It has been a fine season for the LA Kings, but the hard work really starts after this game on Thursday. The Kings will still be battling for a victory in this final game of the season, as a victory could wrap up in third in the Pacific Division. They come into this game after going 5-5-0 over their last ten.
The Kings have been steady on the road throughout this season, as they have gone 20-14-6. But, they will need to be more consistent in their performances on the ice when the playoffs get underway, as they won’t be allowed to get away with underperforming.
It’s fairly difficult to feel as upbeat about the Ducks season, as they are rooted to the bottom of the Western Conference. They come into this final game of the season at the Honda Center after suffering 12 straight losses, with eight of their previous ten coming in regulation time.
At home, they have gone 12-24-4 this term. They could yet finish off the bottom of the conference standings, but they will need to claim victory and hope that the Chicago Blackhawks are beaten. However, it has been hard to see where a win is going to come from over their previous 12.
The LA Kings look good value to end the regular season on a high point on Thursday. We expect them to land victory before the real test gets underway when the playoffs begin.
