The Los Angeles Kings (18-26-5, 41 points) continue their east coast trek on Saturday with a visit to the City of Brotherly Love to play the Philadelphia Flyers (25-17-6, 56 points). On Saturday, the Kings are playing their fifth straight game on the road when they visit the Philadelphia Flyers. The Kings have lost three straight and three of the first four on their road trip.

Philadelphia lost its most recent outing to the Montreal Canadiens on Thursday 4-1 that snapped a two-game winning streak for the Flyers. The Flyers have fallen to 6th Place in the Metropolitan Division but are just 4 points out of 4th Place.

Kings continue road trip

Los Angeles has tumbled to last place in the Pacific division during its current East Coast road trip. The Kings have just 41 points and are tied for last place with the Anaheim Ducks. Los Angeles’ most recent loss was 4-3 to the Florida Panthers on Thursday night. Anze Kopitar scored one goal and had two assists in the loss, while Alex Iafallo and Adrian Kempe scored for the Kings.

Anze Kopitar leads Los Angeles in goals with 17 and is the assists leader with 26 and therefore leads in points with 43. The king's power play sits at 16.4% while the penalty kill is a poor 74.5%. Goalie Jonathan Quick and the defense are allowing an average of 3.10 goals per game while the offense only generates an average of 2.53 goals per game.

The Flyers need to find a consistent winning combination

Philadelphia lost its last outing 4-1 to the Montreal Canadiens and over their last 10 games the Flyers have won three and lost seven. That poor play has resulted in the Flyers falling to 6th place in the Metropolitan Division 13 points behind first-place Washington. In the loss to Montreal the Flyers the only goal was scored by Joel Farabee in the first period.

Travis Konecny leads the flyers in goals scored with 15 while Sean Couturier is the assists leader with 28 and the points leader with 41. The Flyers power play is currently 18.9% while the penalty kill is 81.6%. Philadelphia's defense is allowing an average of 3.00 goals per game while the offense generates a slightly higher amount of 3.04 gold per game.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

The Los Angeles Kings are road-weary at the least as this will be their fifth straight game on the East Coast. The Kings have had poor defense and goaltending the whole season evidenced by allowing an average of 3.1 goals per game. Los Angeles has not fared well against teams with winning records losing 48 of last 68. Philadelphia likes its home ice having won nine of its last 12 at the Wells Fargo Arena.

Prediction: Philadelphia Flyers

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

The total has gone over in seven of Philadelphia's last eight when only playing on one day's rest and in nine of the Flyers last 14 overall. The Kings will be at least a skate slower than the Flyers thanks to living out of a suitcase and on the road for the last week and a half and that means less offense, and a poorer defense. The total has gone over in four of Kings last five when playing against a team from the Eastern Conference.

Prediction: OVER
