WATCH LIVE: Los Angeles Kings at San Jose Sharks

It’s rarely a bad time when you get to soak in the sun, fun and shared disdain that’s a part of “The Battle of California.”

In Monday’s case, Pacific Division-leader the Los Angeles Kings take on the division’s third-ranked squad in the San Jose Sharks.

If the Sharks want to make an unlikely surge to the title, winning this game in regulation would be the first domino in a series of events that would require some luck. Either way, this game is important for them when it comes to jockeying for at least one round of home-ice advantage.

Both the Kings and Sharks want to get the best of the Anaheim Ducks in different ways, which means they want to grab two standings points in this one.
