The Los Angeles Kings are now on a five-game losing streak, with just three wins so far on the season. Though they were able to get a point in Tuesday’s 4-3 shootout loss to the San Jose Sharks, the team is now in last place in the division. Wrapping up the two-game series tonight, the Kings need to take advantage of another weak team.

John Leonard will return to the line up for the Sharks, called up from the San Jose Barracuda. The rookie forward has two assists in seven NHL games so far. The Sharks will also see a new back up netminder for the night, as Devan Dubnyk is considered day-to-day with a lower-body injury.

As for the Kings, Drew Doughty is expected to be in the line up after sustaining an injury due to a blocked shot in the third period on Tuesday.

Here’s everything you need to know to tune in tonight:
