This NHL season we are waiting for a lot of exciting games in different conferences. The match between Los Angeles and Anaheim will end the NHL game day. The game of these teams will be held on December 1 at 06:30 Moscow time at the Staples Center. Our portal has also prepared its own version of the forecast for this game for you.

 Los Angeles Kings

After a fairly successful offseason, Los Angeles got off to a strong start in the championship with victories. However, after a good start, the kings lost the momentum of the game and gave out a series of defeats, showing a frankly disastrous game in defense. Now the kings have started to fail again, showing a weak game at their gates, only in the last match they managed to break a series of defeats with a 4-2 home victory over Ottawa.

Anaheim Ducks

The team released in-demand players in the offseason, but was even able to strengthen due to new signings, and also grew its youth, which already looks competitive at the NHL level. Now the Ducks look extremely confident, having issued a series of victories after not the best start. Anaheim players act aggressively in attack, which brings results. Recently, the Ducks have been failing, and in the last game they lost at home to Toronto 1:5.

Injuries and disqualifications:

Injuries:

 Los Angeles - Walker (upper body injury), Byfield (ankle injury), Andersson (groin injury), Doughty (knee injury).

Anaheim - Kesler (hip injury), Comtois (arm injury), Jones (muscle injury).

Statistics and figures

  • The last match between these teams ended with the victory of Anaheim 3:4.
  • Los Angeles has won only once in its last five matches.
  • Anaheim has a bad streak of two defeats in a row on the road.

Forecast

It is difficult to single out a favorite in this game, because both teams are able to show bright hockey.  Los Angeles has a more powerful squad, but is in bad shape right now. Anaheim has also been looking weak lately and rarely wins. I think a bright and productive game awaits us here.
