Sharks vs. Kings: Lines, gamethread and where to watch

San Jose heads to Staples Center on NBC Sports

NHL: Los Angeles Kings at San Jose Sharks Neville E. Guard-USA TODAY Sports

The Sharks and Kings go head to head for the final time during the regular season at 7:30 p.m. PT on NBC Sports with the season series on the line. San Jose goes without Joonas Donskoi and Logan Couture while the Kings look to claw their way back into the Pacific race.

Ryan Carpenter draws into the lineup on his birthday for the first time since Nov. 30 in Couture’s absence (illness) which moves Patrick Marleau to the second line center position. The Kings lost to the Lightning on Monday to snap a two-game winning streak.
