Looking forward to the Kings’ game Saturday afternoon against the Canucks

The Kings take on the Vancouver Canucks on Saturday afternoon at Staples Center, looking to bounce back from a clunker of a 2-0 loss Thursday to the Dallas Stars that ended their five-game winning streak at home. The Kings dominated play, recording 40 shots on net, but they couldn’t score on Stars goalie Kari Lehtonen. The Kings (17-11-2 for 36 points) maintained their spot in fourth place in the Western Conference standings. But the pack of chasing teams is was as bunched as ever going into Friday’s games around the league. The Canucks (15-9-6, 36 points) were in fifth based on fewer victories than the Kings. This is the Kings’ final home game before a trip to Chicago, St. Louis, Minnesota, Dallas and Phoenix. Anze Kopitar leads the Kings with 28 points (nine goals, 19 assists). Henrik Sedin leads Vancouver with 28 points (eight goals, 20 assists).
