We get a premier matchup Saturday afternoon in LA as two teams with high playoff aspirations battle it out.
The Stars are trying to wrap up a western Championship with the Blues in hot pursuit, while the Kings attempt to hold off the surging Ducks for a divisional crown and home ice advantage.
Theres still alot at steak in the western even with less than a week to go. Potential home ice advantage, crucial for a strong home team like Dallas, is a coin flip right now.
Dallas has played extremely well of late but the Blues have matched them and remain just 2 points behind.
Dallas have won 6 of 7 while outscoring opponents 28-13.
The Kings will be happy to be playing back in LA this week. The road hasn’t been very good to them, but staples Center has seen them win 10 of their last 12 with impressive victories against top their teams.
This is vintage Kings hockey as we’ve seen over the past couple of seasons, where they really turn on the heat in the last quarter of the regular season.
I expect LA to have a strong playoff run and the stars are a great test this late in the season.

Free Dallas Stars vs. LA Kings NHL Hockey Prediction
This will be one of the better games to watch on Saturday, and I don’t expect either team to. Hold anything back as a win here sends a clear message towards the tail end of the season.
This one is a coin flip for an outcome, one one hand LA has been a monster at home, but Dallas has played some of their best hockey since before the Christmas break.
4* Free NHL Betting Pick Total Over 5.5
What I’m certain of is goals. Over the past 11 matchups, 8 games have had 5 goals or more and Dallas is notoriously worse on the defensive side away from Dallas.
With both teams scoring well lately and neither playing exceptionally well on the defensive side I easily see a 4-2 or 4-3 finish to this one.
NHL Free Score Prediction: LA 4-2
The 5.5 line currently sits at +112, with a near split on action so it’s very possible the books move this one to 5 before Saturday morning at lesser odds. Either way, the over is the smart play here.
