The Sharks and Kings do not like each other

Stephen Dunn

Fight! Fight! Fight!

When you get to the Stanley Cup Playoffs, the intensity is already turned up to 11. So when you pit two divisional teams who already don't like each other in best-of-seven series, it can have a tendency to turn into total anarchy on ice.

It took the Los Angeles Kings and San Jose Sharks about five minutes to reach that level in Game 1 of their series on Thursday.

It all started when San Jose's Mike Brown lowered the boom on Slava Voynov, knocking him into Kings goalie Jonathan Quick.

Settle in, because it's probably only to get more physical from here.
