Where: Staples Center.

On the air: TV: FS West; Radio: 1150.

Update: These are two teams that have been spiraling downward, although the Oilers did thump San Jose, 5-2, Thursday. Still, Edmonton has lost nine of its last 11 games. The Oilers' two victories in that span have both been with backup goaltender Devan Dubnyk in net. Edmonton is scoreless in 27 consecutive power plays over its last nine games. The Kings have lost seven of eight and are 1-6 on an eight-game homestand. They have slipped from fourth place to a tie for 10th in the Western Conference since returning home. Anze Kopitar has not scored a goal in his last nine games, but he has picked up 10 assists.
