NHL Preseason/Wednesday's Picks

06 October 2021

Inside look at Los Angeles Kings

The Los Angeles Kings try to snap a two-game skid tonight as they continue their preseason in Anaheim against the Pacific Division-rival Ducks. Game time is 10:00 pm ET at Honda Center.

The Kings (2-3-0) have sputtered on offense while dropping back-to-back games to Vegas and Arizona by a combined score of 8-1. Last night’s 4-1 loss to the Coyotes at home came despite LA outshooting Arizona, 39-20. Gabriel Vilardi tallied a goal in the first period, but the Kings were unable to score from there.

Anaheim (2-3-0) was able to snap its own three-game skid with a 3-2 win in a shootout at San Jose on Monday. Trevor Zegras beat Sharks’ goalie James Reimer for the winning goal.

Dunkel has the Kings picking up the victory tonight on the road with the final score staying under the Vegas total of 6.
