The Los Angeles Kings have been great at home and awful on the road this year, but the good news for Kings backs is the squad will be back in the Golden State on Saturday against the New Jersey Devils.
- The UNDER is 9-2-2 in the Kings’ last 13 games.
- The road team is 5-1 in the last 6 meetings.
- The Devils are 4-1 in the last 5 meetings.
Sportsbooks opened the Kings as -136 home chalk with an OVER/UNDER of 5.
The Kings are coming off a brutal five-game road trip which saw them drop four straight away from the Staples Center, but they did end it on a good note after toppling Edmonton 4-2 on Thursday. Goaltender Peter Budaj has done a great job filling in for the injured Jonathan Quick and Jeff Zatkoff. Budaj has started 14 of 15 games since the two went down.
The Devils’ power-play has been non-existent in recent weeks. New Jersey is 0-for-24 with the man advantage in the last seven games.
