2011 NHL Schedule: Los Angeles Kings Come Home For Three Games This Week

Since beating Dallas on Oct. 27, the Los Angeles Kings have lost five straight games including Monday night's loss to San Jose, 4-2. Already with a suspect offense, the defense has slipped recently as well, aiding in the tailspin. The Kings only give up 2.1 goals per game, good for 5th in the league but only score that same amount per game, putting them 28th.

The Kings are home all week, starting on Tuesday, November 8, with a visit from the Nashville Predators. The Predators have won four of their last five games. The game will start at 7:30 PM and will be televised on Fox Sports West.

On Thursday, November 10, the Kings get a visit from the Vancouver Canucks. The Canucks just halted a two-game losing streak with a win over Chicago. The game will start at 7:30 PM and will air on Fox Sports West.

The Kings will end the week with a Saturday, November 12 visit from the Minnesota Wild, who are second in the league in goals against. The game will start at 7:30 PM and will air on Fox Sports West.
