Los Angeles Kings vs Carolina Hurricanes Predictions
Los Angeles has gone 30-20-5, which puts them in fourth place of the Pacific Division. Carolina is 26-21-9. The Hurricanes find themselves in fifth place of the Metropolitan Division.Carolina and Los Angeles met once back on December 9. The game went to overtime before the Kings were able to take the 3-2 win. Tyler Toffoli and Anze Kopitar each scored a goal to give the Kings a 2-0 lead after the second period.
Victor Rask and Elias Lindholm both scored a goal in the third period to send the game to overtime. Tanner Pearson ended it though with forty seconds left in overtime. Scott Darling had a rough game as he allowed three goals on twenty-one shots. Jonathan Quick had thirty-two saves.
Jonathan Quick is expected to start against the Hurricanes. Quick has posted a 21-19-2 record, which has led the Kings to a solid placement in the Pacific Division. He has a .921 save percentage and a GAA of 2.46. The Kings will be expecting another solid game from Quick against the Hurricanes.
The Hurricanes will likely be starting Cam Ward on Tuesday night. Carolina seems to have shifted to Ward as their starter as Scott Darling has underperformed in net this season. Ward has gone 16-7-3 this season, which is much better than Darling’s record. Ward has a save percentage of .913 and a GAA of 2.59.
Anze Kopitar is the clear point leader for the Kings. Kopitar has a team-leading twenty-two goals and fifty-nine assists. Drew Doughty is second on the team in points with thirty-nine. Dustin Brown rounds out the top three with thirty-eight points. Sebastian Aho is leading the team in goals and points with twenty and forty-three. Teuvo Teravainen is second on the team with forty-two points. Justin Williams, Jeff Skinner, Jordan Staal and Elias Lindholm each have over thirty points.
Los Angeles Kings (+111) at Carolina Hurricanes (-123)
Dustin Brown will miss Tuesday’s game matchup because of his one game suspension he got against the Lightning. Trevor Lewis is questionable for Tuesday night’s matchup. Jeff Carter is still out. The Hurricanes have no injuries in their lineup.
The Hurricanes are entering this game on a two-game winning streak. Carolina was able to knock off Vancouver and Colorado at home in the last week. The Kings are coming off a loss in Tampa Bay. This is the third game of a seven-game road trip for Los Angeles.
Carolina is listed as a -123 for this matchup. That money line gives the Hurricanes implied odds of fifty-five percent. The Kings are the better team in this game and while it is in Carolina, I still believe Los Angeles has a better chance at winning it then the odds give them.
