Los Angeles vs Pittsburgh: prediction for the NHL game
Los Angeles Kings
Despite all their setbacks, Los Angeles continue to deliver solid results. The Kings played their last six games at home, where they suffered only two defeats - to Nashville (2:4) and Vegas (3:6). Both times goalie Quick made too many mistakes, and he was even substituted off after conceding five goals to Vegas.
The Kings also experienced some problems against Vancouver, but managed to snatch a win in overtime (2:1 OT). In the other two games, Los Angeles got confident victories over Detroit (4:0) and the Rangers (3:1).
Pittsburgh lost their ten-game winning streak when they suffered a narrow defeat to Dallas (2:3) away from home. The Pens took the lead in the first period, but the Stars made an impresive comeback.
Evgeny Malkin has recovered from his injury and is back in the ranks. He scored a double in the game against the Ducks and helped his team get an important victory (4:1). Goalie Driedger was also great as he saved 96% of the shots on goal.
In 4 out of 5 head-to-head games, the teams scored in each period.
In 4 out of 6 head-to-head games, Pittsburgh scored first.
Los Angeles are in excellent form and continue to deliver successful results. The Kings are an uncomfortable opponent for Pittsburgh and often create problems for the Pens. We suggest betting on the double chance for Los Angeles.
