I spent much more than I should have and went to every playoff game.
Well worth the $.

I'm afraid that if I attended a playoff game live, I would've jinxed the Kings a 0-17-2 record is scary over the past 2 seasons. Turned down tix to ensure I did not jinx the team. Did like going to the parade and celebration inside Staples.

You were there for the celebration inside Staples and the roof didn't cave in on the team?

Pulled the trigger for Game 6, so no regrets. Even so, live a while and it will slip down the list pretty quick.

Went to game 3 which was awesome! Couldn't afford any more games. Sure, I wish I would have been at game 6. But being home watching the game with my wife and son will be a night I'll never forget. No regrets here.

Absolutely no regrets as I was in town for one game - Game 3. Got tix for me, dizzyd and jt and we had a great time in that blowout win! Would've loved to be at Game 6 but I watched it from home with wifey who deserved to be with me as she has suffered a long time with this team - we went to every home playoff game but 2 in 1993 and spent a whole lot of $$ when we were first married. Worth every penny that year as well as this year.

I couldn't really afford any tix so I missed out. I don't regret a thing....I still need to get a photo with the Cup though...maybe some day.

Wow. That's a hell of a record!

Not prepaying for playoff tickets was the worst decision I made last year. Around February, I was planning my renewal for the 2012-2013 season. One of the options was to prepay for playoff tickets or do the "pay as we play" option. During the time I had to make my decision, the kings were going through their goal scoring problems, game after game of 0-1 goals right before the trade deadline. I was talking to the season ticket holder that sat in front of me when I uttered these words.... "Why would I want to pay for playoffs when we are not even sure if they are going to make it! and if they do, they will get swept in the first round the way they are playing".
As the playoffs went on, I wanted to get tickets but then I thought to myself.. if I didn't have faith before, then I don't deserve to go.
During the season ticket member day with the cup at the home depot center I ran into my neighbor again and they were telling me how great the playoffs were and that they didn't miss a single game. I told him that my decision to not buy tickets ahead of time was the worst decision I ever made.
On the other hand, every playoff game I have attended, the kings have lost so maybe it was best that I didn't go.

My only regret in hindsight is not selling my SC Final Game 4 tickets which were worth a small fortune after the Kings went up 3-0. But I could never have risked missing the championship game, and was very happy to be there to watch the Kings win Game 6.
First year as an STH - hard to feel bad about that decision.
