Two big points in the Western Conference playoff race will be up for grabs on national television Monday night.
The Chicago Blackhawks, who sit two points out of a playoff spot after Sunday's 2-1 loss at Anaheim, will visit the Los Angeles Kings at the Staples Center. Game time is slated for 9 p.m. ET and can be seen on VERSUS in the United States.
Los Angeles (22-15-1) is tied for fifth place in the West with the Colorado Avalanche and St. Louis Blues, who both lost at home Sunday night. Anze Kopitar leads the Kings with 41 points (15 goals, 26 assists) in 38 games.
