Game of the Day: Ducks at Kings
By Covers.com

Anaheim Ducks at Los Angeles Kings (-150, 5)

Los Angeles leads series 2-1.

After sidestepping an 0-3 hole, the Anaheim Ducks attempt to even their Western Conference second-round series when they visit the Los Angeles Kings for Game 4 on Saturday. Anaheim dropped the first two games of the matchup at home, scoring a total of three goals in the process, before taking advantage of its power-play chances en route to a 3-2 triumph in Game 3 on Thursday. Corey Perry and Teemu Selanne each tallied with the man advantage and defenseman Ben Lovejoy added a much-needed goal late in the third period as the Pacific Division-champion Ducks continued the trend of road victories in the series.

Coach Bruce Boudreau switched from Jonas Hiller to Frederik Andersen in goal, citing the former's 0-5-2 career record at Staples Center as the reason. The move worked as the Danish rookie - who was 2-0-0 at Los Angeles during the regular season - limited the Kings to one goal on 23 shots. The 24-year-old Andersen suffered an apparent right leg injury midway through the third period, but Hiller came on and turned aside seven of the eight shots he faced - allowing only Mike Richards' first tally of the postseason with 31 seconds remaining.

LINE HISTORY: The Kings opened as -150 home faves with a total of 5.

INJURY REPORT: Ducks: G F. Andersen (Ques. Lower body), LW M. Beleskey (Ques. Undisclosed). Kings: D W. Mitchell (Ques. Lower body), D     R. Regehr (Ques. Undisclosed).

WHAT BOOKS SAY: "I anticipate making L.A. a smaller favorite in Game 4 than we did the previous game, where they were a -150 fave. Reason being, is that road teams have now won six straight games in this series, dating back to January." - Mike Perry, Sportsbook.ag.

WHAT SHARPS SAY: "So far I'm 3-0 in this series. I took the Kings in Games 1 and 2 and then jumped on the Ducks in Game 3. The line in Game 4 should once again be in the pick 'em range (-125 to -130) for Los Angeles. The Kings' offense finally came back down to earth after its six-game win streak ended. Anaheim made some changes leading up to Game 3, recalling Sami Vatanen from the minors and including Kyle Palmieri in the lineup after he was a healthy scratch previous and the moves seemed to work. I'd say to keep your eyes open for more lineup changes from each team before making a decision." - Covers Expert Art Aronson.

ABOUT THE DUCKS: With Andersen's status in question, Anaheim recalled John Gibson from Norfolk of the American Hockey League on Friday. The 20-year-old native of Pittsburgh was superb during his brief stint during the regular season, going 3-0-0 with a shutout while allowing only four goals on 87 shots. Defenseman Sami Vatanen made his NHL playoff debut in Game 3 and drew rave reviews from Boudreau. "I thought he was the best player on the ice for both teams," the coach said.

ABOUT THE KINGS: While Anaheim went 2-for-2 on the power play Thursday, Los Angeles converted its only opportunity as Jeff Carter cashed in for his third goal of the postseason. The Kings are 8-for-28 with the man advantage over their last eight games after going 0-for-4 in their first two contests. Anze Kopitar extended his point streak to 10 games with his league-leading 11th assist, which also raised his postseason-best point total to 15.

TRENDS:

* Under is 5-1-3 in the last nine meetings.
* Under is 9-3-1 in the last 13 meetings in Los Angeles.
* Ducks are 5-2 in the last seven meetings and 4-0 in the last four in L.A.
* Road team is 6-0 in the last six meetings.

COVERS CONSENSUS: 61 percent of bettors are backing the L.A. Kings
