Update: The Kings opened a four-game homestand Saturday with a 2-1 loss to Chicago, leaving them with only one victory in their last four games. They’ve scored only seven goals in that span and are one for 16 on the power play in those games. Jonathan Quick is scheduled to start in goal for the Kings. Left wing Dustin Penner, who has missed seven games because of a hand injury, was cleared for full practice but isn’t expected to play. The Sharks have won seven of their last 10 games but most recently lost to Vancouver, 3-2, on Saturday.
