VERSUS to broadcast Blackhawks-Kings
Two big points in the Western Conference playoff race will be up for grabs on national television Monday night.
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.
Quote of the Day

You don't see many. The [Drew] Doughtys, the [P.K.] Subbans, those are guys that create offense from the back and then on top of that ability, the size that he has. In the West you play against some pretty big players, and being able to clear the crease and contain the [Ryan] Getzlafs and the [Corey] Perrys and [Anze] Kopitars and players like that, we're excited about him going back there.
