The Los Angeles Kings will take on a bang-ed up St. Louis Blues squad tonight at Enterprise Center.

St. Louis is coming off a two-game series against the San Jose Sharks, with a close 3-2 overtime win and a 5-4 loss that came down to the wire. That’s because the Blues are shaken up with injuries, leaving their forward corps wonky — but don’t let that fool you into thinking they’re entirely ineffective.

The Kings, meanwhile, will be glad to see Andreas Athanasiou finally return to the lineup and provide an extra scoring touch.

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