Wednesday, 05.15.2013 / 4:01 PM / Kings vs Sharks - 2013 SCP Conference Semifinals

San Jose Sharks forward Raffi Torres will have a hearing with the NHL Department of Player Safety at the NHL's New York office Thursday for a hit on Jarret Stoll of the Los Angeles Kings in Game 1 of the Western Conference Semifinal series on Tuesday. He is suspended pending the outcome of the hearing.

Torres was offered the opportunity for an in-person hearing as required by provisions of the Collective Bargaining Agreement for any suspension that can exceed five games.

Torres received a minor penalty for charging on the hit, which occurred at 19:02 of the second period. Stoll did not return to the game.

SAN JOSE, Calif. -- For Logan Couture, there was "a different feeling" when he arrived at the rink Monday morning for the San Jose Sharks' fourth straight practice since sweeping the Vancouver Canucks in the Western Conference quarterfinals.

No more doubt about what's next.

The Sharks learned Monday night that they'd face the defending Stanley Cup champion Los Angeles Kings in the conference semifinals. Early Tuesday, the NHL announced that the Sharks and Kings would play Game 1 Tuesday night at Staples Center.

The series opener can't come soon enough for the Sharks, who haven't played a game since May 7.

SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Growing up in the small town of Aneroid, Saskatchewan, Patrick Marleau always was the fastest kid on the ice.

Now that he's four months shy of his 34th birthday and in his 15th NHL season with the San Jose Sharks, not much has changed for Marleau.

Marleau used his sprinter's speed to score the game-winning goal in overtime when the Sharks completed a sweep of the Vancouver Canucks in their Western Conference Quarterfinal series.

Los Angeles

 Seed: 527-16-559 Pts.

San Jose

 Seed: 625-16-757 Pts.
The Los Angeles Kings and San Jose Sharks have been regular-season rivals for years, but this will mark just the second time the California teams have met in the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

The defending Stanley Cup champion Kings got off to a slow start to their title defense, dropping the first two games in the Western Conference Quarterfinals to the St. Louis Blues before roaring back to win the next four. All six games were one-goal affairs, including two decided in overtime.

The Sharks forged a much simpler path to the conference semifinals, sweeping the Vancouver Canucks, including a pair of overtime wins.

About the only thing you can say for sure regarding this series is to expect close games. Six of the past 10 meetings between the teams have been one-goal games, with four going to overtime.

SAN JOSE -- Four days after finishing a sweep of the Vancouver Canucks in the Western Conference Quarterfinals, the San Jose Sharks continued Saturday to prepare for a second-round test in the Stanley Cup Playoffs against a yet-to-be-determined opponent.

The Sharks are down to two possibilities: the reigning Stanley Cup champion Los Angeles Kings, or the top-seeded Chicago Blackhawks, who won the Stanley Cup in 2010.

If the Anaheim Ducks defeat the Detroit Red Wings in Game 7 of their quarterfinal series Sunday at Honda Center, the Sharks will open the second round at Chicago. If the Red Wings defeat the Ducks, the Sharks will open at Los Angeles.

Quote of the Day

It's cool when you think about how many great American players have played the game and the two players that were at that 18-game point streak and what they've done in their careers. It's pretty cool right now, but it was kind of overshadowed by the loss.
