The Los Angeles Kings are playing some of their best hockey of the season, and they’ve done some of their best recent work on the road. However, the Vegas Golden Knights are still one of the better home teams in the league, and they ended their losing streak against an elite Panthers squad. Vegas will get out of this funk at some point, and we rarely get reasonable prices with the Golden Knights at home. Give me Vegas.
