The L.A. Kings will look to put their loss to the Stars behind them when they take on the Canucks tonight at 10:10PM ET in Vancouver.
According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Kings are -210 money line favorites versus the Canucks, who have odds of +175 to pull off the upset. Los Angles is also -1.5 (+160) on the puckline while the over/under sits at 5 goals.
Jonathan Quick allowed three goals on 39 shots in Saturday’s 3-2 loss to Dallas, which dropped his record to 39-22-4 in 2015-16. He still owns a 2.21 goals-against-average and a .919 save percentage, however, and should start to rebound into form with the playoffs rapidly approaching.
Ryan Miller will draw the start for the Canucks after he and Vancouver beat the Sharks 4-2 on Thursday. Miller turned aside 32 of 34 shots during the contest to earn just his second win of the month. His record climbed to 16-23-9.
The Kings are 10-4 in their last 14 games versus the Canucks and have won seven of their last 10 in Vancouver. The Canucks are 0-5 in their last five home games and have won just nine of their last 11 so the Kings are worth a flier on the puckline tonight.
