Los Angeles Kings
Last year, the start of the season for Los Angeles did not go well at all. The team gained points with great difficulty and only at the end of the regular season pulled themselves together and won seven victories in a row. But this did not help the Kings get a ticket to the Stanley Cup since they had to be content with only the 14th line in the Western Conference standings. Most of the Kings’ points were earned on the home arena, where the club is much more enjoyable to watch. This season, the situation should not change much, and Los Angeles will again be a serious opponent, mainly at home.
Minnesota looked pretty well last year. The team consistently earned points, and there was a slight decline in the middle of the season. But this did not prevent the club from taking the 10th line in the West with 77 points. However, the Wild failed in the playoffs. After a confident victory in the first match of the series over Vancouver in the 1/16 of the Cup, Minnie could no longer show anything, losing the next three meetings. It is worth noting that Minnesota plays well on the road and has proven this more than once last year. In 10 previous matches, only two defeats.
Los Angeles Kings – Minnesota Wild prediction
Los Angeles is a pretty solid team, but only on their own ice. Minnesota only occasionally beats the Kings on the road, even though the Wild, in turn, plays well on the road. Bookmakers give a fairly high odds for the Kings victory, thanks to which there is an opportunity to hedge and bet on a double chance.
