8* Sunday NHL LA/CHI
Los Angeles vs. Chicago,
02/17/2013 15:30 EDT,
Score: 2 - 3
Money Line: +120 Los Angeles
The Chicago Blackhawks host the Los Angeles Kings on Sunday afternoon. Chicago is coming off a 4-1 win over San Jose, while Los Angeles beat Columbus their last time out, 2-1.
Los Angeles has won two in a row since losing four of five. The team is finally starting to get the type of
top-notch goaltending that propelled them to a Stanley Cup a year ago, with Jonathan Bernier allowing only one goal in each of the team’s last two games.
The offense is picking up as well, as Anze Kopitar has recorded eight points in his last nine games, and Mike Richards has added seven points in his last eight games.
The Kings were victorious in each of their two trips to the United Center last season, outscoring the Blackhawks 5-2.
The Chicago Blackhawks have enjoyed one of the finest starts to a season in recent memory, but the start of that run could come back to haunt them in this one. The Blackhawks opened their season by spoiling the Kings’ Stanley Cup celebration in Los Angeles, and the Kings will surely be looking for revenge in this one.
The road team is 5-1 in the last six meetings between these teams. Take Los Angeles.
Good Luck, Razor Ray
