Taking a break from our research of the AFC and NFC National Football League Championship games, our free pick focus turns to a light night in the National Hockey League. Los Angeles hosts New Jersey as the Kings deal with Devils at 10:30 PM ET on January 14, 2015, at the Staples Center in Southern California.
Los Angeles Kings: Streaky regular season M.O. continues
Continuing their modus operandi of doing just enough during the regular season to qualify for the NHL playoff party, Los Angeles (20-13-10) currently sits third in the ultra competitive Pacific Division. After getting outscored 16-13 during a three-game losing skid, LA got back to doing what they do best as the Kings played stellar defensive during a 2-0 win over Toronto on Monday. The Champs clamped down on the high scoring Maple Leafs as they held the Buds to just 19 total shots on goal.
New Jersey Devils: Scoring challenged squad limps into a three game California road trip
Three games past the NHL half way point, New Jersey (15-21-8) needs to get rolling to avoid missing the postseason for a third straight year. The Devils are 4-8-4 over their last 16 games and will be without their top scorer tonight as Jaromire Jagr, the ageless wonder, is out with an illness. Patrick Elias, fourth in scoring, may not go tonight either as he is dealing with a hyper-extended elbow. New Jersey can ill-afford to lose scoring punch as they are 28th overall with a tiny 2.14 GPG average.
Devils vs Kings Game Day Call: On a 5-2-4 run, the Kings have earned at least one point in nine of their last eleven games. The Devils have been out shot in eight of their past nine contests (186-258) and we expect that trend to continue against the defensive minded defending Cup Champs tonight. Though tempted by the puck line, we are taking a “safer” path by backing the Kings with a 500 unit wager on the money line price posted on the Sportsbetting.ag online sportsbook betting board.
