Los Angeles at San Josť: First Round Playoffs

This is now a very real possibility as San Josť is floundering a month earlier than usual while Phoenix is apparently untouchable, having trashed Chicago down 2 goals in the third period last night, for eight in a row, leaving them only one point behind San Josť for the Pacific Division lead (!).

Now, San Josť does indeed have one game in hand on Phoenix; however, with four losses in a row, that game in hand doesn't mean much at all.

So enough of the preamble.

The Kings won the season series against the Sharks this year; however, the last two games: the Sharks were superior. Given the Sharks' horrific playoff history, I actually think this is a good first round match for the Kings. They match up well with the Sharks and in one game trashed their goalie (in San Josť). This might be the way to go. I really think a second round matchup with Phoenix would also be awesome.
