When: 7.

On the air: TV: FS West; Radio: 790.

Update: The Kings, who have won back-to-back games after losing three straight, didn't practice Friday and instead posed for their team photo. Center Anze Kopitar, whose scoring has slipped this season, contributed a goal and four points in those last two games. The Kings' penalty killers were three for three in Thursday's 4-3 shootout victory over Montreal and are 33 for 35 over the last 14 games. Before the game, the Kings will unveil a statue of Luc Robitaille at Star Plaza outside Staples Center. The ceremony will start at 6 p.m. and is open to the public. It also will be shown on screens inside the arena. Penguins center Evgeni Malkin took a six-game point streak into the team's game at Anaheim on Friday, with six goals and 12 points in that span.
