The Pacific Division champions the Phoenix Coyotes are headed to the Western Conference final, with just one more team to beat before going on to try for their first Stanley Cup in franchise history. The team standing in their way are their division rivals and No. 8 seed the Los Angeles Kings.
The Coyotes will have home ice advantage for the best-of-seven series that begins on Sunday, but the Kings have waited until the postseason to play their best hockey of the year. Los Angeles has already defeated the No. 1 and No. 2 seeds in the conference so the Coyotes will need to be wary.
The puck will drop for Game 1 at 5:00 p.m. PT and will be televised on NBC Sports Network (formerly Vs.).
