Just like the Tampa Bay Lightning and Toronto Maple Leafs are meeting in the first round for the second year in a row, so are the Edmonton Oilers and Los Angeles Kings.

Last season the series went to 7 games, which was eventually won by the Edmonton Oilers, but the Kings feel like they have a good chance this year.

Last year when the two teams met, the Kings were missing their top defenceman in Drew Doughty, who can make a huge difference in a playoff series and shutting down Connor McDavid.

Their series starts tonight at 10pm, and Drew Doughty had some stern words when he was asked about playing against McDavid and also McDavid's hit on Mikey Anderson just a few weeks ago:



"If we get a chance to smack him, we're going to do it." Doughty said to reporters on Monday.



Fans also funny enough were quick to point out that the Kings will need to catch him first:
