News & Notes: Kevin Westgarth will be in the line up tonight in place of Trent Hunter. He is needed in this game because of a tough Senators team. The Kings are coming off a 3-1 loss to the Wild on Saturday. This is their last game before an 8 day all star break. The Kings are still only 1 point behind first in the Pacific division, but also only 3 points into a playoff spot.

News & Notes: The Senators have been a huge surprise in the NHL this year. Many NHL experts picked them to finish in the bottom half of the league. The are 5th place in the Eastern Conference and only 4 points out of first.  The 2012 NHL all star game will be held in Ottawa and there is a lot of excitement surrounding that.

Matchup Thoughts: The Kings have won their last 3 games played against the Senators, and 4 straight at Staples Center. If the Kings are going to continue that streak by getting a win tonight, they better put in some effort. Some Kings players just did not seem like they were ready to play on Saturday. Scoring more than one goal tonight would go a long way as well. The Kings chances look good against Craig Anderson; in 8 games played Anderson is 1-5-3 with a goals against average of 3.44.
