Kings Vs. Wild Preview: Los Angeles Trying To Get Back In The Win Column

The Minnesota Wild will host the Los Angeles Kings on Tuesday night. Both teams have been experiencing struggles as of late and are hoping to get back on the right track.


The Los Angeles Kings wrap up a quick two-game road trip Tuesday night as they head to the Twin Cities to take on the Minnesota Wild. The Kings are currently hoping that all of their offense didn't dry up during Saturday's 4-0 shutout of the Chicago Blackhawks.

The Wild have suffered a second-half collapse that hasn't been pretty, falling to fourth place in the Northwest Division. A comparison with the Kings is striking, as the Wild are just three points behind Los Angeles in the Western Conference standings and the Kings have been dealing with their own ineptitude as of late. In case you hadn't noticed, the Kings are also in fourth place in their own Pacific Division.

The teams have been playing remarkably similar hockey over the past couple of weeks. The Wild are 3-6-1 over their last 10 games, while the Kings are 3-5-2 over that same stretch.

The puck will drop at 4:30 p.m. PT on Tuesday night. The game will be televised on NBC-SN (formerly Vs.), or you can listen to the radio broadcast on KTLK 1150 AM.
