Columbus Blue Jackets
Columbus continues to be one of the league's top underdogs, but compared to the regular season's opening stretch, things have improved for the Jackets lately. They got off to a mediocre start and then went on a nine-game losing streak that spoiled their standing to the max. Thankfully, they did not give up after that and gradually improved the situation. In the last seven meetings, they have only three losses. However, all of them were in regulation time, and they beat Chicago 7:3, New Jersey 2:1, Boston 5:2, and Ottawa 4:2 to move up to the penultimate place in the Eastern Conference standings.
Los Angeles Kings
Los Angeles performs more and more confidently every year, gradually becoming a contender for the highest places. From the beginning of the current regular season, the Kings began to actively collect points, and by now, they have managed to produce several winning streaks. One came in the second half of November when they won five consecutive games, every time in regulation time. After that, there was an unexpected defeat from Washington - 1:2, but the Californians did some work on their mistakes, beating Colorado - 4:1. Now the Blacks and Whites are on the fourth line in the Western Conference standings. In terms of points lost, they are in the lead.
Expert Betting Tips
Los Angeles is the best visiting team in the regular season in the NHL. In nine away games, the Kings have won nine games with a 42:15 goal differential. That's impressive! Columbus has also started to improve lately and cling to points gradually. However, they are still one of the league's top outsiders, so it will be extremely problematic to interrupt such a strong streak of the Californians. The statistics of head-to-head meetings also confirmed in favor of Black and White; they won three of the last four meetings.
We have already noted that Los Angeles plays a great role, and special attention should be paid to the productive attacks of the Californian team. In nine away games, the Kings have already scored 42 goals (4.67 per game on average). In the upcoming matchup, they will try to keep a solid statistic, and they will try to dominate on the ice from the very first minutes.
