This matchup features Pacific division rivals, the Los Angeles Kings and the Vegas Golden Knights. This will be the fourth meeting between these two teams this season, all of which will have been played within the last month. So far this season the Kings have had the upper hand, winning two of the three meetings.
Los Angeles Kings
The Kings are sitting last in the Pacific division and will need a massive turnaround if they are going to make any kind of push towards the playoffs. A lot of their struggles have come from their inability to score the puck. Scoring an average of 2.3 goals per game has put them in 31st in the NHL. Their leading point scorer is Anze Kopitar, who only has 25 points on this season. Perhaps the start of a new year will wake up this Kings team, but if they continue to play poorly they are in for a rough second half of the season.
To make matters worse. the Kings defense ranks in the bottom half of the NHL. they allow an average of 3.0 goals per game. The only way the Kings win this game is if they can hold Vegas under three goals.
Vegas Golden Knights
The Golden Knights are once again having a fantastic year for a team that came into existence just one year ago. They are looking to tie the season series with the Kings at two games a piece. They are averaging 3.0 goals per game, which should be enough to take down Los Angeles.
To go along with their offense, the Golden Knights has a defense that ranks 6th in the NHL. They allow an average of 2.7 goals per game. This works out for Vegas because Los Angeles is last in the league in scoring.
