The Los Angeles Kings are feeling the effects of missing players, hoping to end a four-game losing streak tonight against the visiting San Jose Sharks.

It’s certainly an opportunity, as the teams sit together at the bottom of the West Division standings. The Sharks have struggled with their identity this season, with a rotating cast of rookies filling out the bottom-six. They’re giving the kids a chance, but goaltending and defense often make their efforts for naught. The team has just one regulation win ten games into the season.

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