Kings slip past Golden Knights
Los Angeles earned a 4-3 home victory Saturday over Las Vegas to improve to 8-11-1 on the season. Blake Lizotte put the Kings on the board with a shorthanded goal at the 9:01 mark of the first period off assists by Adrian Kempe and Drew Doughty. Doughty made it 2-0 on the power play later in the first with assists going to Alex Iafallo and Anze Kopitar. The Golden Knights trimmed it to a one-goal game in the second period, but LA answered less than two minutes later via a Nikolai Prokhorkin goal with assists courtesy of Kyle Clifford and Matt Luff. Las Vegas tied it with a pair of goals before the period was completed. In the third period, Jeff Carter provided what would be the game-winning goal at the 7:18 mark with an assist from Matt Roy. Jonathan Quick registered 28 saves on 31 shots in the winning effort.
Coyotes shut out Flames
Arizona picked up a 3-0 home win over Calgary Saturday to improve to 12-7-2 on the season. After a scoreless first period, Derek Stepan put the Coyotes on the board with an unassisted goal at the 13:25 mark of the second period. Carl Soderberg made it 2-0 under two minutes later on a goal assisted by Lawson Crouse and Phil Kessel. Crouse added an unassisted empty-net goal with seven seconds left in the game to complete the scoring. Darcy Kuemper stopped all 37 shots sent his way to record the shutout.
NHL Betting Trends
The Kings are 16-35 in their last 51 games following a win. Los Angeles is 16-39 in its last 55 road games.
The Coyotes are 1-4 in their last five games versus a team with a losing record. The home team is 6-2 in the last eight meetings.
The Coyotes have been very strong on the defensive end this season and have received solid goaltending from both of their keepers. With Antti Ranta in net tonight, I still love Arizona in this spot. The Kings are not going to win a lot of games this season and are due for a defeat. Put the money on the home team here.
