San Jose is 5-11 in their last 16 road games and 0-5 in their last 5 games following a win while the under is 4-1 in their last 5 Thursday games. Los Angeles is 0-5 in their last 5 games overall and 1-5 in their last 6 home games while the over is 4-1 in their last 5 games as a home underdog. San Jose is 8-3 in the last 11 meetings between these two teams and 12-2 in the last 14 meetings between the two in Los Angeles.

I get why you could make a case for either side here, with L.A. at home while the Sharks already beat the Kings the other night. However, I’m going to go back to the well with the under here. We almost had it in the last meeting but a late goal forced OT and blew it. I think we see a more traditional rivalry game, hard-hitting, low-scoring and just a bunch of back and forth hockey Give me the under here.
