Not only will you enjoy a great game against two teams competing in the tough Western Conference, you will also be helping out the Kings players.

"It's loud in there when we have a lot of people so it's always fun to play in front of that many people," captain Dustin Brown said. "It always gives a player an extra boost."

Kings coach Terry Murray, a former NHL player, agreed with Brown.

"Playing in front of an energetic and loud crowd, full house at home, I think is an extra player on the ice for us," Murray said. "It's that kind of importance. The players on the bench during the National Anthem they take a look around, they see what's there, they're energized. It's an intangible that you can feel as you get ready to start the game. Very important for the young players."

Through the first month and a half of the season the Kings have gotten off to a solid start, currently sitting in second place in the Pacific Division with 28 points and a record of 13-9-2.

Center Anze Kopitar currently leads the NHL in points (33) and is sixth in goals (14), a major reason the young Kings have put the rest of the league on notice.

"Obviously we're doing pretty good right now but there's been games that we've let get away from us," Brown said. "We could be doing even better; i'ts just a matter of working at it and sticking with it."

Chicago is another young team that made it all the way to the Western Conference Finals last season. With exciting players such as Patrick Kane, Patrick Sharp, and Jonathan Toews, the Blackhawks are one of the top teams in the NHL, sitting atop the Central Division with 32 points and a record of 15-5-2.

Earlier this season, the Kings fell to the Blackhawks 4-1 in Chicago, and will be looking to enact some revenge when they come to the STAPLES Center this Saturday.

"They went to the conference finals last year and theyre playing really well right now," Brown said. "They got a lot of exciting players and so do we, so it'll obviously be a fun game. I think whenever we play a team like Chicago it's always exciting, especially for the fans.

So bring the entire family to STAPLES Center this Saturday for great family-fun at an excellent price. You won't be disappointed.

"I think we have one of the greatest facilities in sports," Murray said. "I think this is a great hockey area. I think the L.A. fans are tremendous, they're loyal. I think there's a great deal of support and we need to as a team, as an organization, continue to push in the right direction so that we can get those big crowds, those sellouts, on a game-to-game basis."
