The Los Angeles Kings have fallen into the last Wild Card spot in the Western Conference. That's despite winning four straight heading into Thursday's game against Edmonton.

Suddenly, the Kings have to worry about the Blues behind them. While Los Angeles is five points ahead, St. Louis is 7-2-1 in their last ten games. A sudden cold streak can knock the Kings out of playoff contention if they're not careful.
