LOS ANGELES, CA (The Spread) – Who holds the edge tonight in Game 3 when the Kings host the Blackhawks at 8:00PM ET?

LINE MOVEMENT: The Blackhawks opened as +120 money line underdogs but their odds have dropped to +114, while the Kings’ odds opened at -130 and have dropped to -123. The total hasn’t budged since opening at 5 goals at most online and Vegas sports books.

NHL FREE PICK: Take Los Angeles. According to latest NHL trends, the Kings are 18-6 in their last 24 games following a win and 7-3 in their last 10 games playing on two days of rest. The home team is also 7-3 in the last 10 meetings between these two teams while the Blackhawks are just 2-7 in their last nine games playing on two days of rest and 1-6 in their last seven games on Saturday. Chicago is also 8-20 in its last 28 road games versus a team with a winning home record and 2-5 in its last seven games following a home loss of three or more goals. The Kings seemingly stole the momentum of this series in the third period of Game 2. Now that they’re back home, look for them to seize on that momentum and beat a Blackhawks team that has struggled at times on the road this postseason.
