The Los Angeles Kings' series against the San Jose Sharks may have been a tough one, but they aren't going to have much time to relax.
That's because they will open the Western Conference Finals against the Chicago Blackhawks Saturday afternoon in the Windy City. They will play again the next evening in a back-to-back that is sure to test their resiliency and endurance.
Here is the schedule for the next series, with all times being listed as Pacific Daylight Time, and Games 5-7 will only be played if necessary:
Game 1: 6/1 at Chicago 2pm (NBCSN)
Game 2: 6/2 at Chicago 5pm (NBCSN)
Game 3: 6/4 vs. Chicago 6pm (NBCSN)
