Los Angeles Kings VS Columbus Blue Jackets match analysis

I wonder how he this match missed my attention. LA Kings are so strong at home this season that it is inexcusable to miss them, esepecially if Columbus is the guest. But now, odds on HW is too low, and I prefere bet on the first period. LA Kings won all eight matches, very convincing goal difference 27:9. The last one was 5:1 against NY Islanders. But in the last round they were defeated 6:3 in San Jose. Taking their previous excellent series of six consecutive victories I think tonight they will win again. Sharks wil be without three injured players tonight - Ponikarovsky, King and Schenn, but for this powerful team it is not a problem. They have one of the best goalies in this season, Quick, with GAA 1.52 and Sv% .944. He allowed only one goal in the previous two games against tonight's opponent. At the same time, Kings scored ten goals in those games. Colorado Blue Jackets had even four victories away from home, while they lost one match, overall goal difference 13:11. So, they look like very strong guest. But, they had very bad home results, especially recently when they lost two of the last three home matches, 2:3 against Minnesota and 1:5 against Colorado. For tonight's match they are without nash and MacKenzie, while Commodore could be on the bench. I do not believe that Mason will on the goal of the Blue Jackets, because the last season Kings drilled him. Otherwise he is the first goalie in the team, Mathieu Garon is in the better shape - GAA 1.28 and Sv% .951 in five games. He had two shutout , one of that in Atlanta. But, this 32-years old Canadian do not have enough NHL experience, and strong team as Kings are can destroy his earlier efficient.  I do not think that Garon can stop Kings. You can see that Bet365 offers bet on Kings win the first period @1.62, and on the other hand Paddy Power, Ladbrokes and William Hill @2.30 or more. Simply, I must try this bet.
