I think you are right. It was a fluke last year, but nonetheless the Kings won the cup last year... and the Sharks??? Maybe this year? Is this your year? Is it the year? Or will you end up just like Vancouver?

They said the same about the Kings last year.

A 7 game series is tiresome and now a couple of days off has become a problem as well !

Not from what I saw so far on this board. Mostly Sharks in 5 or 6. Also, the Sharks had have much more playoff experience than the Kings. The Sharks has been in on every playoff the past ten years and the Kings barely made it in the past 3 years, and was lucky to have other teams gave us the cup last year. So, the Sharks are more seasoned than the Kings and no you can't be an underdog.

Yeah, because it's the Kings players and staff members thoughts that are being expressed by message board posters.

Your team won the STANLEY CUP.. and is pretty much still intact, your team has way more experience.

Seriously, are you trying to make it sound like the Kings are garbage and you're the underdog?

Sorry! I thought it was you who made that comment.

No, I was being sarcasm, and I didn't use the sarcasm button because I thought you would have figured it out.
Pease Bro and may the best team win.
Go Kings!!!

So much playoff success comes down to health. Right now kopi is hurting and Greene is out. This is bigger than most ppl think. Last season kings played against two teams without elite forwards. They also played a yotes team sans raffi-who has a knack for taking out contenders. (See Chicago 2011, 12; San Jose 2006)

Sharks don't have an archillies heal either, no Huskins or Seminov on d. We finally have two elite lines with the couture maturing--a must for winning the cup. Sharks in 6

I really hope Greene is healthy for this series. I don't want to see what kind of damage the Sharks' forwards can do with Muzzin's turnovers.

Not the matchup I was hoping for in the 2nd round, another similar sized team which has given the Kings trouble over the last few years. Sharks looking like the Kings did last year after the trade deadline with a chemistry make-over, total. This could be a long, drawn out one. I won't go negative Nancy, so I'll say Kings in 7.

Only a rivalry if you've lost to team in PO's. So, SJ-Ana= rivalry. (Pres trophy)
LA-SJ= no rivalry for SJ. Maybe for LA

I'll always hate the Ducks and was so glad they hit the links via DRW!

Is that like feeding meat to Kesler?

SJ doesn't stand a chance against the Champs. Don't even belong in the same league!
Kings in an easy 4. Then they rest and sweep the Wings too. No problem. SJ has no answer to Kopitar, Brown and Doughty.
Oh well. At least it wasn't 1st round this year.

I dislike the Ducks far more than the Kings. But hey, 2nd time in 3 years that we've met in the playoffs, things can change.

Skating, but gingerly. Return is unknown.

Demers looks like he'll be back. Burish is out for the series.
