ANAHEIM(CBSLA.com) - The Los Angeles Kings and Anaheim Ducks will face off Saturday night for game 1 of the Western Conference semifinals and the mayors of each city made a friendly wager on the outcome of the game.

Anaheim Mayor Tom Tait says if the Ducks defeat the Kings in a best of seven series, Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, who lists jazz composition among his hobbies, will give music lessons to students at Guinn Elementary School in Anaheim.

“Upon conclusion of this second-round series, I will personally welcome Mayor Garcetti to Anaheim,” Tait said. “As an accomplished musician, Mayor Garcetti will offer our young residents a wonderful lesson in the value of music and the arts.”

The other side of the bet: if the Kings win, Tait will have to spend a few hours cleaning the Los Angeles River.

“The Los Angeles Kings made history this week and became the hottest team in the N.H.L., just another reason that L.A. is the best sports town in America,” Garcetti said. “After the Kings advance to the conference finals, I will welcome Mayor Tait to join me for a project to clean up the L.A. River and help it become a lifeblood for the next chapter in our city.”

These two teams will face each other for the first time in the NHL playoffs.

The Ducks defeated the Stars in the opening series 4-2, while the Kings are coming off a surging comeback series win,down 3-0, against the San Jose Sharks.
