Jarret Stoll celebrates teammate Willie Mitchell’s goal against Vancouver’s Roberto Luongo in the second period of Game 1 of their Western Conference quarterfinal game in Vancouver on April 11.
Since the current NHL lockout knocked out a host of games that Fox Sports West and Prime Ticket were prepared to air, starting last Friday, the networks have put together a schedule of “classic” edited-down games from last season that will go on instead.
For the Kings, it’s start with the first-round 2012 Stanley Cup playoff games against Vancouver. It goes like this:
Wednesday, 7 p.m.: Game 1 at Vancouver, a 4-2 victory
Wednesday, 9:30 p.m.: Game 2 at Vancouver, Dustin Brown’s two short-handed goals and Jonathan Quick’s 46 saves put the Kings up 2-0.
Wednesday, Oct. 24, 7 p.m.: Game 3 home vs. Vancouver: Brown scores the only goal and Quick made 41 saves, and some how the Kings are up 3-0 on the No. 1 seeds.
Wednesday, Oct. 24, 9:30 p.m.: Game 5 at Vancouver: Jarret Stoll’s OT goal clinched the series.
The Ducks are going farther back in the time machine — to 2003, their Stanley Cup title march — on Prime Ticket:
The four so far set:
Tonight, 7 p.m.: Ducks at Detroit, Round 1 Game 1, April 10, 2003. Ducks win in triple overtime.
Tonight, 9:30 p.m.: Ducks vs. Detroit, Round 1 Game 4, April 16, 2003. Ducks sweep the Red Wings out of the playoffs with an overtime victory. Jean-Sebastien Giguere saved 165 of 171 shots in the series.
Tuesday, Oct. 23, 7 p.m.: Ducks at Dallas, Round 2 Game 2, April 26, 2003. Mike Leclerc’s overtime goal gave the Ducks a 2-0 series lead.
Tuesday, Oct. 23, 9:30 p.m.: Ducks vs. Dallas, Round 2 Game 6, May 5, 2003. Sandis Ozolinsh’s late goal clinched the series and launched the Ducks into the conference finals.
