    My First Hockey Write-Up of the Year (10/14)

    Take the Ducks/Kings OVER 5.

    The Kings have looked useless on offense so far this season, scoring only one goal in 120 minutes of play against the Sharks.

    With tons of young talented stars in Kopitar, Brown, O'Sullivan, Frolov, Stoll, Moulson, Moller, Boyle, etc etc, this is a trend that will not keep up. Yes it is a young team that will definitely go through growing pains, but the talent is definitely there. They are a good team on the power play, and the Ducks love taking penalties, which should provide ample opportunity for the Kings to find the net a few times.

    The Ducks, meanwhile, are the reason this bet will cash. With Jack Johnson out, the Kings already horrible defense will be even worse. Jason Labarbera will be playing his 3rd game in 4 nights, and he's been getting a steady barrage of shots; he has to be tired. With young players galore on the Kings, the Ducks should have plenty of odd-man breaks the other way.

    Lastly, 5 is just too low for these teams. Yes, obviously players and goalies have changed, but they always seem to get revved up for these games and score some goals. If you bet the OVER 5 over the last 3 years in this rivalry, you'd be 14 - 3 - 7

    07/08:

    4 - 1 Kings 5
    4 - 1 Ducks 5
    4 - 3 Ducks 7
    6 - 3 Ducks 9
    3 - 2 Ducks 5
    3 - 1 Kings 4
    2 - 1 Ducks 3

    4 - 3 Ducks 7

    06/07:

    4 - 3 Ducks 7
    3 - 2 Ducks 5
    4 - 3 Ducks 7
    3 - 2 Kings 5
    3 - 2 Ducks 5
    4 - 3 Kings 7
    4 - 3 Kings 7
    5 - 3 Kings 8

    05/06:

    3 - 1 Ducks 4
    4 - 3 Kings 7
    6 - 2 Ducks 8
    3 - 2 Kings 5
    6 - 2 Ducks 8
    4 - 3 Ducks 7
    6 - 2 Ducks 8
    4 - 2 Ducks 6

    Good luck!

    2 - 2 with 6 minutes left in the 3rd period made this bet a freeroll.

    3 - 2 at the end of the 2nd gave us the 3rd period only needing one goal.

    Kings scored with 18 mins left to give us the 6th goal.

    Doesn't get much easier than that . Congrats to those that tailed me.
