New Jersey Devils vs Los Angeles Kings prediction

The New Jersey Devils have been road warriors this season, and that makes them worth a look. The Devils are 16-11-2 on the road this season. With that said, this is a weird early game on the west coast, which makes things even tougher for a Devils team that's on an east coast clock. The Kings are also playing better than the Devils right now, and they beat them a few weeks ago in February. The Kings beat the Devils 2-1 in the last meeting. The Kings aren't as good at home as they are on the road, but I'm still going to lay the cheap price with LA at home.
