The Kings have not had a great deal of succsss in their history, winning their division just once in 1990–91,[3] and failing to get out of the first round of the playoffs twelve times in the twenty-four seasons when they qualified for post-season play and advancing past the second round just once.[4] Indeed, the high point in Kings franchise history was when they won their conference championship for the first and only time in their history, advancing to the Stanley Cup Finals in the 1992–93 season, only to lose the series to the Montreal Canadiens in five games.[5] The 1990-91 NHL season was the 74th regular season of the National Hockey League. ...

Franchise history

The "Forum Blue and Gold" years (1967–68 to 1987–88)

Prior to the Kings arrival in the Los Angeles area, both the Pacific Coast Hockey League (PCHL) and the Western Hockey League (WHL) had several teams in California, including the PCHL's Los Angeles Monarchs of the 1930s and the WHL's Los Angeles Blades of the 1960s.[6] When the NHL decided to expand for the 1967–68 season amid rumblings that the WHL was proposing to turn itself into a major league and compete for the Stanley Cup, Canadian entrepreneur Jack Kent Cooke paid the NHL $2 million to place one of the six expansion teams in Los Angeles.[7] The Pacific Coast Hockey League was an amateur ice hockey league with teams in western United States and Canada that played from 1944 to 1952. ...

Cooke was officially awarded one of the six new NHL franchises joining the NHL in the 1967–68 season, which included the California Seals, Minnesota North Stars, Philadelphia Flyers, Pittsburgh Penguins and the St. Louis Blues.[7] With the Forum still under construction, the Kings opened their first season in the NHL at the Long Beach Arena in the neighboring city of Long Beach on October 14, 1967, defeating the Philadelphia Flyers 4–2.[8] For the next two months, the Kings played their home games at Long Beach and at the Los Angeles Memorial Sports Arena.[1] The Fabulous Forum opened its doors on December 30, 1967, with the Kings being shut out by the Flyers, 2–0.[6] Image File history File links No higher resolution available. ...

The Kings made the Forum their home for the next 32 seasons.[2] Players like Bill "Cowboy" Flett, Eddie "The Jet" Joyal, Eddie "The Entertainer" Shack, and Real "Frenchy" Lemieux helped introduce the Los Angeles area to the NHL in the team's first few seasons.[6] Such player nicknames were the brainchild of none other than Cooke himself.[6] Image File history File links No higher resolution available. ...

In their first season, the Kings finished in second place in the Western Division, just one point behind the Flyers.[9] The Kings were the only expansion team that had a winning record at home, but were eliminated in the first round of the playoffs by the Minnesota North Stars, losing the seventh game at The Forum on April 18, 1968, 9–4.[10] In their second season behind head coach Red Kelly, the Kings finished fourth in the West Division—the final playoff berth.[11] But after eliminating the Oakland Seals in the first round of the playoffs in seven games, the Kings were swept out of post-season play in the second round by the St. Louis Blues.[10] The Minnesota North Stars were a professional ice hockey team in the National Hockey League between 1967 and 1993. ... is the 108th day of the year (109th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

After two fairly successful seasons, the Kings hit upon hard times, mostly due to poor management. Kings general managers established a history of trading away first-round draft picks, usually for veteran players, many of them NHL stars on the downside of their careers, a problem that would hinder the franchise for years to come.[12] In 1972, the Kings moved to bring some credibility back to the franchise when they hired former Toronto Maple Leafs winger Bob Pulford as their head coach.[1] It took him just two seasons to lead the Kings back into the playoffs and in 1974, they faced the Chicago Blackhawks, only to be eliminated in five games.[10] Pulford eventually led the team to three of the most successful seasons in franchise history.[13] For other uses, see Toronto Maple Leafs (disambiguation). ...

In 1973, the Kings hired Bob Miller as the team's play-by-play announcer, and he has held that post continuously since that time. Miller, considered to be one of the best hockey play-by-play announcers in the NHL, is often referred to as the "Voice of the Kings." He was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame on November 13, 2000[14][15] and his first book, Bob Miller's Tales of the Los Angeles Kings, was published in 2006.[16] Image File history File links No higher resolution available. ...

Despite qualifying for post-season action in the 1973–74 and 1974–75 seasons and being eliminated in the first round in both years, the Kings moved to significantly upgrade their offensive firepower when they acquired center Marcel Dionne on June 23, 1975, in a trade with the Detroit Red Wings. Dionne was already a superstar in the NHL and he made an immediate impact in the 1975–76 season, scoring 40 goals and adding 54 assists for 94 points in 80 regular season games.[17] He led the Kings to a 38–33–9 record (85 points), earning them a second place finish in the James Norris Division.[17] The 1973-74 NHL season was the 57th season of the National Hockey League. ...

Behind Dionne's offensive prowess, the strong goaltending of Rogie Vachon, and the speed and scoring touch of forward Butch Goring, the Kings swept the Atlanta Flames out of the first round of the playoffs, but were eliminated in the second round by the Boston Bruins in seven games.[10] The Kings would defeat the Flames and lose to the Bruins in the following year's playoffs as well.[10] Rogie Vachon (September 8, 1945 in Palmorolle, Quebec) was a Canadian professional ice hockey goalie who played for the Montreal Canadiens, Los Angeles Kings, Detroit Red Wings, and Boston Bruins in the National Hockey League. ...

On January 13, 1979, Dionne found himself on a new line with two young, mostly unknown players: second-year right winger Dave Taylor, and left winger Charlie Simmer, who had been a career minor-leaguer.[1] But this line combination, known as the "Triple Crown Line," would go on to become one of the highest-scoring line combinations in NHL history.[1][18] January 13 is the 13th day of the year in the Gregorian calendar. ...

After that first season that the Triple Crown Line played together, Dr. Jerry Buss purchased the Kings, the Lakers, and the Forum for $67.5 million, but the Simmer-Dionne-Taylor combination remained intact.[6] The next season, the Triple Crown Line dominated the NHL, scoring 146 goals and 182 assists, good for 328 points.[1] The entire line, along with goalie Mario Lessard, was selected to play in the NHL All-Star Game that season, which was played at the Forum.[1] In that 1979–80 season, Dionne won the Art Ross Memorial Trophy for winning a NHL scoring title that season with 137 points on 53 goals and 84 assists.[1] But even with the Triple Crown Line's ability to dominate, the Kings still could not get out of the first round of the playoffs until 1982.[10] This article does not cite any references or sources. ...

That year, the Kings opened the playoffs against the Edmonton Oilers, who were led by a young, but fast-rising star by the name of Wayne Gretzky. Gretzky was only in his third year in the league, but he dominated the NHL like no other had before, from the moment he stepped onto NHL ice in his rookie season. And by the 1981–82 NHL season, he was already the most dominant player in the league, and had made the Oilers one of the elite teams in the NHL, on their way to winning four Stanley Cup championships in the 1980s.[19] The Oilers finished with 111 points, the second-best record in the league, while the Kings barely made the playoffs with only 63 points.[20] The Kings won Game 1 in Edmonton on April 7, 1982, 10–8, in the highest scoring Stanley Cup Playoff game ever.[21] The Oilers recovered to win in overtime in Game 2,[10] and the teams headed to Los Angeles for Games 3 and 4.

Game 3 would be one of the most amazing in hockey history and was later dubbed the "Miracle on Manchester" (the Kings arena, the Forum, was on Manchester Boulevard). In that game, played on April 10, 1982, Gretzky led the Oilers to a commanding 5-0 lead after two periods and it seemed like the Kings were headed for a blowout loss. But the Kings began a unbelievable comeback in the third period, tying the game on a goal by left wing Steve Bozek at 19:55 of the third period, sending the game into overtime.[22] The Miracle on Manchester refers to a legendary ice hockey playoff game between the Edmonton Oilers and the Los Angeles Kings of the NHL.

Bozek's goal set the stage for what was to come. At 2:35 of the overtime period, Kings left wing Daryl Evans fired a slap shot off a face-off in the right circle of the Edmonton zone, beating Oilers goaltender Grant Fuhr over his right shoulder to give the Kings an incredible come-from-behind, overtime victory, 6-5.[22][23] The Miracle on Manchester, the greatest comeback in NHL playoff history,[24] is also the greatest moment in Kings franchise history as of 2007.[1] Not only did the Kings complete a miraculous comeback against the vaunted Oilers, but they also went on to eliminate them from the playoffs in five games.[23] Daryl Thomas Evans (born January 12, 1961 in Toronto, Ontario) is a retired Canadian ice hockey player. ... Grant S. Fuhr (born September 28, 1962), is a former goaltender in the National Hockey League. ...


Despite Dionne's leadership, the Kings missed the playoffs in the next two seasons, and were quickly swept out of the playoffs by the Oilers in the 1985, when the Oilers won their second straight Stanley Cup championship.[10] Dionne's time with the Kings ended on March 10, 1987, when he was traded to the New York Rangers.[25] But by this time, the Kings had new skaters to help lead them into the next decade, including star forwards Bernie Nicholls, Jimmy Carson, Luc Robitaille, and defenseman Steve Duchesne.[22] The 1984-85 NHL season was the 68th season of the National Hockey League. ...

In 1987, Bruce McNall purchased the Kings from Buss, and he turned the team into a Stanley Cup contender almost overnight on August 9, 1988, when he acquired the league's best player, Gretzky himself, in a blockbuster trade with the Oilers that rocked the hockey world, especially north of the border, where Canadians mourned the loss of a player they considered a national treasure.[26] Image File history File links No higher resolution available. ...

In Gretzky's first season with the Kings, he led the team in scoring with 168 points on 54 goals and 114 assists, and won his ninth Hart Memorial Trophy as the league's Most Valuable Player.

The Kings faced Gretzky's old team, the Oilers, in the first round of the 1989 playoffs. They fell behind 3 games to 1, but rallied to take the series in seven games, helped in no small part by nine goals from Chris Kontos, a little-known player who had just recently been called up from the minor leagues. However, the Kings were quickly swept out of the playoffs in the second round by the eventual Stanley Cup champion Calgary Flames. Over the next three seasons, Gretzky would lead the way, only to see his team bounced out of the playoffs each time by his former team, the Oilers, who won the Stanley Cup in 1990. Despite their eventual second-round loss to Edmonton, Gretzky spearheaded the Kings to their first regular season division title in franchise history in the 1990–91 season with a 46-24-10 record (102 points, the second best point total in franchise history), but that would not be the pinnacle of his career in Los Angeles.

The Kings would reach new heights in the 1992–93 season, but the campaign started badly when it was learned that Gretzky had suffered a career-threatening herniated thoracic disk before the season began. The concern was not mainly whether Gretzky would be able to play that season, but if he would ever be able to play again. But even without their captain and leading scorer, the Kings got off to a blistering 20-8-3 start,[27] with left-winger Luc Robitaille, who won the Calder Memorial Trophy as the 1986–87's NHL Rookie of the Year, filling in as captain for the ailing Gretzky. Robitaille led the team until Gretzky returned after missing the first 39 games.[28] Robitaille would go on to retire at the end of the 2005–06 season as the highest-scoring left winger in National Hockey League history.[29] The 1992-93 NHL season was the 76th regular season of the National Hockey League. ...

Robitaille and Gretzky, along with former Oilers' winger Jari Kurri, forwards Tony Granato and Tomas Sandstrom, defensemen Rob Blake, Marty McSorley, and Alexei Zhitnik, and goalie Kelly Hrudey, guided the Kings through a rough middle portion of the season until they found their game once again in the last three months of the season to qualify for post-season action. Although Gretzky came back to score 16 goals and 49 assists (65 points) in just 45 games, it was Robitaille who was the Kings' impact player that season, leading the team in scoring with 63 goals and 62 assists (125 points) in 84 regular season games, setting new NHL all-time records for goals and points scored by a left winger in a single season.[27] The Kings finished with a 39-35-10 record (88 points), clinching third place in the Smythe Division.

Kings head coach Barry Melrose had his team's offense running on all cylinders when the 1993 playoffs began, and they scored an amazing 33 goals in their first-round series against the Calgary Flames.[30] In the second round, the Kings faced the heavily-favored Vancouver Canucks, a team that had beaten the Kings rather handily five times in seven games during the regular season, and had not lost to the Kings in their four meetings in Vancouver. But the Kings would go on to eliminate the Canucks in six games, with the pivotal victory coming in Game 5 at Vancouver, which was tied 3-3 at the end of regulation play. The teams were still tied after the first overtime period, but winger Gary Shuchuk scored at 6:31 of the second overtime period, giving the Kings a 3-2 series lead, and dealing the Canucks an emotional and, as it turned out, fatal blow.

In the Campbell Conference Finals, the Kings were even more of an underdog against the Doug Gilmour-led Toronto Maple Leafs. But with Gretzky at the helm, the Kings eliminated the Leafs in a hard-fought seven-game series that included two overtime games and a Game 6 win for the Kings, who were facing elimination after losing Game 5 in overtime—they trailed the Leafs in the series, 3-2.[31] In Game 6, Toronto scored two third period goals and tied the game at 4-4 at the end of regulation play. But in overtime, Luc Robitaille fed Gretzky a perfect pass and Gretzky scored in overtime to give his team a dramatic 5-4 victory and sending the teams back to Toronto for a Game 7. In the final contest, Gretzky scored a hat trick (three goals) and an assist to lead the Kings to a 5-4 win and a berth in the Stanley Cup Finals for the first time in franchise history.[31][32] Douglas Robert Gilmour (born June 25, 1963 in Kingston, Ontario) is a retired ice hockey player who played in the National Hockey League. ...

In the Stanley Cup Finals, the Kings faced the Montreal Canadiens, who had breezed through the playoffs and were well-rested. The Kings defeated the Canadiens in Game 1, 4-1. Game 2 proved to be the turning point in the series. Late in the contest, with the Kings leading by a score of 2-1, the Canadiens coach, Jacques Demers, requested a measurement of Kings defenseman Marty McSorley's stick blade. Demers' suspicions proved to be correct, as the curve of blade was too great, and McSorley was penalized. The Canadiens scored on the resulting power play and won the game in overtime. The Kings never recovered. They lost the next two games in overtime, and were shelled 4-1 in Game 5 as the Canadiens won their 24th Stanley Cup in franchise history.[31][33] The Montreal Canadiens (French: ) are a professional mens ice hockey team based in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. ...

Despite the stinging defeat at the hands of the Canadiens in the finals, Gretzky and the Kings had generated excitement about hockey and the NHL that had never been seen before in Southern California. As soon as Gretzky donned a Kings jersey, the Forum was sold out for every game — virtually overnight, a Kings game became the hottest ticket in town. The popularity of Gretzky and the Kings also led to the NHL awarding an expansion team to Anaheim, California; in 1993 the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim (who became the Anaheim Ducks on June 22, 2006) would become the Kings nearest rival, just 35 miles to the south. Gretzky's popularity in Southern California also led to the NHL expanding into other Sun Belt cities such as Phoenix, Dallas, Tampa, Miami, and Nashville. “Anaheim” redirects here. ...

The next four seasons would be major disappointments, as the Kings failed to qualify for the playoffs. It was during this period that McNall's criminal activities came to light, and he would eventually be convicted of a whopping 236 counts of bank fraud. McNall's mismanagement put the Kings in dire financial straits, forcing the team to file for Chapter 11 bankruptcy—they were even unable to meet player payroll.[34]


While he was headed to prison, McNall sold the team to Joseph Cohen and Jeffrey Sudikoff, but even they were unable to lift the Kings out of their financial woes, and the Kings were unable to spend the money needed to bring in talent. The Kings' financial woes resulted in a roster with almost no talent outside of Gretzky and created a ripple effect for the next few years — the Kings missed the playoffs for four seasons, from 1993–94 to 1996–97, even though the team was purchased in October 1995 by Philip Anschutz and Edward P. Roski Jr., who would lead the franchise into a new era. The 1993-94 NHL season was the 77th regular season of the National Hockey League. ...

Now under the ownership of the Anschutz Entertainment Group (AEG), the Kings began a rebuilding phase. Meanwhile, Gretzky, who was by this time on the downside of his career, stated publicly that he wanted the team to acquire a forward capable of scoring fifty goals per season and an offensive defenseman. If they failed to do that, he wanted to be traded to a team that was a legitimate Stanley Cup contender. Image File history File links No higher resolution available. ...

After all he had done for the game by that time, Gretzky probably deserved another chance to win an elusive fifth Stanley Cup before retirement. But his public statements forced the Kings' hand, since no team would now give them equal value in a trade because of his demands — the Kings would be at a huge disadvantage in any trade, and this would badly hurt their rebuilding program.


On February 27, 1996, The Great One was traded, this time to the St. Louis Blues, for forwards Craig Johnson, Patrice Tardif, Roman Vopat, a first-round pick in the 1997 draft (Matt Zultek) and a fifth-round choice in the 1996 draft (Peter Hogan).[35] None became stars for the Kings, although Gretzky himself was an unrestricted free agent by season's end, and only played 18 regular season games for the Blues.

Shortly after Gretzky was traded, the often-maligned general manager Sam McMaster was fired and was replaced by former Kings winger Dave Taylor.[36] But the rebuilding phase for Taylor was a tough one, as the Kings continued to flounder—they failed to make the playoffs until the 1997–98 season.[31] Dave Taylor is a retired professional ice hockey player (L.A.

But Taylor was not finished dealing that summer. Shortly after hiring Murray, Taylor acquired star right-wing Zigmund Palffy and veteran center Bryan Smolinski on June 20, 1999, in exchange for center prospect Olli Jokinen, winger prospect Josh Green, defenseman prospect Mathieu Biron and the Kings' first-round pick in the 1999 NHL Entry Draft.

With a new home, a new coach, a potential 50-goal scorer in the fold and players such as Rob Blake, Luc Robitaille, Glen Murray, Jozef Stumpel, Donald Audette, Ian Laperriere, and Mattias Norstrom, the Kings improved dramatically, finishing the season the 1999–2000 season with a 39-31-12-4 record (94 points), good for second place in the Pacific Division. But in the 2000 playoffs, the Kings were once again eliminated in the first round, this time by the mighty Detroit Red Wings in a four-game sweep.

The 2000–01 season was a controversial one, as fans began to question AEG's commitment to the success of the Kings because they failed to significantly improve the team during the off-season. Adding fuel to the fire was the February 21, 2001 trade of star defenseman Rob Blake, who had won the James Norris Memorial Trophy as the NHL's best defenseman in 1998.[37] The 2000-01 NHL season was the 84th regular season of the National Hockey League. ...

In that deal, the Kings sent Blake and center Steven Reinprecht, to the Colorado Avalanche in exchange for right wing Adam Deadmarsh, defenseman Aaron Miller, center prospect Jared Aulin and a first-round pick in the 2001 NHL Entry Draft (Dave Steckel). Deadmarsh and Miller became impact players for the Kings, who finished the 2000–01 season with a 38-28-13-3 record (92 points), good for a third place finish in the Pacific Division and another first-round playoff date with the still-mighty Detroit Red Wings.[38] Steven Edward Reinprecht (born May 7, 1976 in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada) is a professional ice hockey player. ...

The heavily-favored Red Wings — many predicted another four-game sweep — made easy work of the Kings in Games 1 and 2 at the Joe Louis Arena, but the Kings got back in the series with a 2-1 win in Game 3 at Staples Center.[31] Joe Louis Arena, nicknamed Hockeytown, The Joe, and JLA, is the home of the National Hockey League franchise the Detroit Red Wings. ...


That amazing win took all the wind out of the Red Wings' sails, and the Kings eliminated them in Game 6 in Los Angeles, having won four straight games after going down 2-0 in the series. It was the Kings' first playoff series win since 1993.


In the second round, the Kings went up against another elite team, the Colorado Avalanche, led by superstars like Joe Sakic, Peter Forsberg, Patrick Roy, Ray Bourque, and of course, Rob Blake. The Kings took the eventual champions to seven games but lost the series, 4-3.[31] while still fighting for a playoff spot in which they clinched seventh place in the Western Conference where they were matched with the heavily-favored Avalanche.

But even though the Kings refused to use it as an excuse, injuries were the primary reason for the team's failures.

At the trade deadline, the Kings added another goal scorer in the New York Islanders' Mark Parrish, along with defenseman Brent Sopel, and they fired head coach Andy Murray on March 21, 2006, replacing him with interim head coach John Torchetti, but the moves failed to jumpstart the team, as they continued their losing ways.

Los Angeles Kings - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (4131 words)
Despite Dionne's leadership, the Kings missed the playoffs the next two seasons, and were quickly swept out of the playoffs by the Oilers in the 1984-85 NHL season, when the Oilers won their second straight Stanley Cup championship.
Gretzky led the Kings to their first division title in franchise history in the 1990-91 season with a 46-24-10 record (102 points, the second best point total in franchise history), but that would not be the pinnacle of his career in Los Angeles.
The Kings also made an even bigger move in the 1999-2000 NHL season, as they left the Great Western Forum and moved to Staples Center in Downtown Los Angeles, which was built by Anschutz and Roski.
