Sharks Face Kings in Opening Round of Stanley Cup Playoffs

Because Chicago lost to Detroit this afternoon, the Sharks will face the Los Angeles Kings in the opening round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Below is the head-to-head match-up during the season (from Working the Corners blog):

The Sharks were 3-1-2 against the Kings this season, losing twice in shootouts that will not be a factor in the playoffs. Here are the results of each game:
