Columbus (28-36-7) at Los Angeles (23-34-13) 10:30 pm EDT

LOS ANGELES (Ticker) -- The Columbus Blue Jackets have actually been playing reasonably well lately, but it is too late.

Columbus concludes its four-game West Coast trip against the Los Angeles Kings on Saturday.

The Blue Jackets have won four of their last seven games but have been eliminated from playoff competition and have to be satisfied with spoiler status the rest of the season.

Columbus was shut out for the 14th time on Friday in a 3-0 loss to San Jose.

While the Blue Jackets have had trouble scoring goals, the Kings have had trouble preventing them. They have surrendered 246 goals, the third-highest total in the NHL.

Los Angeles has 14 losses in overtime or shootouts, the most in the league. It lost, 4-3, in a nine-round shootout to Chicago on Thursday.
