On Saturday, the Los Angeles Kings will enter the second round of the 2012 Stanley Cup playoffs. Much like the first round, the Kings will be heavy underdogs as they go up against the odds-on favorites to win the Western Conference, the St. Louis Blues.
Game 1 will take place on Saturday in St. Louis, as the Kings will try to start the Conference Semifinals the same way they began the first round -- by winning the first game on the road. The Blues defeated the San Jose Sharks in the first round to advance.
The Blues and the Kings played one another four times in the 2011-12 NHL regular season. The Kings won three of those games and outscored the Blues 9-3 over those same four games.
The game will begin at 4:30 p.m. PT and will be televised nationally on NBC SportsNet (formerly Vs.). You can listen to the radio broadcast on KTLK 1150 AM.
