Kings Open Playoffs Against Sharks

The Los Angeles Kings and San Jose Sharks face off in the postseason for the third time since 2011. The Kings won the regular-season series with a 3-1-1 record.

Home-ice advantage, which belongs to the Sharks in this Western Conference First Round series, has played a key role in this rivalry. The Kings defeated the Sharks last season in a seven-game series in which five games were decided by one goal and the home team won each game. The home team went 4-1-0 during the regular season, with the Kings beating the Sharks 1-0 at SAP Center on Jan. 27.

Although Los Angeles is the lowest-scoring team in the postseason (206 goals), its top line has jelled since the arrival of forward Marian Gaborik at the NHL Trade Deadline. Gaborik (3-9-12), Anze Kopitar (7-5-12) and Justin Williams (2-4-6) combined for 30 points in the Kings' final 11 regular-season games, and Gaborik carries a four-game point streak into Game 1.

The Los Angeles Sports Council is a non-profit civic organization whose primary purpose is to promote economic development through sports in the Los Angeles/Orange County area.

On behalf of the community, the Sports Council bids against other cities for the right to host major sporting events, often staging or helping to stage events after successful bids.

Founded in 1988, the Sports Council's efforts represent more than $1 billion in overall economic impact for the region and range from NCAA Championships to the Super Bowl, and from the U.S Olympic Trials to the World Cup.

The Council also works in support of each of the area's established sports teams and facilities.
