Sunday NHL action features the Detroit Red Wings visiting the Los Angeles Kings.

The Detroit Red Wings never got their offense going in a 3-2 overtime defeat at the hands of visiting Columbus. Detroit received second period tallies from Dennis Cholowski and Tyler Bertuzzi on the power play with both Dylan Larkin and Gustav Nyquist posting two assists each.

The Blue Jackets received a first period tally from Cam Atkinson with the man advantage while Josh Anderson scored in the second. Artemi Panarin scored 2:11 in to overtime while also adding an assist.

Joonas Korpisalo picked up the in for Columbus with two goals allowed on 20 shots while Jimmy Howard was charged with all three goals on 39 shots.

The Los Angeles Kings are hoping for more offensive punch this season and didn’t find it in a 3-2, overtime loss to visiting San Jose on Friday. Los Angeles received scoring from Anze Kopitar in the first and Tyler Toffoli in the second with Jonathan Quick allowing all three goals on 33 shots.

The Sharks scored twice in the opening period with Timo Meier and Evander Kane lighting the lamp for a 2-0 lead. Kevin LeBlanc won it for the Sharks at 2:54 of OT while Martin Jones recorded 19 saves.

Over is 6-0-1 in Red Wings last 7 after scoring 2 goals or less in their previous game and Red Wings are 0-7 in their last 7 when their opponent scores 2 goals or less in their previous game and over is 5-0-1 in Red Wings last 6 road games. Kings are 0-6 in their last 6 overall and Kings are 0-4 in their last 4 games playing on 1 days rest and Kings are 0-4 in their last 4 home games. Under is 3-0-1 in the last 4 meetings and under is 5-1 in the last 6 meetings in Los Angeles and home team is 12-4 in the last 16 meetings. 

The Kings should be able to keep the Red Wings from lighting up the scoreboard so I’ll back them…

Pick:
LA Kings -1

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.
