The LA Kings didn't exactly finish their season on a roll. With two wins they could have won their division and opened the Stanley Cup playoffs at home for the first time in more than a decade. Instead they lost both games to the older, pluckier San Jose Sharks. As a result, the Kings draw the worst playoffs matchup they could have imagined.
They open the first series in Vancouver against the best team in the west — a rematch of the playoff series the Kings lost in 2010.
