NHL hockey wagering fans have been impressed with the surging Columbus Blue Jackets while the LA kings have hit a slump against the NHL hockey lines. NHL hockey wagering handicappers had taken notice of the Los Angeles Kings after their strong run in January that got them back into post season contention.
Lately, however, the Kings have come back down to earth and have not retained NHL hockey wagering value. Los Angeles had a record of 26-25-2-7 straight up and 31-29 against the NHL hockey lines. From February 12 through February 25 the Kings got the cash in just 2 out of 8 games.
The Kings defense, which was ranked 11th in the league, became inconsistent and this contributed to LA’s NHL hockey wagering problems. Meanwhile the 23rd ranked offense failed to gain any solid traction.
Los Angeles suffered a NHL hockey wagering loss to the Blue Jackets in their last meeting on December 29 by a score of 2-0 at Staples Center, LA. The Columbus Blue Jackets are poised to have their most successful NHL hockey wagering season ever and their first post season appearance.
Columbus has been on a tear against the NHL hockey lines since February 7 as they got the cash in 7 out of 10 games through February 26 to climb up to 6th overall in the NHL hockey wagering standings for the western conference. The Blue Jackets NHL hockey wagering strength has been their 8th ranked defense.
Goaltender Steve Mason has been a solid NHL hockey wagering asset with a sparkling 2.14 goals against average and a most impressive save percentage of .920. Rick Nash has been another strong NHL hockey wagering factor as he led the team in scoring with 26 goals and 31 assists.
Kristian Huselius is another Blue Jacket that is starting to make a name for himself as he had 18 goals and 25 assists. Center RJ Umberger has impressed with 21 goals and 13 assists.
