Home ice meant little to the Los Angeles Kings last season when they stormed through the postseason as an eighth seed to win the Stanley Cup. They’re hoping Staples Center means everything in Game 7 of an exhausting playoff with the San Jose Sharks. The Kings host the Sharks tonight ( 6 p.m., NBC Sports) in the finale to a second-round matchup featuring six straight home victories. Los Angeles has won 13 consecutive home games over the past two months and seven straight home playoff games dating to last year’s Cup clincher. This all-California series is ending just as both teams expected before it began two weeks ago. – AP
