Kings fighting for playoff spot as they host Oilers

After a sizzling start to the season, the Los Angeles Kings find themselves on the outside of the playoffs looking in if the season ended this weekend.

Fortunately, the Kings have 21 games remaining to climb into the top eight and qualify for the postseason. They'll try to make up ground Saturday night against the visiting Edmonton Oilers at Staples Center.

Los Angeles (33-23-5) is one point behind the St. Louis Blues for the second wild card from the Western Conference, and two points behind the Anaheim Ducks for third place in the Pacific Division.
