On Sunday, the full schedule was announced for the 2012 NHL postseason. The San Jose Sharks are the No. 7 seed in the Western Conference and as such, will be playing the No. 2 seed in the conference, the St. Louis Blues.
All seven games -- should the series go the distance -- will air on CSN California, with Sharks pregame shows starting on the channel a half-hour before the puck is schedule to drop for each game, according to Kevin Kurz of CSN.
This means that for at least the first round of the playoffs, Bay Area fans will be able to watch the same Sharks broadcasts we're used to and will get to hear Randy Hahn and Drew Remenda calling the plays, as per usual.
And here's that complete schedule of the first round once again, just in case you missed it.
Thursday, April 12: Sharks @ Blues, 4:30 p.m. PST
Saturday, April 14: Sharks @ Blues, 4:30 p.m. PST
