Los Angeles vs Arizona: Kings and Coyotes Clash in California
Defending Cup Champion Kings have hit playoff mode
It’s taken them a while but Los Angeles is finally looking like a postseason contender. The Kings have been one of the hotter teams in the league as they have posted a 12-5 record over their past 17 games. That said, the five loses have come during a 4-4-1 run that includes a 2-1 defeat to Nashville on Saturday. Prior to that, LA had crushed the Canucks (4-0) and Colordao (5-2) in key Western Conference clashes. A veteran squad, the Champs know how to win down the stretch.
Coyotes long season of losing is about to set like the sun in the Arizona desert
It’s been a long season in Arizona and a recent 1-13-1 run has confirmed the inevitable – the Coyotes are out of the playoff race. The ‘Yotes are in another race though as they are six points from landing in the NHL basement. Don’t forget, the NHL cellar dweller gets a 20% shot at winning the first pick in the June 2015 NHL Entry Draft when the Draft Lottery is held a month from now. Buffalo is the “leader” with 44 points, followed by Edmonton (48) and Arizona with 50 points.
Kings vs Coyotes Call: Facts are facts and the Coyotes have been pathetic recently. Things aren’t going to get any better as ten of their last 13 games are against playoff contending teams. The Kings schedule is somewhat lighter as they will play nine of their last 14 games against teams in the NHL postseason chase. Los Angeles is a veteran squad that’s fully aware of the fact that they need to bury non-contending teams to keep their playoff hopes alive.
