Sharks vs. Kings in the first round. It felt like this matchup was almost inevitable. The two teams had met in the playoffs three times previously, with the Kings prevailing in the most recent two - including the infamous 2014 series.
The San Jose Sharks got out to a commanding 2-0 lead on the road, but the Kings struck back in overtime in game three. However, 2016 is not 2014. The Sharks won Game 4. In Game 5, the Sharks went out to a 3-0 lead, but the Kings tied it going into the third period. The squad responded by scoring three goals in the third to win the series 4 games to 1.
The handshakes were definitely pretty sweet.
