Kings Look To Halt Skid, Face Sharks

The Los Angeles Kings (6-4-3) will try to halt a four game winless streak when they travel north to face off against their division rival, San Jose Sharks (7-4-1).

This will be the first meeting between the two clubs since last season's Stanley Cup Playoffs, where the Sharks eliminated the Kings in game of six of the first round.

Coming into the game, the Kings are lead by goaltender Jonathan Quick who is sporting a 1.68 goals against average on the season, but has a 2.66 goals against average during the Kings' current winless streak.

Anze Kopitar, who leads the Kings in goals, assists, and points (7-9-16), has had success against the Sharks in the past, recording seven points in his last four games at the Sharks' HP Pavilion. A spark that could prove vital for an offense that has scored just  six goals in its last four games.

The Kings will be the third game of the Sharks' current six-game homestand. The Sharks have gone 1-1 in the first two games of their homestand and will look to rebound after a 4-3 overtime loss to the Nashville Predators on Saturday.

San Jose's Joe Pavelksi will try to continue his current hot streak, that has seen him register at least one point in seven of his last eight contests.

Both teams, not playing at their full potential, could use this game as a spark to get themselves over their current slumps and back on track to make a run for a division title.
