It is the home opener for the Kings so they should have a vocal crowd and a good NHL betting situation. Both teams come into the game at 1-1 but the Kings have the edge with this game being in Los Angeles.
Power Outage – So far this season the Kings have had a major power outage. They have just three goals in their first two games. The power play is just 1 of 9 this season. They were seventh in the league a year ago but so far this season they have done very little. The Kings lost 3-1 to Calgary on Sunday night and really did nothing.
Road Warriors – The Thrashers are starting the seasons with a four-game road trip. They won the opener against Washington but lost at Tampa Bay on Saturday night. The Thrashers were without Ondrej Pavelec who collapsed in the opener. Chris Mason got the start on Saturday and really didn’t play that well. He allowed five goals on 36 shots vs. the Lightning.
