Los Angeles Kings
The Kings rebounded from their first loss in regulation this season with a shootout victory over Ottawa last night in the second night of a back-to-back.
Los Angeles will get Wednesday off to watch their hometown friends in the World Series (while on the road) and rest their weary legs from three games in four days.
Los Angeles looks as good as any in the NHL to start the season. Jonathan Quick has been his usual superb self and is a big reason why the Kings rank first in goals allowed per game (2.1).
The 91.2 percent penalty kill has a lot to do with it, too. That’s good enough for second in the NHL.
Combine that stingy defense and goaltending with the fourth highest-scoring offense in the league and you have yourself a first place team.
Thursday night’s game in Montreal will be Los Angele’s fourth on its current six game road trip.
The Canadians are at the other end of the standings over on the East Coast. But Montreal did get its second win of the season with a 5–2 home win over the Florida Panthers on Tuesday. Even with the five goals, the Canadians still only average 1.9 per game so far this season.
So how are they to score enough to beat the Kings? Perhaps by holding them down.
The Kings do have the day off on Wednesday but it’s a travel day and the road trip is likely to be catching up to them by now, even if it is still early in the season.
If Montreal can out-skate them, it might not have to necessarily create a lot of goals if it can maintain enough possession to keep LA off the board.

Free Los Angeles Kings vs. Montreal Canadians Prediction: the Kings win.
I’m not betting on it, though. We did get Montreal on Tuesday but I’m fading them on Thursday. The only question is whether it’s worth the price.
