The Kings’ Western Conference finals series against the Phoenix Coyotes will open on Sunday at 5 p.m. Pacific time at Jobing.com Arena in Glendale, Ariz., with Game 2 to follow on Tuesday at 6 p.m., the NHL announced Thursday.

Both games will be aired on NBC Sports Network.

However, the league didn’t announce the dates or times for the Kings’ first two home games or any other games beyond Game 2, citing "building issues that are being worked through" that prevent a full schedule from being determined.

The East finals will open with Game 1 on Monday and Game 2 on Wednesday. The New Jersey Devils have advanced, but their opponent won’t be determined until Saturday, when the New York Rangers face the Washington Capitals in Game 7 of their second-round series.

If the Rangers win, they would have home-ice advantage over the Devils, meaning Games 1 and 2 would be at Madison Square Garden. If the Capitals win, Games 1 and 2 would be at the Prudential Center in Newark, N.J.

The league also didn’t announce dates or times for the rest of the East finals.
