Both the Red Wings and the Kings are coming off of overtime losses in their respective season openers. Detroit dropped their first to the Columbus Blue Jackets while the LA Kings lost to San Jose at home.
Detroit Red Wings
Detroit had quite a time handling the Blue Jackets last time out. Columbus controlled almost every aspect of the game and left the Wings scrambling and stumbling for more than 60 minutes, duping the Red Wings into more penalties than they would’ve liked.
Penalties weren’t the only downfall for the Red Wings. Columbus outdid Detroit 57% to 43% in the faceoff circle, as well as doubling up on the power play opportunities (6-3), and out shooting the Wings by a tally of 39-20. Only one Detroit forward had more than two shots on goal (Dylan Larkin).
Los Angeles Kings
If LA watched any game tape from the Wings season opener, you should expect a lot of puck movement, and a very aggressive forecheck from the home town team. Quick passing that can lead to shots in traffic, that is how the Kings will have to play at home on Sunday.
Besides keeping Detroit off balance, Los Angeles will need to get some production out of their Power Play unit, especially if the Red Wings are willing to give as many chances as they did against the Jackets.

Free Detroit Red Wings vs. Los Angeles Kings NHL Prediction:
The Kings should have a lot easier time handling the Red Wings then they did the Sharks on Friday night. Look for the Kings to come out firing early, and keep up the pressure for the entire 60 minutes.
Both teams Power Play’s are coming in at 0% so far on the young season, but look for that to change on Sunday. If the Wings give the Kings five or more chances, the Kings will light the lamp and make them pay.
