San Jose Sharks vs Los Angeles Kings prediction

The Los Angeles Kings are the better team, obviously, and should win this game, especially at home. The San Jose Sharks have looked like they don't even belong in the NHL for much of the season. However, we're getting almost 3 times our money to fade a Kings team that's lost 10 of their last 12 games. Let's spin it for a second; You're laying all this juice with a team that's lost 10 of their last 12 games? Heck, the Kings have been better on the road than at home this season. If forced to pick this contest, give me the Sharks and the better potential payout.
