Kings vs Devils Preview
The Kings got a big boost from acquiring LeCavalier after Gaborik went down and now on the IR. LA ranks 8th in scoring, potting 2.8 goals per game. The Kings made a great off-season move acquiring Milan Lucic and this LA team appears to be better than ever. Even their power play chances they convert 23% of their chances, which ranks 3rd in the league.
On defense they rank 7th only allowing 2.4 or less goals per game. As I mentioned, this team is better than ever and should not be taken lightly come playoff time.
New Jersey won Saturday 2-1 over the Flyers in Philly, now they will travel back home to take on the mighty Kings. The Devils have scored just 10 goals in their last six games and are now last overall in scoring barely netting 2.2 goals per game, but they have been solid on the power clay, converting on 20.3% of their chances, ranking 7th in the league.
