LA Kings San Jose Sharks

The LA Kings get another crack at the San Jose Sharks on Saturday night after dropping a disappointing 4-3 overtime loss to the Sharks on Thursday.

After taking six minor penalties, the Kings HAVE to stay out of the penalty box. And with so many injuries in the lineup right now, Los Angeles needs their leaders to step up right now.

Projected Lineups

Here’s how the Kings lined up last time out against the Sharks:

Drew Doughty reportedly didn’t make the trip to San Jose with the team. Hopefully, his hand injury doesn’t linger too much longer because the Kings need him for the homestretch and obviously the playoffs, assuming they can get there, of course.

With Jonathan Quick going on Thursday, Cal Petersen makes sense to go on Saturday and perhaps get the majority of the starts the rest of the way?

Here were the Sharks starters on Thursday:

Adin Hill is the expected starter for San Jose:

The Kings and Sharks get underway from the SAP Center at 6:30 pm PT.
