Can Kings avoid sixth loss in a row vs the Ducks?

The Los Angeles Kings do battle with their Western Conference rival, the Anaheim Ducks, tonight and are desperate for a win after dropping their fifth game in a row yesterday. The Kings only have one win in 2018 and are playing their worst hockey of the season. They opened as heavy dogs to overcome the Ducks, who are 6-3 SU in their last nine games when hosting Los Angeles.

SHARK BITES
  • The total has gone OVER in three of the Kings’ last four games against the Ducks.
  • The Kings are 11-2 SU in their last 13 games on the road against teams with losing records.
  • Anaheim is 5-2 ATS in its last seven games at home.

Anaheim has gotten mixed results in January with a 3-3 SU record but when they win, they score a lot. In those three wins, the Ducks have piled up 14 goals but in the three losses, they managed only four goals. But Anaheim has climbed back up from the depths of the Western Conference and now sits two points out of a playoff spot.

Their captain Ryan Getzlaf has done as much as he can to keep this team afloat since his return from injury on December 12 and has notched 19 points in 16 games.

If the Kings have a panic button, now is the time to push it. Los Angeles has taken such a tumble since mid-December and is 4-10 SU in its last 14 games. Before this slide, the Kings were second in the West and cruising but now they are on the outside looking in at a playoff spot as Colorado and Dallas have moved past them.

In January, the Kings rank in the bottom 10 in both goals allowed per game and goals scored and it may not get much easier to rebound as four of their next five games are on the road.
