Good morning, San Jose

A quiet morning in the Silicon Valley will grow increasingly cacophonous in the lead-up to the irregular 6:00 pm start at HP Pavilion, where the Kings and Sharks will meet for Game 3 of their Western Conference Semifinals series. This is the first time since the inaugural season that Los Angeles will take a 2-0 series lead on the road for Game 3. In the first round of the 1968 Stanley Cup Playoffs, the Kings won their first two playoff games in franchise history before ultimately falling in seven games to the Minnesota North Stars.
