This game is sure to be interesting as the 26th ranked Anaheim Ducks play host to the 28th ranked LA Kings. The LA Kings are coming into this matchup 11-14-2 on the season, winning 6 of their last 10. The Ducks are coming off a tough loss, posting their record at 11-12-4 on the year. Each of these teams needs to win to start their last attempt at a playoff push and to boost morale in the locker rooms. LA and Anaheim are in the bottom of the standings so this could be anyone's game.

LA Kings Are Riding A Wave

The LA Kings are coming off of a big win, and with a record of 6-3-1 in their last 10 games, they look to continue the momentum. The LA Kings rank 30th in goals scored on the road averaging just 2 a game. Anze Kopitar has been trying to lead the offense to greater heights, but cannot do it all by himself. Kopitar has 27 points in 27 games and is one of the best forwards in all of hockey right now. Look for Kopitar to be the big reason why LA pulls out a win tonight.

The Kings have not done better on the other side of the ice, ranking 30th in goals allowed per game when on the road with 4.17. Jonathan Quick, the man who was an elite goaltender during the early 2010's when the Kings were at their best, does not seem to still have the ability to win big games anymore. Quick has a save percentage of just over 88 and has not been able to play with the same magic from back in the day. We are about a decade removed from Quick's legendary season and this year makes it seem much longer ago than that.

Anaheim Ducks Try Motivate Squad

The Anaheim Ducks have not had the season fans and players had hoped for, but here is a chance for this team to get motivated. Coming off of a loss, it would really boost morale to beat up on a struggling team such as Chicago. Look for John Gibson to have another great outing, as he has been fun to watch this year helping the Ducks rank 15th in goals allowed per game when at home. Gibson will have to be good here tonight for Anaheim to win.

The Ducks will need a spark on offense in this game, as they rank just 27th in scoring when at home with 2.79 goals per game. Cam Fowler has had a good month, as Fowler ranks 4th in the Ducks in points with 15 in 27 games. Fowler has been stretching the ice with deep passes to the Anaheim wingers an will look to continue that strategy here tonight.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

Go with the Ducks in this game. John Gibson is going to have a big night for Anaheim. Gibson as shown he can easily beat bad scoring teams and the LA Kings are the 2nd worst in the NHL at scoring. Gibson will need to bring it tonight, but if he does, the Ducks have ana amazing chance to win. Ryan Getzlaf and Cam Fowler will also look to have big days for the Ducks as both skaters long for a better spot in the standings than 26th. This team is motivated, and the Ducks will win.

Prediction: Anaheim Ducks

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

I like the Under in this matchup. The boys will be fighting hard out there, and when two bad teams play each other, it seems like the Under is the right bet. John Gibson and Jonathan Quick are solid goaltenders despite Quick's decline over the years. Quick still has the ability to dig down deep and find some impressive play, so I like the Under in this game. This game is going to be a boring, grind it out type of game that will not see many shots, let alone goals.

Prediction: Under
