Score: Kings 3, Coyotes 2, OT
Reason: Phoenix won 5 of their last 6 games, but the Kings NEED to win against every Pacific opponents to secure a play-off spot. It will come down to the wire, but they’ll find a way to please the Staples Center crowd who will still be reeling at the news of their season ticket price hike.
Record: 3-4

Score: Kings 4, Coyotes 3, shootout
Reason: Spectacularly huge game. Tough call on this one. Yotes are playing well but the Kings always play them tight. If practice is any indication, they’re due for a run. There’s no doubt the Kings match up, and with the new kids on the block, I’m predicting some difficult adjustments by Phoenix. JMFJ gets a goal and the SO winner.
Record: 3-4

Score: Kings 3, Coyotes 1
Reason: Richards new friends in Nolan and King continue to pay dividends. Their line gets a goal, Kopi and Williams come through again, and one of the 4th liners gets 1 as well.
Record: 3-3

Score: Coyotes 3, Kings 1
Reason: The bubble pops on King and Nolan, as they get held off the scoresheet. And with that youthful spark, the Kings offense will suffer. Phoenix scores an empty-netter to secure the win.
Record: 1-6
