The well-rested Los Angeles Kings and Phoenix Coyotes will get back into action Sunday in the opener of the Western Conference final.
The game will start at 8 p.m. ET at Glendale, Ariz., the NHL announced Thursday.
Game 2 goes Tuesday with a 9 p.m. ET start time in the desert.
The Kings haven't played since last Saturday when they finished off the St. Louis Blues in four games. The Coyotes have been off since Monday when they eliminated the Nashville Predators in five games.
The league also announced the opening two games of the Eastern Conference final -- next Monday and Wednesday, both starting at 8 p.m.
The New Jersey Devils will open at home should the Washington Capitals win Game 7 of their Eastern semifinal against New York on Saturday. Should the Rangers win the series, they would open at home against the Devils.
