On the next game day of the NHL, Los Angeles will host San Jose for the second time. You will find out how the teams may perform in our prediction.
Los Angeles Kings
Los Angeles continues to lose in every match. The losing series has already reached five games in a row – the team failed to cope with Minnesota (3-5), Anaheim (1-3) and Vegas (2-5 and 3-4). They also failed to beat San Jose because the Kings conceded a goal a minute before the end. The Kings’ main problem is the lack of confidence in defence, which leads to many goals conceded. Because of this, Los Angeles continues to be on the last line in the Western Conference with only nine points.
San Jose Sharks
San Jose continues their away series. The team had two meetings with Anaheim, first defeating the opponent in the shootouts (5-4) and then losing in the shootouts with a score of 1-2. Then the Sharks again managed to earn points by beating Los Angeles (4-3 SO). It is worth noting the line of attack, which delivered 40 shots on target, making it possible to win. Thanks to the points gained, the Sharks could leave the last line in the West table, but the team is still not in the best position. Too many points lost, most likely because San Jose played all their matches this season away.
Los Angeles Kings – San Jose Sharks prediction
Los Angeles lost at home again due to defensive problems. San Jose was able to take advantage of the opponent’s mistakes in defence, thereby levelling the score and gaining the upper hand in the shootouts. It is better to give Sharks the betting preference again in the next match, as the team looked a little stronger.
