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

Los Angeles Kings at Anaheim Ducks (-116, 5)

Southern California fans couldn't ask for a better way for the first-ever Stanley Cup playoff series between the Los Angeles Kings and Anaheim Ducks to culminate. With a trip to the Western Conference final on the line, the Pacific Division-champion Ducks host the rival Kings in Game 7 of their second-round matchup on Friday. Fresh off its historic comeback against San Jose in the opening round, Los Angeles kept rolling by winning the first two games of this set on the road before dropping the next three contests.

Anaheim jumped into the driver's seat thanks in part to rookie sensation John Gibson, who posted a shutout in his postseason debut to even the series before improving to 5-0-0 (regular season included) during his brief time in the NHL with another strong effort in Game 5. Los Angeles drew from recent experience and staved off elimination Wednesday by recording a 2-1 triumph at home. Defenseman Jake Muzzin and Trevor Lewis scored while Jonathan Quick made 10 of his 21 saves in the third period, including several during a frenzied comeback attempt by the Ducks during the final minutes of the session.

LINE HISTORY: Pinnacle Sports opened the Ducks as -113 home faves with a total of 5.

INJURY REPORT: Kings - D Willie Mitchell (Questionable, hand), D Robyn Regehr (Questionable, upper body). Ducks - RW Tim Jackman (Questionable, hand), G Frederick Andersen (Questionable, lower body).

WHAT THE CAPPERS SAY: "I think this game is going to be decided by the men between the pipes. L.A. obviously has the advantage in that department as Jonathan Quick has been around the block and has a ton of recent experience to draw upon. The oddsmakers would agree, despite Anaheim's best regular season in team history and home ice advantage for the all important Game 7, this line has opened at a near "pick-em" price." Covers Expert Nick Parsons.

WHAT THE BOOKS SAY: "This is the 3rd game seven in the conference semi finals, in the other 2 semi final game sevens the road team has come out the victor.  Will this trend continue in this game?  58% of the money is on the kings money line and 77% of the action is on the Ducks -1.5 puck line." Michael Stewart, CarbonSports.ag.

ABOUT THE KINGS: Los Angeles likely wouldn't be one victory away from the conference final without the tremendous play of Anze Kopitar. The 26-year-old Slovenian has registered at least one point in all but one of the Kings' 13 playoff games and leads the league in postseason scoring with 17 points. Kopitar made a nifty cross-slot backhand pass to set up Muzzin's goal on Wednesday and was very efficient in the faceoff circles, winning 15 of his 23 draws.

ABOUT THE DUCKS: Captain Ryan Getzlaf has been producing against the Kings, collecting a goal and six assists, but Anaheim needs more from Corey Perry. The former Hart Trophy winner has registered only a tally and two assists versus Los Angeles after recording two tallies and five assists against Dallas in the first round. Anaheim dropped from first overall to sixth in playoff power-play efficiency, failing on all five opportunities in Game 6 to fall to 25.5 percent (12-for-47).

TRENDS:

* Under is 7-2-3 in the last 12 meetings.
* Kings are 7-3 in their last 10 vs. Pacific.
* Road team is 7-2 in the last nine meetings.
* Over is 4-1 in Ducks last five Friday games.

COVERS CONSENSUS:
65 percent of Covers Consensus wagers are on the Ducks.
