Admittedly struggling recently, we continue to battle on as we turn to the National Hockey League to get us off the schnide and close the year on a winning note. The final game on the SportsInteraction NHL betting board has our attention as the Edmonton Oilers host the Los Angeles Kings. Edmonton is aiming for an eighth straight victory at home while the Kings have won two in row on the road since returning from the Christmas break. Puck dropped is slated for 9:00 PM ET on December 29, 2015, as Rexall Place in Edmonton, AB.
Los Angeles Kings: Leaders of the pack in the Pacific Division
Still without much in the way of consistent competition, Los Angeles continues to own the Pacific Division lead with a 22-12-2 record as their 46 points is nine up on the 37 points posted by Arizona and Vancouver. Following a slight skid heading into the Christmas break, the Kings went 1-3-1 and were outscored by a 17-10 margin, Los Angeles let a 3-1 lead slip away late but posted a 4-3 (OT) win in Arizona on Saturday and then crushed the Canucks by a 5-0 count in Vancouver last night. The Kings are playing their ninth road game during a ten game span dating back to December 8.
Edmonton Oilers: Earning an eighth straight home win would tie a club record
Although somewhat difficult to believe, when one considers the Wayne Gretzky era, the Edmonton Oilers record for consecutive homes wins sits at eight. Gretzky & Crew accomplished that feat twice from January 19 to February 22 in 1985 and from February 24 to April 2 in 1986. Following a 4-3 (OT) loss to Chicago on November 18, the Oilers have won their last seven games at Rexall Place by a combined 28-15 margin. Edmonton went into the break with a 3-1 home win over Winnipeg but they’ve dropped their last two contests 2-1 (OT) in Vancouver and 5-3 in Calgary on Sunday.
