The 2015 NHL Stadium Series was an outdoor regular season National Hockey League (NHL) game, part of the Stadium Series of games held at football or baseball stadiums. The Los Angeles Kings played against the San Jose Sharks at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California on February 21, 2015.[2] This was the only game in the Stadium Series during the 2014–15 NHL regular season (as opposed to multiple games in 2014 and 2016). The game coincided with NBC Sports' "Hockey Day in America" coverage,[3] and aired on NBCSN in the United States, while it was the second game of CBC's Hockey Night in Canada doubleheader.

The Kings defeated the Sharks 2–1 on a goal by Marian Gaborik early in the third period to extend the Kings' winning streak to seven games, while the Sharks fell to 2–5–1 in their last eight games. With the victory, the Kings overtook the Sharks for the final wild card spot in the Western Conference.

Initial announcement[]

After the success of the 2014 NHL Stadium Series game at Dodger Stadium, it was widely rumored that there was going to be an outdoor game in Northern California with Levi's Stadium, AT&T Park and Stanford Stadium as the three most likely options to host the outdoor game. On August 6, 2014, it was officially announced that Levi's Stadium was going to host the game between the Sharks and the Kings. The NHL was originally reportedly looking to hold four outdoor games, including the Winter Classic.[4] Besides Levi's Stadium, other possible sites for the Stadium Series games included Coors Field (Denver),[5] Gillette Stadium (Foxborough, Massachusetts),[6] Target Field (Minneapolis),[7] Beaver Stadium (Pennsylvania State University),[8] and an as-yet-unnamed venue in the Phoenix area.[9] Foxborough, Minneapolis and Denver will instead host 2016 outdoor contests.[10]
