Stephen Nover's NHL Monday Totals Crusher
Los Angeles vs. Anaheim,
12/02/2019 22:00 EDT,
Score: 2 - 4
Total: -125/+5½ Under
This is the first meeting this season between these in-state, division rivals. I envision a feeling-out process and a tight checking matchup between two of the lowest scoring teams in the NHL.
The Kings rank 26th in scoring and 29th on the power play. The Under is 5-0-1 in their last six road games. That's not a big shock considering the Kings have managed only 10 goals during their last eight away games.
The Ducks are 26th in scoring. Their power play ranks even lower than the Kings at No. 30.
Both projected goalies - the Kings' Jonathan Quick and Anaheim's John Gibson - have strong histories in this series.
