The Kings will get a chance to knock off their rink rust from the all-star break right off the bat as oddsmakers have scheduled them in action on Wednesday and Thursday. L.A. hosts Tampa Bay in the front end.
Arizona is also on the back-to-back after having to take a trip to Anaheim on Wednesday. Does both teams being on 0 days rest make this one a wash – or does it further give the edge to the Coyotes?
Oddsmakers have set Arizona at a pretty convincing -175 home favorite for this one. 5 of the last 6 in this series have gone ‘under’ the total, which could be a big reason why the O/U is set low at 5.5.
Los Angeles Kings
LA is hoping that the long break helped them to recharge their batteries a bit and hit reset on the season. The Kings are once again the worst team in the Western Conference with just 41 points.
The Kings had also dropped four straight games prior to the all-star game layoff and sport a 2-7-1 record over their last 10.
After a short 1-game home stand against the red hot Lightning, Los Angeles is back on the road Thursday – their 6th away tilt in the last 7. The Kings are 7-17-4 on the road this season.
Todd McLellan is likely to go with Jonathan Quick in net Wednesday vs. the Lightning. That leaves Jack Campbell in line for the start vs. Arizona. Campbell started the last two before the break, but also allowed 4 goals in each.
Can the Coyotes exploit the Kings fatigue and going to their #2 goaltender on Thursday? The Coyotes have their own energy concerns to worry about, but at least will be at home.
For all their woes, the Kings do rank 1st defensively for fewest SOG allowed per game. Arizona had been held to a goal or less in 3 of their last 6 games prior to Wednesday, including getting SO on consecutive nights January 9th and 10th.
Darcy Kuemper has been activated from the injured reserve list, but Arizona will likely go with Adin Hill in net after Antti Raanta got the start vs. the Ducks. Hill has been good with a .920 save percentage but in limited opportunities.
The good news for the Coyotes is that they have taken the first two games vs. Los Angeles this season. That includes a 3-0 home win on November 18th and then going on the road 5 days later to win 3-2 in LA.

Free Los Angeles Kings vs. Arizona Coyotes NHL Prediction:
LA being on 0 days rest their first two games after the break doesn’t look good. Then again, Arizona doesn’t have value at -175 though on their own back-to-back.. Another low scoring game is the route to take.
