Los Angeles Kings
Los Angeles is a team that continues to progress. A couple of years ago, the Kings were in the status of league outsiders. Still, last season they achieved the playoffs, where they lost to Edmonton in the first round in seven games - 3:4. Now the Californians are trying to take another step forward, and the Oilers are their opponents again. In Canada, the competitors exchanged victories, so they came to the USA with an equal score. The third match was highly stubborn; the Kings first led - 1:0, then conceded – 1:2, but they could win back in overtime – 3:2.
Edmonton is another team that has seriously improved in recent years. Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl would never know the feeling of significant victories. However, they reached the Stanley Cup semifinals last season, where Colorado defeated them – 0:4. Now the Oilers will try to rehabilitate and get to the main playoff series. It would be nice to overcome the first round's barrier, which they already have problems with. In the first game, they lost to Los Angeles in overtime - 3:4, losing home ice advantage.
Expert Betting Tips
Before the start of the cup battles, Edmonton was considered the favorite in the game with Los Angeles, but now everything is ambiguous. The Californians took the lead in the series for the second time, but in the first case, the Canadians were able to win back. And now their chances of success are seen as higher than those of the Kings.
Do not expect the upcoming match to satisfy us with a high-scoring performance. In the last five personal meetings, Los Angeles and Edmonton have forced only 22 goals for two (4.40 on average per game), a poor result by NHL standards. With each new match of the series, the price of mistakes will be higher and higher, and therefore their risk will be minimized.
