NHL: Kings to produce response against Rangers

The NHL continues on Friday night with five matches taking place.

We've picked out our best bets from the action with a £10 stake returning £129 if all three are successful.

Los Angeles Kings to beat New York Rangers @ 31/20

The Kings saw their eight-game winning streak - the longest run in the NHL this season - come to an end with a 5-1 defeat to the New Jersey Devils at the Prudential Center. Afterwards coach John Stevens admitted his team had been "complacent" so we expect a response. The Kings are 10-4-1 on the road while the Rangers go into the game having lost three of their last four games and with a 12-5-3 home record.

San Jose Sharks to beat Vancouver Canucks 13/10

The Sharks (8-4-1 on the road) have three wins from four games, Joonas Donskoi returning from a six-game absence with injury to grab the game-winning goal late in the third period in a 3-2 triumph over the Calgary Flames on Thursday. The Canucks, meanwhile, are 5-7-3 on home ice and lost 7-1 there to the Nashville Predators on Wednesday, a fourth straight loss, allowing 20 goals in that time.

Toronto Maple Leafs to beat Detroit Red Wings @ 6/5

The Wings are in a slump having lost 10 of their last 11 games (1-5-5), their latest loss a 3-2 overtime decision to the Boston Bruins which extended their OT record to 0-6 for the season. Detroit are also 5-6-6 at home and we feel the Leafs (20-12-1) can pile on the misery despite dropping to a second successive loss when being shut-out for the first time this season in a 2-0 defeat to Minnesota Wild on Thursday.
