Dust off those "Beat L.A." signs the Sharks are getting ready for the playoffs.

After Sunday's ups and downs, we finally know who the No. 2 ranked San Jose is going to play in round one of the Stanley Cup. The Los Angeles Kings.

Here's the schedule:

  • Game 1: Thursday, 7 p.m. San Jose (TV: Versus)
  • Game 2: Saturday, 7 p.m. San Jose (TV: Versus)
  • Game 3: Tuesday, April 19, 7:30 p.m. Los Angeles (TV: Versus)
  • Game 4: Thursday, April 21, 7:30 p.m. Los Angeles (TV: CSN California)
  • Game 5: Saturday, April 23, 7:30 p.m. San Jose (TV: Versus)*
  • Game 6: Monday, April 25, Time TBD, Los Angeles*
  • Game 7: Wednesday, April 27, Time TBD, San Jose*

* Game if needed.

The two teams split in the season series, each one winning three games. The good news for the Sharks, the Kings will most likely be without their two top scorers. Anze Kopitar and Justin Williams are both banged up.

The Sharks and Kings have never met in the playoffs. This is the first year all three California teams have made it into the post season at the same time.
