Ottawa comes into this game after snapping their three game losing streak with a win against Pittsburgh, while Los Angeles has won three of their last four games. The Kings are 4-0-0 on the road this season and they have scored nine goals in their last two road games. Ottawa is 3-2-0 at home, but they have lost their last two home games. Los Angeles is playing some very good hockey right now and I really like how their offense is looking. Take the Kings here.
