The Sharks took out the Kings who a few years ago knocked them out of the playoffs after holding a 3-0 series lead. The Kings would go on to lift lord Stanleyâ€™s cup. With that monkey off the back the Sharks mean business pushing forward, and theyâ€™re taking on the Predators who just finished upsetting the Stanley Cup favorite Anaheim Ducks.
