This will be the first NHL playoff meeting between two California teams since the 1969 Western Conference Quarterfinals, when the Los Angeles Kings beat the Oakland Seals in seven games (that was the ONLY previous in-state playoff matchup until now). The last time a California playoff matchup occurred in the NHL, NBA or MLB was in 2002, when the Angels and Giants met in the World Series.

The Ducks-Sharks matchup features two of the most successful teams in the NHL since the lockout (start of the 2005-06 season). Since that time, the Ducks have posted a 180-107-41 record, with four playoff appearances, two 100+ point seasons, a Pacific Division title (2007) and Stanley Cup championship (2007). No NHL team has won more playoff rounds (6 – also Detroit) than Anaheim since the 2005-06 season.

The Sharks have posted a 197-94-37 mark since the 2005-06 season, including three consecutive 100+ point seasons, four playoff appearances and two Pacific Division titles (2008 & 2009).  

The Ducks have an all time record of 41-41-8 lifetime vs. San Jose, including marks of 18-22-5 at Honda Center and 23-19-3 at HP Pavilion. The Sharks won the 2008-09 season series, 4-2.
