The Vancouver Canucks are averaging 3.3 goals per game and are scoring on 22.2 percent of their power play opportunities. Andrei Kuzmenko leads Vancouver with 34 goals, Quinn Hughes has 56 assists and Elias Pettersson has 214 shots on goal. Defensively, the Vancouver Canucks are allowing 3.8 goals per game and are killing 68.2 percent of their opponent’s power plays. Thatcher Demko has given up 72 goals on 686 shots faced, and Spencer Martin has allowed 107 goals on 830 shots.

The Los Angeles Kings are averaging 3.3 goals per game and are scoring on 24.2 percent of their power play opportunities. Adrian Kempe leads Los Angeles with 32 goals, Kevin Fiala has 46 assists and Viktor Arvidsson has 183 shots on goal. Defensively, the Los Angeles Kings are allowing 3.2 goals per game and are killing 76.2 percent of their opponent’s power plays. Jonathan Quick has given up 99 goals on 798 shots faced, and Pheonix Copley has allowed 77 goals on 804 shots.

The Canucks are 4-12 in their last 16 road games and 5-1 in their last 6 overall. The Kings are 8-1 in their last 9 home games and 7-1 in their last 8 overall. The over is 18-8-5 in Canucks last 31 overall. The under is 4-1-1 in Kings last 6 home games. The Canucks are 5-2 in the last 7 meetings in Los Angeles and 8-1 in the last 9 meetings. The favorite is 8-0 in the last 8 meetings. The home team is 5-0 in the last 5 meetings.

The Vancouver Canucks are enjoying a fine week, but they continue to have issues on the road, and I doubt that changes against one of the hotter teams in the league. The Los Angeles Kings continue to pile up the points and their offense is clicking. The Kings need to take advantage of games like this at home if they're going to steal the Pacific division. Give me the Kings and the PL for max betting value.
