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.
