Where they stand
Sharks: 12-8-6, 30 points, 3rd Pacific Division, 8th Western Conference
Kings: 14-10-2, 30 points, 2nd Pacific Division, 6th Western Conference

Vitals
Sharks
Goals per game: 2.23 (29th)
Goals-against per game: 2.35 (4th)
Power play: 18.3 percent (12th)
Penalty kill: 86.6 percent (3rd)
Kings
Goals per game: 2.88 (10th)
Goals-against per game: 2.62 (13th)
Power play: 19.8 percent (11th)
Penalty kill: 80.2 percent (18th)

Probable lines
Sharks
Logan Couture - Joe Thornton – Brent Burns
Ryane Clowe - Patrick Marleau – Joe Pavelski
James Sheppard - Scott Gomez – Tommy Wingels
Andrew Desjardins – Michael Handzus – Adam Burish
Matt Irwin – Dan Boyle
Douglas Murray – Brad Stuart
Marc-Edouard Vlasic – Justin Braun
Antti Niemi
Alex Stalock

Kings
Justin Williams – Anze Kopitar – Dustin Brown
Dustin Penner – Mike Richards – Jeff Carter
Trevor Lewis – Jarret Stoll – Dwight King
Kyle Clifford – Colin Fraser – Jordan Nolan
Jake Muzzin – Drew Doughty
Rob Scuderi – Slava Voynov
Alec Martinez – Keaton Ellerby
Jonathan Quick
Jonathan Bernier

Keep an eye on…
Sharks: Logan Couture. The Sharks’ center-turned-top line winger has six goals in his last nine games, and seems to be thoroughly enjoying playing on a line with Brent Burns. Couture has 12 goals on the season, just one behind Patrick Marleau for the team lead, and is heating up. He’s tied with Marleau for second on the Sharks in scoring with 21 points.
Kings: Dustin Brown. The Kings’ captain was relentless on Thursday even after his team trailed by three goals in the third period, and his goal and play late nearly helped lead Los Angeles to a comeback. Brown has five goals in his last three games, and in 50 career games against the Sharks, has 14 goals and 16 assists.

Last game
Logan Couture had two goals and an assist, and Brent Burns added two points as the Sharks beat the Kings on Thursday night at HP Pavilion, 4-3. Burns’ first period goal and his takeaway and assist on Couture’s third period marker sandwiched a pair of second period power play goals by Couture and Matt Irwin. Dustin Brown scored twice, including one on the power play, and Dwight King’s marker with 3:20 to go brought Los Angeles back to within one, but Antti Niemi shut the door after that. The Sharks’ goalie recorded 34 saves to pick up his 11th win, while Jonathan Quick was pulled in favor of Jonathan Bernier after giving up three goals on 12 shots. Bernier took the loss with eight saves on nine shots.

Injuries
Sharks: Marty Havlat (lower body) is questionable. Thomas Greiss (neck) is out.
Kings: Willie Mitchell (knee surgery) and Matt Greene (back) are on injured reserve.

Season series
This is the second of four meetings between the Pacific Division rivals after the Sharks took the first on Thursday, 4-3. The Kings return to HP Pavilion on April 16, and the teams conclude the regular season against one another in Southern California on April 27.   The Sharks are 64-46-7-6 all-time vs. Los Angeles.

Quoteable
“We obviously needed all of them. A bit of a relief, or milestone for us, however you want to put it. Now, we’ve got to go do it again on the road for the next 10 days.”
– Todd McLellan, on his team scoring four goals on Thursday

"Sharks: Marty Havlat... is questionable. "

That's an understatement...

Maybe Clowe will get his first goal tonight and the team starts a run. What are the odds of Burns playing D again this season?

Havlat has been nothing short of a major disappointment. Interesting what he would fetch?

Believe he has a full NMC so unless he wants to go somewhere specific, he isn't moving.

It will be fitting if Patty gets a couple tonight, just because LN started the GDT.

If the coach lets the man do his thing and plays him with linemates that compliment him instead of forcing him to play a stupid restrictive system , he'll be more than fine
