While first reports of the Kings’ NHL playoff-opening series against the Vancouver Canucks that begins tonight is that all the games would be on NBC Sports Channel, the team has come forth with a patchwork remedy to fix that.

Games 1 and 2 from Vancouver are on KCOP-Channel 13 — not in high def, unfortunately.

Game 3 back in L.A. on Sunday goes to Fox Sports West.

April 18th’s Game 4, however, couldn’t find a local home — the Dodgers, Angels and Clippers occupy Prime, FSW and Channel 13 respectively — so it’s on NBC Sports Channel, which won’t black it out now in L.A. If the Flyers-Penguins game that begins at 4:30 p.m. runs long, NBC Sports Channel is obligated to leave it to join the start of the Kings-Canucks contest.

For those who can’t find NBC Sports Channel yet, try this link: http://nbcsports.msnbc.com/id/46907840/ns/sports-nhl/

Games 5 (April 22) and 7 (April 26) have been secured by Fox Sports West, while Game 6 (April 24) will go to Prime Ticket, if necessary.

Confusing enough?
