The Los Angeles Kings and St. Louis Blues meet Saturday in NHL action at the Enterprise Center.
The Los Angeles Kings look for a win here to rebound from a 1-1-2 record. The Los Angeles Kings are averaging 2.7 goals per game and are scoring on 16.7 percent of their power play opportunities. Andreas Athanasiou leads Los Angeles with three goals, Anze Kopitar has six assists and Jeff Carter has 16 shots on goal. Defensively, the Los Angeles Kings are allowing 3.7 goals per game and are killing 88.2 percent of their opponents power plays. Jonathan Quick has given up 10 goals on 97 shots faced and Calvin Petersen has given up three goals on 24 shots.
The St. Louis Blues look for a win after splitting their first four games. The St. Louis Blues are averaging 2.5 goals per game and are scoring on zero percent of their power play opportunities. Oskar Sundqvist leads St. Louis with two goals, Robert Thomas has two assists and Justin Faulk has 13 shots on goal. Defensively, the St. Louis Blues are allowing 3.5 goals per game and are killing 61.9 percent of their opponents power plays. Jordan Binnington has allowed 10 goals on 115 shots and Ville Husso has allowed four goals on 14 shots.
The Kings are 17-41 in their last 58 road games and 8-3 in their last 11 overall. The Blues are 1-7 in their last 8 home games and 4-9 in their last 13 overall. The under is 8-3-1 in Kings last 12 overall. The over is 4-1 in Blues last 5 overall. The Kings are 4-9 in the last 13 meetings. The road team is 5-2 in the last 7 meetings.
The Los Angeles Kings have been one of the worst road teams in the league dating back to last season and their lack of defense through four games makes them an even tougher sell. The St. Louis Blues have shown flashes of solid hockey up to this point, and they've won the last three meetings against the Kings by a combined score of 13-3. I have no choice but to lay the PL with the Blues at home.
