The Metrolink website is usually prety good... oh well..
My handy dandy Metrolink (paper) schedule shows Metrolink train #661 leaving Fullerton at 9:54 AM. You cannot buy tix on the train - get there by 9:35 or so and get tix at vending machine (there is no ML ticket agent in Fullerton station - only an Amtrak agent). Train arrives at LAUS (Los Angeles Union Station) at 10:40.
See post #4 above for how to navigate from LAUS to Staples Center.
ML return to Oceanside leaves LAUS at 4:40 PM. So lots of time after the game. (well, hopefully no 3 OT and all)
I'm guessing Amtrak may have earlier return train towards San Diego, but they are more $$ thah ML. But to save some time it may be worth your while. (maybe try Amtrak schedule online or when you arrive at LAUS, see the Amtrak tix office for Sunday schedule).
