Kings snap three-game losing streak

Los Angeles secured a 2-1 shootout win at the Blackhawks Friday night as Anze Kopitar went five-hole for the victory after the overtime session ended without a goal. Ilya Kovalchuk also scored in the shootout. Tyler Toffoli gave the Kings (6-11-1) a 1-0 lead with an unassisted goal midway through the second period, while Chicago tied it up at the 17:21 mark of the third period. Cal Petersen recorded 34 saves on 35 shots in the winning effort.

The Predators (13-5-1) trailed 2-0 through two periods before Nick Bonino cut the deficit in half at the 7:51 mark of the third period. Austin Watson and Roman Josi assisted on the score.

NHL Betting Trends

Los Angeles

The Kings are 1-9 in their last 10 Saturday games. Los Angeles is 2-9 in its last 11 games versus the Western Conference.


The Predators are 5-1 in their last six Saturday games. The under is 4-0 in the last four Nashville games playing on one day of rest.


This is a game between two teams heading in opposite directions. Nashville is good enough where this might be the only time all season it drops three games in a row. I'm going to say being back at home energizes the Predators and they win by multiple goals.
