We're going to have lots of series preview posts for you guys over the next few days. If you're looking for some fun SBNation Kings blogs to invade over the next couple weeks, Battle of California and Jewels From The Crown are the places to be. Play cool, though, and they'll (possibly) be nice to you.
Also, a quick programming note: the sign-up sheets for the 2012 Nucks Misconduct Playoff Fantasy Competitions went up in the fanpost section last night. You guys have until the scheduled start of the first playoff game on Wednesday to post your picks in the comments. Go here for the brackets, and here for the players competition. Good luck.
KILL THE KINGS!
