Even before the last NHL regular season game is played on Saturday night, the eight teams that will make up the Western Conference playoff seedings are checking out the dates when their facilities are available for home dates.
With none of the eight seeds locked in stone, there are still plenty of match-up possibilities going into the final day's action. Vancouver and St. Louis are the only two squads in the West that have claimed home ice in the first round so there are still plenty of moving parts.
We have done a quick review of the eight buildings that teams in the West call home and have listed dates that have other events scheduled for the period of time first round games could be scheduled. Bear in mind that some events could be rescheduled.
The Los Angeles Kings appear to have the greatest potential for conflict with both the Lakers and Clippers sharing the Staples Center.
Keep these dates in mind when the first round schedules are released on Sunday. Make the jump for the complete list...
