In a game from NHL, we will see Los Angeles Kings at Minnesota Wild.
The Los Angeles Kings have the lowest amount of points in the Western Conference with 39 and the fewest goals in the NHL with 104. This has been an abysmal season for the West Coast team but they have shown that they can throw one or two surprises when least expected. Jonathan Quick saved 38 shots in the Kings’ last win while Anze Kopitar scored two goals and he is the leading scorer of the team.
The Minnesota Wild are 22-22 and they will be looking for a vital win, in order to get over .500. Alex Stalock is expected to start between the sticks which will be his first start for the last 7 days and 9th for the season. He is 4-4-0 with a 2.64 goals-against average and .904 save percentage as a starter this season, including 2-0-0 with a 2.92 GAA at home.
The Kings have an offense that can’t be relied on. That is why they rarely win two games in a row. Minnesota is a good home side which I expect to continue to roll.
