L.A. Kings at Montreal Canadiens

NHL: Thursday October 11, 2018 at 7:30 PM EST

The Kings are coming off a 2-1 loss in their last game and for the 1-1-1 club it is the same old song and dance. The defense has been legit for the club, but the offense has been the issue scoring only seven goals in their first three games. Star G Jonathan Quick is dealing with an injury and will not play in this game and that is a big loss, as he is the anchor of the L.A. defense.

The Canadiens have played their first two games on the road this season and this is their first home game. They scored two goals in their season opener, but then unloaded for five in beating the Pittsburgh Penguins 5-1 on their last game.

While the Kings have won five of their last seven games facing the Canadiens they have lost seven of their last 10 games facing them in Montreal.

Good start, bad finish

In their last game, the Kings were on the road and they lost to the Winnipeg Jets where they had a solid start to the game, but went downhill after that. The Kings scored the first goal 6:26 into the game, but then they were shut out of for the rest of the game while giving up two goals. Ilya Kovalchuk scored the lone goal for L.A., who only had 21 shots on goal in the game while the Jets had 37. G Jack Campbell (1-1-0 2.03 GAA) will take the place in between the pipes for the Kings with Quick injured and while he has given up two goals in the two games he has been in between the pipes this season he has faced a total of 77 shots. He stopped 37 of 39 shots in the loss to the Jets. Anze Kopitar and Alex Iafallo each lead L.A. with two goals early in the season. Dating back to last season the Kings have lost their last five road games, but they have won their last six Thursday games.

Dominating the Penguins

The Canadiens got a great 5-1 road win over the Pittsburgh Penguins in their last game where they scored the first four goals. They out-shot Pittsburgh 29-22 in the game and won 14 more faceoffs. Paul Byron had a big game for Montreal in the Pens win scoring two goals and also adding an assist. The Canadiens played a physical game with the Penguins and moved the puck well and four different players lit the lamp. G Carey Price (1-0-1 1.98 GAA) stopped 21 of 22 shots in the game and it was a much better than his season debut where he gave up three goals on 26 shots in a loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs. Montreal is back at home in this game, but they have dropped five of their last six games on home ice. On top of that, dating back to last season, they have lost their last five games following a win.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

The Canadiens are home ice in this game and they are coming off a very impressive 5-1 win over the Pittsburgh Penguins. Them scoring five goals is not good for a Kings’ team that is witout their #1 goalie with Jonathan Quick injured. At home Montreal will play well in their debut on home ice and they will get the W in this game.

Prediction: PICK: Canadiens

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

With Quick out and Montreal scoring five goals in their last game the Over is THE pick in this game.

Prediction: PICK: Over

I dig every sport and the NFL is my favorite. My team is the Redskins and my 2nd favorite is whoever is playing the Cowboys! I am a great handicapper and if you don’t believe me just ask. I don’t just write about betting on games I actually bet on them and I have done well, which is why it is a good idea to follow my picks.
