Chris Stewart shushes Staples.
Enemy for life. Kings need to pack an extra bag on their next trip to St. Louis to carry that grudge with 'em.

The handshakes at the end of game 4.

For me personally one that sticks in my mind among many others of course is Kopi's great defensive play in game 4 3rd period with about 9 min left. Still can't believe how that one didn't go in and afraid when watching the replay that somehow it will..lol
Looks like cheap beat me to it..

Dwight King learning he could handle himself in a fight gave him an extra boost of confidence that he never stopped riding.

Sutter switching Penner and King around gave the Kings three dominant lines - that happened in that series too.
Most memorable to me though was the way Kopitar raised the level of his game from a rather pedestrian effort against the Canucks to spectacular new heights against the Blues.

It would be so rad if everyone at Staples shhhush Stewart whenever he touches the puck next time we play them at home.

Even BEFORE the goal (go ahead and not include it if you'd like), the shift at the end of the first period of Game 2 by Brown-Kopitar-Williams. It was maybe the cleanest and most dominant shift of the season; it reminded me of the Colorado and Detroit teams at the turn of the century and was the moment I realized "Holy ****, this team has a shot."
The goal, of course, was the icing on the cake. But you can give me that cake plain anytime.

Slava Voynov recieved the least pressure against the blues and absolutely tantalized with his first pass out of the zone which segues into what was our most fluid hockey. There were stretches of the game where I was mesmerized by our movement up and down the ice and so was St. Louis. We spent a lot of time nail biting but watching the games again, it wasn't even close. They had a few good pushes but they were stretches of minutes and never a full period. Williams was quietly fantastic, Kopitar was completely dominant and Quick was quick. Quicks statement series against the team that had "the best goaltending"

This gets my vote. After the hit Crombeen was mouthing off, trying to make a scene when King wouldn't drop them. Next game, Crombeen is at it again. I remember leaning over to the wife and telling her, "Here we go.." Crombeen wanted everyone to know that DK was going to pay for that hit. Well, not so much.
