But what's the 411 on this theme night?

It will kick off with a 90s-inspired Fan Fest outside of STAPLES Center, where you can listen to music, play games, enjoy the beer garden and more before heading in to watch the Kings take on the Edmonton Oilers.

Inside STAPLES Center, there will be 90s music all night long (can you say Backstreet Boys?) and 90s-inspired graphics. As if the night couldn't get better, the Kings Ice Crew will be dressed up as some of their favorite characters from 90s TV shows and movies!

The night is going to be fly.

For those that aren't in LA and can't make it to the game, FOX Sports West's broadcast is throwing it back with us! Does anyone remember the glow puck?

Since FOX started broadcasting NHL games in 1995, it only seemed right that they head back to the decade that started it all.

The NHL was completely new territory for FOX. "We carried over the same idea we had for the NFL: Same Game, New Attitude. We've always taken the game seriously and tried to have fun with the players, and coming after the first season of the NFL, the NHL emphasis seemed fun," explained Mike Berger, Chief Researcher at FOX NFL.

And oh boy, did they have some fun with it.

Plus, to say that some of the FOX Sports West broadcasters and staff are excited, is an understatement.

"During the summer, I like to drop by the Kings office, pretending to do actual 'work.' One day, I happened to notice '90s Night' as a date on the promotional calendar. Then it dawned on me… what could be more 90s & hockey related than the glowing puck, animated robots, and kitschy opening montages from the NHL on FOX? I e-mailed Hoover, our producer at Fox Sports West, and he got the ball rolling from there. Needless to say I've been irrationally excited about this night for a while,' play-by-play announcer Alex Faust excitedly discussed.

So from the 90s music to 90s-themed graphics to a 90s ticket pack, this game is going to be bangin'.

You don't want to miss out. Buy your tickets now!

We outtie.
