Brad Stuart knows that the San Jose Sharks have their work cut out for them against the Los Angeles Kings.
"They're a hard team," Stuart said. "They're going to play hard, and every line is going to throw some physicality at you. They're going to make it tough, and they don't give you any ice for free, you're going to have to work for it." The Kings are also obviously the defending Stanley Cup champions. Stuart has won it all too, which is something most of his teammates can't say. Stuart expects that experience will give the Kings an edge, but he added, "Whether you've won it before or not, every team is going to be prepared and gunning for you because they want to move on."
