8* Monday NHL NYR/LA
NY Rangers vs. Los Angeles,
10/07/2013 22:30 EDT,
Score: 3 - 1
Money Line: -145 Los Angeles
Los Angeles -145
The Los Angeles Kings host the New York Rangers on Monday night. Los Angeles is coming off a 5-3 loss to Winnipeg, while New York fell to Phoenix their last time out, 4-1.
It's tough to be too hard on the Kings for their loss to the Jets, considering they went to a shootout the night before in a win over Minnesota.
Now the Kings come home for their opener, and they're happy to be there, posting a 40-11 record in their last 51 home games.
The Rangers did not look good in their opener. A notorious slow starter, goaltender Henrik Lundqvist had trouble with an unimpressive Phoenix offense.
In the end, the Coyotes scored four goals against the Rangers.
The Kings have scored three goals in each of their first two games, and those games were on the road, so don't be surprised if they get to Lundqvist in front of what will surely be a raucous home crowd in this one.
The home team is 4-0 in the last four meetings between these teams.
Take Los Angeles.
Good Luck, Razor Ray
