ST. LOUIS -- The Kings will play an afternoon game at Staples Center during the second round of the NHL playoffs, according to the schedule released late Thursday by the league following the end of the final first-round games.

Unlike the NHL, which announces everything in Eastern time, we’ll list the Kings’ starts in Pacific time because, well, we live on Pacific time.

Game 1 will be Saturday at 4:30 p.m. at the Scottrade Center in St. Louis, and Game 2 will be on Monday at 6 p.m.

The Kings will return to Staples Center on Thursday for a 7 p.m. start and again on Sunday for a noon start.

Here’s the full series schedule, with TV information. Remember, Bob Miller and Jim Fox won’t be calling the games but they’ll be involved with postgame shows and other activities. All games will be aired on radio on KTLK 1150.

Game 1 at St. Louis, Saturday, 4:30 p.m., NBCSN.
