It’s time to Beat LA again, though an exhausted San Jose Sharks squad is hoping they won’t need extra time to get it done, going to a shootout in each of their last three games. This bout against the Los Angeles Kings is the final hurdle before the team can return home and play at SAP Center.

John Leonard returns to the line up, called up from the San Jose Barracuda. The rookie forward has two assists in seven NHL games so far. The Sharks will also see a new back up netminder for the night, as Devan Dubnyk is considered day-to-day with a lower-body injury.

Here’s everything you need to know to tune in tonight:
