The Anaheim Ducks are putting a little run together here as of late winning their last 2 games after coming off of 9 straight losses and they should have plenty of belief they can get the job done here, as the Ducks are coming off of beating this same LA Kings team.
Los Angeles Kings
Despite this Kings team sliding in terms of their performances recently, there should still be some optimism about what this team can do going into the final stretch of this NHL season. The one thing about the Kings recent record, is that they are getting a bit unlucky, as 4 out of their 4 latest losses have come via a one goal margin.
The one guy who is getting it done offensively for the Kings is Anze Kopitar who has been awesome so far putting up 6 goals and 24 assists in just 24 games.
Cal Petersen is slated to get the start here and he has been middle of the road in terms of stats with a 2.74 GAA and a .917% save percentage, but I think he is having a better season than those numbers would suggest, as he has stolen some games for the Kings this year and could be the type of guy who can put together a series of stellar performances come playoff time.
Although the chances of the Anaheim Ducks making the playoffs are much lower than the Kings at this point, they have shown fans some reason for optimism going into next year, as they have been good at times this year and have recently won back to back games.
Max Comtois is the number one guy in terms of goal-scoring for the Ducks which is a bit surprising considering he has only averaged a little over 15 minutes per game, but he has without a doubt cemented himself in this team with 9 goals and 10 assists so far on the year.
John Gibson is projected to start in this game and he seems like another guy who has been playing better than his stats would suggest, as he only has a .900 save percentage and a goals against average approaching 3, but he has not been the main problem for this team and I believe if the Ducks return to playing better defense Gibson’s numbers will go back to where they were a few years ago.

Free Los Angeles Kings vs. Anaheim Ducks NHL Prediction:
This seems like a very nice line on the LA Kings at -125 on the moneyline, as I think they are the much better team from an overall perspective and I certainly see them bringing their A game here after dropping their last game to this Ducks team.
I really like the goalie matchup here for the Kings and I feel like the Kings have a more consistent level of offense coming from their first line as opposed to the Ducks first line.
