The Los Angeles Kings have dropped three in a row at the Staples Center and five straight to Ottawa, but they’ll look to buck that trend against the Senators in Saturday’s NHL action.
- The Senators are 1-5 ATS in their last six games on Saturday.
- The Kings are 4-10 SU in their last 14 games after a loss.
- The Kings are 0-3 SU in their last three games against the Atlantic Division.
The last time these teams collided was north of the border on November 11, when Mark Stone scored with seven seconds remaining to hand the Kings a heartbreaking 2-1 setback. Stone has scored seven goals and set up seven others in his last 12 games.
L.A. goaltender Jeff Zatkoff has been great against the Senators, but it hasn’t translated to the betting window. Zatkoff has stopped 49 of 51 shots in two career starts vs Ottawa, but has an 0-0-1 mark to show for it.
Betting on the underdog has been the way to go when these teams meet. In the previous four games between the Kings and Senators, underdogs are 4-0 SU.
