Kings are 0-7 in their last 7 games as a home favorite of -151 to -200 and are 0-8 in their last 8 games as a favorite of -151 to -200. The pressure is now on the LA Kings, who don’t want a Game 7. New Jersey pulled out a 2-1 victory in Saturday's fifth game that handed the Kings their first road loss of the postseason, and their only back-to-back losses so far in the playoffs. Devils netminder Martin Brodeur has been the catalyst for the comeback, allowing just two goals in his last two games. The momentum is with New Jersey and there’s great value on the dog.
