How to Watch Kings vs. Sharks Game 1: TV, Live Stream, Game Time and More

Tune in, it'll be better than any other series you could be watching instead.

Welcome to the playoffs! The Los Angeles Kings begin their series with the San Jose Sharks tonight. Here's how to catch Game 1 of what will be the first round's most competitive, most entertaining, and sixth-most heralded series. It all kicks off at 7:30 Pacific time tonight, though that could get pushed back a couple minutes if the Florida Panthers and New York Islanders require additional time to finish their contest.

If you are in the Los Angeles market: tonight's game is on Fox Sports West, with Nick Nickson and Jim Fox on the call. Radio coverage, as always, is on KABC AM 790 with Jon Rosen and Daryl Evans. (Remaining games will all be on either Fox Sports West or Prime Ticket, so yes, LA, you can watch our broadcasters throughout Round 1.)

If you are in the San Jose market: you're getting your local announcers, Randy Hahn and Jamie Baker, on CSN Bay Area. Radio coverage is on KFOX 98.5 FM.

If you are anywhere else in the United States: tonight's game is on CNBC, of all networks. Because NBC uses Comcast crews whenever possible, the rest of the country is ALSO getting Randy Hahn and Jamie Baker on their TV broacasts.

If you are in Canada: tonight's game is on CBC in English and TVA Sports in French. Should be fun!

LIVE STREAM: You can watch this broadcast through NBC's Live Extra app, or the NBC Sports website. Here's the live stream link, which should go live around 7 PM Pacific.

Note that and NHL Center Ice do not work in the postseason. The radio feeds can be found free via the NHL app or the NHL website, however, and SiriusXM will also have radio coverage. Enjoy the game!
