Los Angeles vs Edmonton: Oilers And Kings Clash in California

Los Angeles vs Edmonton: Oilers And Kings Clash in California

LA Kings: Leaders of the lackluster Pacific Division

While we still haven’t hit the quarter pole of the 2015-16 NHL season, some fairly heavy preseason chalk teams have not lived up to their lofty rankings in the Western Conference. That is part of the reason why the Kings 10-6-0 record is good for the top spot in the Pacific Division. That mark would be good for fifth in the Central Division. Los Angeles has sandwiched loses on top of wins as they are 3-3-0 to open November. Prior to that, the Kings went on a seven-game winning streak to halt a three-loss season opening slide. The Kings have crowned the Oilers in six straight games at the Staples Center.

Edmonton Oilers: Return visit to SoCal ends a four game road trip 

Edmonton hits the ice looking to earn a 2-2 split as they close out a weird four-game road trip tonight – it would be a mini victory. The Oilers dropped a 4-2 decision in Chicago last Sunday, then won 4-3 in overtime in Anaheim on Wednesday, before losing 4-1 in Arizona on Thursday night. Though they did have a day off, flying into California, then up to Arizona and then back down to Socal is a strange path to take. Edmonton has lost 12 of the last 15 meetings in this series. We like the Kings Jonathan Quick (7-6-0 GAA 2.30) over the Oilers Cam Talbot (3-7-0 GAA 3.00) in the goaltending duel here.

The Oscars: Nomadland The Pick Of The Flicks

Making Oscars 2021 picks isn't like wagering on a sporting event. While certainly there is the so-called Oscar buzz that's generated around certain films, the decision on which movie, director or actor gains the Academy Award is solely based on a secret ballot held by the members of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. There are no past performances to assess, so going with an underdog isn't necessarily a bad strategy.
