The lone Stadium Series game this season sees the L.A. Kings battle the San Jose Sharks tonight at Levi’s Stadium.

It’s the fourth of five meetings between the two clubs.

The Kings will look to stretch their win streak to a season-best seven games while the Sharks try to avoid a third loss in four outings.

The Sharks currently own the second wild card position in the Western Conference with 68 points, but the Kings are two points behind and have three games in hand.

San Jose has won two of the first three games.

Patrick Marleau has two goals and two assists during the season series while goaltender Antti Niemi is 2-1 with a .945 save percentage and 1.69 G.A.A. in three games against the Kings this season.

Anze Kopitar also has a goal and three assists in three games against the Sharks this season. Goaltender Jonathan Quick is 1-2 with a .890 save percentage and and 3.06 G.A.A. against San Jose this season.

L.A. has 16 players who have played in an outdoor game previously including 15 who were a part of last season’s Stadium Series game between the Kings and Anaheim Ducks at Dodger Stadium.

The fifth and final meeting between the two clubs goes April 11 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
