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

Los Angeles Kings at Phoenix Coyotes (115, 4.5)

THE STORY:
With the Phoenix Coyotes facing an unceremonious sweep in the Western Conference finals, their captain stepped up to extend their season by at least two more days. With Shane Doan's two-goal performance leading Phoenix to its first win of the series, the Coyotes look to defend home ice as they entertain the Los Angeles Kings in Game 5 on Tuesday night. Netminder Mike Smith was sharp in the Game 4 victory and will need to be just as good if the Coyotes plan on returning to L.A.

ABOUT THE KINGS: Los Angeles is coming off a loss for just the second time this postseason, but the club doesn't seem overly concerned. That may be due, at least in part, to the fact that the Kings are 7-0 on the road in the Stanley Cup playoffs. Los Angeles had hoped to close things out Sunday afternoon but was stymied by Smith, who turned aside 36 shots. "He's been a great goalie for them all year," said Kings forward Dustin Penner. "As forwards, we've got to do something different, or a little bit better, to make him work harder, and not just be satisfied with getting the puck on net."

ABOUT THE COYOTES: Doan was the best skater on either team in Game 4 - and as head coach Dave Tippett pointed out, that wasn't all the veteran forward brought to the table. "You don't see all the things that happened behind the scenes in the dressing room, inspiration for the guys there, how much he cares about this team and winning," he said. "When you can do that behind-the-scenes stuff, bag it up with the on-the-ice stuff, it speaks volumes for who he is." The 35-year-old Doan has been with the club since it moved from Winnipeg to Phoenix in 1996, and is competing in his first-ever conference finals.

TRENDS:

*Kings are 7-0 in their last seven road games.
*Coyotes are 2-5 in their last seven games as home dogs.
*Under is 6-1 in Phoenix's last seven games playing on one day's rest.
*Under is 5-2 in the last seven meetings.

OVERTIME:


1. Game 4 marked the first time the Kings had been shut out in a playoff game since losing 4-0 to the Colorado Avalanche on April 29, 2002.

2. The Kings are 10-8 all-time in the playoffs in potential close-out games.

3. Doan's first-period power-play goal ended a string of 30 straight penalty kills by the Kings.
