Kings at Coyotes: What Bettors Need to Know
By Covers.com

Los Angeles Kings at Phoenix Coyotes (+110, 4.5)

THE STORY:
The Los Angeles Kings have built an impressive playoff run thanks to strong contributions from just about everyone - and Game 1 of the Western Conference finals was no exception. Dwight King's first career two-goal game paced the Kings to victory in the opener, and they'll look to forge a two-game lead as they visit the Phoenix Coyotes on Tuesday night. Phoenix was thoroughly outplayed in Game 1, surrendering 47 shots in a continuation of a disturbing post-season trend.

ABOUT THE KINGS: Los Angeles is doing just about everything right so far, compiling a 9-1 playoff record - including a 6-0 mark away from the Staples Center. Penalty killing has been the club's biggest strength, operating at a 93 percent clip while posting four shorthanded goals. The other side of the special teams equation has been the Kings' only weakness, with the power play scoring just four times in 51 opportunities. Despite the solid play to date, Kings netminder Jonathan Quick believes the team has room for improvement. "We're not where we want to be," he said. We've got goals here in this locker room."

ABOUT THE COYOTES: Phoenix struggled in the opener of its second-round series with Nashville but escaped with a 4-3 win. The Coyotes weren't as fortunate against a relentless Kings team that peppered netminder Mike Smith with 34 shots over the first two periods. For a team already allowing more than 36 shots per game in the postseason, Sunday's puck barrage was alarming. "We've got to be a lot better than that," said captain Shane Doan, playing in the final four for the first time in his career. "This is the conference playoffs. We didn't play well enough for a regular-season game."

TRENDS:

- Kings are 5-0 in their last five games as a road underdog.
- Under is 11-4-3 in Coyotes last 18 overall.
- Kings are 7-3 in the last 10 meetings.

OVERTIME:

1. The Kings are 8-6 all-time when winning Game 1 of a series.

2. Los Angeles killed off all five Phoenix power plays in Game 1 and has extinguished 24 straight chances overall.

3. Coyotes D Derek Morris, who had a goal and an assist in the opener, has five points in 12 playoff games after recording just 11 points in 59 regular-season contests.
