The Kings are off tonight, but here are six hours of hockey that directly affect the Kings' playoff situation.
- Chicago Blackhawks at Detroit Red Wings (4:30PM, Versus) -- Chicago is four points behind the Kings with a game in hand. This is the first of the Hawks' three remaining games against the Red Wings.
- Colorado Avalanche at Anaheim Ducks (7PM, whatever channel the Ducks are on) -- Anaheim is three points behind the Kings. This is one of those dangerous bottom-feeder games that hopefully maybe the Ducks will take for granted. They won't. But we can dream.
