Vancouver Canucks vs. LA Kings Prediction, Tips & Odds – Apr. 29, 2022
The most recent results didn’t go in Vancouver’s favor as they have now been officially eliminated from the playoffs. On the other hand, their opponents from Los Angeles have already secured a playoff spot and have been resting their key players in the final games of the regular season.
The Canucks are saying goodbye to their fans with today’s clash against the Kings. Despite their convincing win over the Kraken the other day, the Dallas Stars edged the Vegas Golden Knights and extinguished all of their playoff hopes.
It has been an unsuccessful late playoff push by Vancouver who had a horrible start and a coaching change. Even though they are out of playoff contention, we can expect them to be motivated at home against the Kings who are already thinking about the playoffs.

Los Angeles Kings
After securing a playoff berth, the Kings seem completely uninterested in their couple of remaining regular season games. They are resting their key players and some of them are playing with limited minutes.
This will be a tough back-to-back game for them after playing in Seattle yesterday so fatigue should be an issue. They are bringing a decimated roster to Vancouver but that still shouldn’t prevent them from scoring a couple of goals while playing without any pressure.

Vancouver Canucks vs LA Kings Prediction
Both teams don’t have a real incentive going into this game and have announced their backup goaltenders as starters. Away team won’t be fielding an ideal lineup but they still have enough quality to score. Hosts should be running the show one last time in front of their fans and win the game but there is no value in betting on the winner.
Without any pressure and with a festive atmosphere we expect the floodgates to open so we are backing the Total Over.
Pick: Total Over 5.5
