Midway through February and looking at the last couple months of the 2011-12 NHL season, the Los Angeles Kings will receive a bit of a reprieve this week, with just two home games on the schedule as they continue to chase the San Jose Sharks in the Pacific Division.
On Thursday, Feb. 16, the Kings will host the third-place Phoenix Coyotes, who are surging as of late and now just three points behind the Kings in the division. The game will begin at 7:30 p.m. PT and will air on FS-W.
The Kings will then have a day off before hosting the Calgary Flames on Saturday, February 18. The Flames are in second place in the Northwest Division, but have little chance of catching the first-place Vancouver Canucks. Saturday's game will begin at 7:00 p.m. PT and will also air on FS-W.
