There will be four games in the Stanley Cup Playoffs on Thursday night, with the Los Angeles Kings traveling to the SAP Center to take on the San Jose Sharks in the final game of the day.
It was just a year ago that San Jose was eliminated at the hands of the Kings, so they will be looking to avoid the same fate this time around.
There are questions about who will be in goal for the Sharks to start the series, but it doesn’t seem to be worrying the netminders.
“Either way you’ve got to prepare yourself to be ready to play,” Antti Niemi said, via ESPN.com.
