LA Kings look to halt losing steak at Sharks

Published Add your comment

There are no easy games in the NHL, and nobody knows that more than the LA Kings right now.

The Kings lost their fifth game in a row on Saturday night at Dodger Stadium against the Anaheim Ducks and have now fallen to sixth in the Western Conference.

Their opponents tonight, the San Jose Sharks have gone on a streak of their own, winning their last six games and sitting pretty at fourth in the conference standings.

Kings' captain Dustin Brown believes that LA's problems have come in front of goal with the team being outscored 8-16 in their five losses.

"We had some really good chances," Kings captain Dustin Brown said after the team's loss to Anaheim at Dodger Stadium. "But we've gotta bear down on our chances. We've gotta start finding points."

Points have not been a problem for the Sharks, the fifth highest scoring team in the league but coach Todd McLellan has warned against complacency:

"We can't fall into a trap where we get sleepy, lazy, nonchalant just because we're at home. Teams are competing hard, and we have to match that."

Kings defenseman Matt Greene (concussion) is out indefinitely. Sharks forward Martin Havlat (lower-body injury) is questionable while forwards Logan Couture (hand surgery), Tomas Hertle (right knee surgery), Raffi Torres (ACL surgery) and Adam Burish (back surgery) as well as defenseman Scott Hannan (concussion) are all out.
