The Kings are 14-37 in their last 51 road games and 9-4 in their last 13 overall. The Wild are 4-1 in their last 5 Tuesday games and 3-7 in their last 10 home games. The over is 5-1 in Kings last 6 overall. The under is 10-3 in Wild last 13 Tuesday games. The Kings are 1-7 in the last 8 meetings in Minnesota and 2-6 in the last 8 meetings. The home team is 11-4 in the last 15 meetings.

The Minnesota Wild have had the upper hand over the Kings in past meetings and are playing the better hockey, but they've also had issues at home as of late. The Los Angeles Kings are playing better offensively than we've expected and they'd be able to finish some of these games if the goaltending improves. Quick and Petersen can't be this bad forever, can they? I've been rather impressed by the Kings through six games. I'll take a shot with the road team here.
