Rangers are 0-4 in the last 4 meetings in Los Angeles and 2-5 in the last 7 meetings. The favorite is 4-0 in the last 4 matches. The home team is 4-0 in the last 4 matches.
I’m not running to the window to support either of these teams in their current form, but the New York Rangers continue to be far more disappointing. The Los Angeles Kings continue to show an offensive spark and have done their best work on home ice. In a battle between two teams going through a funk, I’m going to lean towards the Kings at home.
