Los Angeles Kings
The Kings are three points clear of Vegas atop the Pacific Division. This is despite getting throttled, 5–1, in their last game against the Devils. It was a forgettable night for Jonathan Quick but Torrey Mitchell scored his first goal of the season in the loss.
It wasn’t a smooth stop to a season-high eight-game winning streak for the Kings. Though LA had won the previous two games in overtime.
Anze Kopitar leads the team in goals, assists, and thus, points. He’s got 38 on the season. Meanwhile, Jonathan Quick is having another excellent season but the backup Darcy Kuemper is outpacing his numbers. Kuemper hasn’t lost in regulation yet this season and is saving over 94 percent of the shots at him.
New York Rangers
The Rangers lost in a shootout at the Garden earlier in this week against the Stars. That ended a long home winning streak for New York. The Rangers went on the road on Wednesday for a quick trip to Ottawa and left 3–2 losers.
The Senators got their third goal in the first ten seconds of the third period to go up by two goals. They made it interesting at the end by allowing a New York goal four minutes later but the Rangers couldn’t slide a third one past.
Mike Zibanejad will practice on Thursday and might, just might, return for this game, though I’m not counting on it. Still, some good news for Zibanejad is good news for the Rangers, who hasn’t played since the end of November.

Free Los Angeles Kings vs. New York Rangers Prediction: the Rangers get a quality win at home.
If this were the NCAA, it would be a resume-building win for the Rangers. They are an excellent home team and I think they will right the ship after a bad week with a statement victory.
