Best bet: Kings-Ducks

Bless the Anaheim Ducks. After a not-so-great start to the season for the team, it looks like they and the Oilers may actually have a little race going in the Pacific Division, at least for now. The Sharks and Kings are circling just behind, ready to chomp at the first sign of weakness. (Pun fully intended.)

As a result, this game gets a lot more interesting. The Ducks do better at home, naturally, and the Kings have been simply abysmal on the road. We’ll see if they can pull themselves together enough to give the Ducks a proper game. Just a few points separate them right now, after all.
