs. a team with a losing record and Blackhawks are 7-3 in their last 10 games following a win.
Kings are 1-4 in their last 5 vs. Western Conference and Kings are 1-10 in their last 11 overall and Kings are 0-4 in their last 4 home games.

Blackhawks are 1-4 in the last 5 meetings in Los Angeles and under is 5-1-3 in the last 9 meetings and over is 6-1-4 in the last 11 meetings in Los Angeles.

The under has been money in this matchup but Chicago has played in 13 straight overs and the over has hit in eight of ten for the Kings so over I go…

I have been a sports fan since I was old enough to pick up a ball and have always been drawn to competition. I don't participate in sporting events any longer but I do like to provide my opinion on games and writing gives me that outlet. I won't always be right but I always put 100% in to every article I do whether it's the World Series or an 0-10 college football team. Mitch shares that same passion and allows me to express myself in my own way.
