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

Chicago Blackhawks at Los Angeles Kings (-129, 4.5)

Blackhawks lead best-of-seven series 2-0.

The Los Angeles Kings have feasted on home cooking at Staples Center, winning their last 14 consecutive contests - including all seven in the postseason. The fifth-seeded Kings will need that trend to continue in Tuesday's Game 3 of the Western Conference final if they wish to avoid being pushed to the brink of elimination by the top-seeded Chicago Blackhawks. Los Angeles was able to overcome an 0-2 deficit in its first-round series by winning four straight versus fourth-seeded St. Louis.

For the Kings to continue their quest to repeat as Stanley Cup champions, they'll need their offense to make an appearance. Los Angeles has mustered just 29 goals in 15 playoff games - and the waters have been rough against Corey Crawford, who has stopped 50 of 53 shots to win both Games 1 and 2. Kings coach Darryl Sutter didn't mince words when noting the struggles of the line consisting of captain Dustin Brown, Anze Kopitar and Justin Williams. "They've struggled offensively, for sure," Sutter said. "That's not me jumping out making a statement. That is a fact. That is a statistical fact."

ABOUT THE BLACKHAWKS: Pushed to the brink of elimination by Original Six rival Detroit in the second round, Chicago has looked every bit the part of the team that clinched its second Presidents' Trophy in franchise history. The Blackhawks have won five in a row - with more than just captain Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane providing the offense. "When we're rolling four lines, keeping (shifts) short and rolling hard, I think we can have a great hockey team and a great pace in our game," said Bryan Bickell, who netted his sixth goal of the playoffs on Sunday.

ABOUT THE KINGS: Jonathan Quick found himself in an unfamiliar place Sunday - on the bench. The reigning Conn Smythe Trophy winner yielded four goals versus the Blackhawks to earn himself an early exit in a postseason game for the first time since April 23, 2010. Rather than reflect, Quick did his best to look ahead. "We just haven't been finding a way," the Connecticut native said. "We have to find a way. They did their job, now we have to go home and do our job."

TRENDS:

*Blackhawks are 6-0 in their last six Tuesday games.
*Kings are 0-4 in their last four in the third game of a 3-in-4 situation.
*Under is 4-1 in Kings' last five home games.
*Blackhawks are 5-1 in the last 6 meetings in Los Angeles.

OVERTIME

1. Chicago C Michal Handzus has collected two goals and three assists on his five-game point streak. He has one of each in the first two contests of this series.

2. Los Angeles C Mike Richards sat out Sunday's tilt with an upper-body injury - and is expected to be a game-time decision on Tuesday.

3. Blackhawks D Brent Seabrook has scored goals in two of his last three games.

2013 NHL Playoffs

Kings were down 2-0 in first round vs St Louis, rallied to win next four games, including their only road win of playoffs; LA is 7-0 at home in playoffs, allowing eight goals in the seven games. Chicago is 5-2 in its last seven visits to Staples Center; they're 2-3 on road in playoffs, but won last five games overall, allowing eight goals, since being down 3-1 in Detroit series. Eight of last ten LA games stayed under the total; Under is 4-2-1 in last seven Chicago games. Bruins/Chicago are following similar paths; looked dead, but didn't die and now both appear to be on collision course to meet in Cup finals. Blackhawks are 4-1 against LA this season, winning 5-2 in only game played here.

NHL Odds and Lines
By: The Linemakers 
Sportingnews.com

The Los Angeles Kings try to make it a series tonight in Game 3 of the Western Conference Finals with the Chicago Blackhawks. Chicago comes in having taken the first two games of the series and five straight overall, including a dominating 4-2 win in Game 2 that saw Kings’ goalie Jonathan Quick chased from the net.

The good news for the Kings is they have been a force on home ice this postseason. While they’ve managed just a single win on the road, Los Angeles is undefeated at the Staples Center. Perhaps in part due to that success, the Kings are home favorites tonight. LVH has them at -125 on the money line.

But down 2-0, and still lacking home-ice advantage in the series, the Kings have long odds to advance to the Cup finals. LVH has them at +475 to advance while the Blackhawks are -495.

Of premium importance tonight, however, is the status of Kings’ center Mike Richards. After taking a hit from David Bolland in Game 1, Richards was unavailable for Game 2 after reportedly dealing with concussion-like symptoms. The Kings’ leader in points in the postseason is questionable for Game 3.

The lines are from LVH as of about 6:30 a.m. P.T. Check our live odds boards for updated odds.

*Denotes goalie start is not confirmed. Goalie starts can be subject to change.
