The Los Angeles Kings have now strung together a record nine straight wins on the road in the playoffs in NHL betting action. Our Stanley Cup picks continue on Saturday night with what should be another great clash in this series when LA faces off against the New Jersey Devils in Game 2!

Is there any team out there that can stop the Kings right now? It is truly remarkable what they have continued to do now that they have nine straight wins on the road in the playoffs against some of the best teams in the league. That being said, Game 1 was really the first time that there was a level of adversity that was clearly faced. New Jersey might have been the better team in the game for a few stretches of the night, and it showed. In fact, without a real moment of brilliance when Drew Doughty started a break that ended with Anze Kopitar beating Martin Brodeur in OT, who knows whether this series would be 1-0 in favor of the Kings or the Devils. We backed New Jersey the first time around, and we are going to do so again in Game 2. Remember that the New York Rangers shut out the Devils at Madison Square Garden in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals, and we really don’t see why this can’t happen again. The magical streak of perfection on the road is going to come to a close for the Kings on Saturday night.
