Los Angeles vs Arizona: prediction for the NHL fixture
Los Angeles Kings
AfterLos Angeles broke their seven-game winning streak by losing 2:3 to Winnipeg away, the team went into a downturn. The Kingssuffered a home defeat to Washington (0:2), failing to break through the strong defenses of the Capitals. After that, Los Angeles put up a good fight against Carolina, but the Hurricanes were still stronger in the end (4:5).
Arizona ended their three-game losing streak by beating St. Louis (3:2) away. The Coyotes' goalie Wedgewood deserved praise for making 34 saves in that game. However, Arizona couldn't build on their success, and lost to Columbus in a shootout (4:5 SO) at home. In the second home game, the Coyotes managed to defeat Detroit with a score of 2:1.
In 4 head-to-head games in a row, the teams didn't score in each period.
In 3 out of 4 head-to-head games, the teams scored more than 1 goal in the first period.
Los Angeles suffered a dip in form, but they always put up a fight at home, even against much stronger opponents, than Arizona. The Coyotes continue to deliver disappointing performance, and in this fixture we suggest opting for the hosts' victory.

We do not expect a barn-burner here, since the teams rarely score a large number of goals in head-to-head games. They managed to overcome the total of 5.5 goal in just one match out of five.
Second wager - total under 5.5 goals
