Sharks vs. Kings: Gamethread, lines and where to watch

It’s Rivalry Night on NBC Sports.

The Sharks play in Staples Center tonight for the first time since eliminating the Kings in the first round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs last season. The game will be on NBC Sports, which presumably means the national audience will get a chance to listen to Randy Hahn tonight. Also so will Kings fans, which is hilarious.

San Jose didn’t skate this morning, unsurprisingly, but the Sharks will go with the same lines as last night. That includes starting Martin Jones in both halves of a back-to-back; which, yes, is a mistake.
