The Los Angeles Kings have a rebuild around the corner and it looks to be coming sooner rather than later as the team is in dead last in the West, 16 points out of 1st place already. For an example of how far LA has fallen, they are listed at just -120 favorites vs. Arizona at the Staples Center on Tuesday – and Arizona looks like the good bet. The Coyotes are actually on a nice bit of a run and nobody would have even shook a stick if they were favored in this contest.
The Coyotes have won three straight games – all in impressive fashion. They got W’s in two of the toughest road venues in the league in Minnesota and Nashville and thoroughly dominated the St. Louis Blues 6-1 at home on Saturday. Now Arizona comes into Tuesday night’s game with 2 days rest and riding an offense that is actually better on the road than at home.
Arizona has a great chance to pay off as +100 ‘dogs on Tuesday with G Adin Hill in net. He’s only made 4 appearances this season but he’s been dominant in each, allowing just a single goal. Hill has a .984 save percentage on the season to go with his 3-0 record. Is he great – or just benefiting from a small sample size?
Los Angeles Kings
The season is still young for LA and fans want to know if they’re truly showing signs of turning things around. The Kings need to be better than their 5-5 record over the last 10 if that’s the case and their offense definitely needs to show signs of improvement. LA has scored 2 goals or less in 7 of the last 10 and is up against a top 10 defense of Arizona on Tuesday.
What’s being wasted with LA’s poor offensive showings is a solid defensive and goaltending effort. In 5 of the last 10 games the Kings have allowed 2 goals or less. Jonathan Quick is back in net Tuesday making just his third start since October 23rd. Quick was great on Sunday against Carolina, stopping all 34 Carolina shots that he faced. Will he show rink rust in his 2nd start in 3 days or be able to flex his muscle vs. Arizona just like the good ole days?

Free Arizona Coyotes vs. Los Angeles Kings NHL Prediction:
Nobody would blame bettors for putting faith in Quick and the Kings on Tuesday night. The truth is this isn’t the Arizona team of old – or the Kings team of the last few years for that matter. It’s still hard to pull the trigger on the Coyotes after so many bad years but lately their more likely to break your heart if you bet against them rather then on them.
4* Free NHL Betting Pick: Arizona +100
The Coyotes pull this one off in a high scoring affair, getting to Quick who shows some signs of fatigue.
