Take 5 Los Angeles Kings (-130) over Edmonton Oilers

The Los Angeles Kings (-130, 5 U/O) go for their fifth straight victory when they take on the Oilers in Edmonton at Rexall Theatre.

Los Angeles (4-3) has rebounded well from a troubling 0-3-0 start, led by strong goaltending and a boost on offense from 23-year-old forward Tyler Toffoli who will be trying to extend his scoring streak to five games. Toffoli has netted five goals in his last four contests while Jonathan Quick has given up two tallies in his past three starts, a stretch that includes a 3-0 victory over Carolina on Friday. 

The Oilers (3-5) lost their first four games but have has turned things around winning three of their last four contests. 2015 top rookie draft pick Conor McDavid is actually better than advertised and has collected four goals and three assists in his last four games. Edmonton won three in a row before suffering a 7-4 home defeat against Washington on Friday.

The Kings scored a total of 23 goals while earning points in four of their five meetings (3-1-1) with the Oilers last season.
