The Arizona Coyotes will look to build on a 5-2 win over the Kings in their last matchup. Conor Garland leads the Coyotes in scoring with 30 points including 10 goals and 20 assists while Clayton Keller has 29 points with 18 assists and Phil Kessel has a team-high 15 goals this season.

Arizona is 6-1 in their last 7 games overall and 4-1 in their last 5 road games while the over is 7-2 in their last 9 games overall. Los Angeles is 1-6 in their last 7 games overall and 1-4 in their last 5 home games while the under is 6-1 in their last 7 games as a home favorite. The under is 6-2 in the last 8 meetings between these two teams.

You could make a case for either side here as Arizona’s playing the better hockey but Los Angeles is at home and that’s where the Kings tend to do their best work. However, these two teams have a history of playing low-scoring games, and it’s not necessarily a case of good defense being played, it’s all about not so good offense and I just don’t think that we get a ton of goals in this game either. I could see this being a 3-2 game whichever way you slice it, so give me the under here.
