The Los Angeles Kings used a strong stretch run to qualify for the postseason, but they have the top-seeded Vancouver Canucks to deal with now that they're there.

After struggling for most of the season, the Los Angeles Kings found a way to sneak into the 2012 NHL playoffs with a strong stretch run, fueled in part by trade deadline moves. Their welcome present to the postseason? The top-ranked Vancouver Canucks, who are looking to erase the bitter taste of 2011 disappointment from their mouths after falling in Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Finals to the Boston Bruins.
