With the Leafs having a characteristic strong season lately and the Kings in the basement of the Western Conference standings, I’d say this has the makings of your typical, West Coast trap game for an Atlantic division team.
Yet, the Leafs are coming off a pounding at the hands of Boston, so maybe coach Mike Babcock has his guys’ skates sharpened for this one.
Toronto Maple Leafs
By and large, there isn’t much to complain about in ‘The Centre of the Hockey Universe’ in 2018-19. Sure, the Buds just took a drubbing on the road at the hands of the Bruins, the Atlantic club that has become Toronto’s nemesis in this decade.
But the Leafs have been adding wins regularly without two of their marquee offensive talents (superstar Auston Matthews and sniper William Nylander) and backup Garrett Sparks was in net on Saturday night in Beantown.
The Kings are the kind of crap team that should be ripe for the picking, so Toronto can get back in the win column.
Despite the ugly 5-1 scoreline, the Leafs arguably outplayed Boston for a period and maybe more on the weekend, so they need to simply keep doing what they’re doing and get back in the saddle in SoCal.
Los Angeles Kings
The recent coaching change has shown mixed reviews so far; L.A. is 2-2 since John Stevens was given his walking papers.
The Kings have just one goal in their past two games, they’re coming off an especially off-putting 1-0 loss to Calgary where they got stoned by a backup goalie (David Rittich). L.A. desperately needs to get some offense going, besides the aging Ilya Kovalchuk.
Maybe this team is just switched off, which isn’t a good look for the once-proud franchise and leaves the interim-tagged Willie Desjardins with a tall task. Yet, teams usually get up for playing the Leafs as they’re such a promising, young, fast outfit.
We should see Los Angeles’s best game on Tuesday night at home, and if we don’t – shame on Desjardins and Co.

Free Toronto Maple Leafs vs. Los Angeles Kings NHL Prediction:
Again, the narrative of L.A. playing the role of spoiler is augmented by Toronto’s paltry result in its last game.
The Leafs should be firing on all cylinders to get that bad taste out of their mouths. The Kings have the fewest goals for in the entire NHL (averaging a hair over two per game) and if Toronto starter Fredrik Andersen is between the pipes for the visitors, goals shouldn’t be easy to come by.

I think the Leafs can continue to mop the floor with the West’s current doormat; whether they will or not, depends on the home team’s compete level following some embarrassing outings.
