Los Angeles Kings
The Kings are in solid form entering this match and will hope to use it to take care of the Blackhawks who are already out of the playoff contention.
The Kings are seventh in the Western Conference one point ahead of Dallas looking to extend their advantage and good form today. At this stage of the season room for error is very small so they can´t afford to drop points against a struggling team which has lost its last 10 out of 12 games.
Los Angeles will be buoyed by their big away win in the last round managing to overcome their fierce rivals, the Anaheim Ducks(2:1). They haven´t been at their best offensively in recent times but they are winning points. Biggest reason for that is their goalkeeper Jonathan Quick who has been in great form. He was torturing Anaheim´s offense recovering from a horrible performance in the game against Colorado a week ago when he conceded three quick goals in the opening ten minutes.

The Kings couldn´t have asked for a better opponent at home than the Blackhawks. Chicago only managed to beat the San Jose Sharks and the Arizona Coyotes in the last month. After their yesterday´s overtime win against a horrible Coyotes team, this will be a very demanding back-to-back game for them against a better-rested team.
They are one of the worst defensive teams in the league conceding almost 3.6 goals per game. In their previous clash against the Kings they only managed to hold on for barely two whole periods losing convincingly by 5:2. In addition, their head-to-head record against Los Angeles is not encouraging at all as they have been beaten in 7 out of the last 10 meetings against them.

Los Angeles Kings vs. Chicago Blackhawks Prediction
With talented scorers like Patrick Kane and Alex DeBrincat the Blackhawks always pose a threat. However, at the moment they are not a match for the Kings who are fighting to enter the playoffs and have to win this game. Look for the Kings to hit a tired Chicago side early to try to secure all three points on home ice.
