Kings vs. Oilers Prediction

I’m on the Kings here. I know the Oilers have been solid this season, especially at home, but the Kings are playing well once again and have played their best hockey on the road all year long. I was tempted to side with the Oilers here, but I think the value is on the Kings on the road with the plus money. Give me Los Angeles here.
