The Anaheim Ducks have jumped into first place in the Pacific Division, and a date with inter-state and division rival Los Angeles awaits them on Sunday.
- The Kings are 1-4 in the last 5 meetings.
- The OVER is 5-0-2 in the last 7 meetings in Anaheim.
- The Ducks are 4-0 in their last 4 home games.
Oddsmakers initially set the Ducks as -141 home chalk with a total of 5.
Ryan Kesler has been a major reason for the Ducks’ stellar recent play. The center has long been known as one of the league’s top defensive forwards, but he’s recorded six goals in his last six games.
Los Angeles’ struggles on the power-play are well documented, as the team is converting on just 10.3 percent of their opportunities with the man advantage. The Kings have been even worse in their last 12 games, scoring on just two of their 37 opportunities.
Anaheim has dominated this series of late. The Ducks are 7-2 SU in their last nine with Los Angeles, including a 4-0 victory on November 1.
