I cannot think of another team in ANY team-sport with a more record-establishing championship run than our 2014 Kings.
I really can't.
Again, here are the records:
----The 1st team in NHL history to win the Stanley Cup after going down
0-3 in a PO series preceding the finals
---- The 1st team in NHL history to win the Stanley Cup after playing
26 PO games
----The 1st team in NHL history to reach the Stanley Cup Finals after playing
a full 7-games in ALL 1st 3 rounds of the POs.
---- The 1st team in NHL history to win the Stanley Cup after playing a full
7-games in the 1st 3 rounds of the POs.
---- The 1st team in NHL history to win 3 straight PO overtime games
without ever having led during regulation in any of the games
---- The 1st team in NHL history to total as many as 64 PO games played
over 3 consecutive seasons
---- The 1st team in NHL history to come back from 2-goal deficits and win in 3
consecutive PO games.
-----The 1st team in NHL history to go 7-0 in elimination games and win The
[Only one team in NHL history posted more such wins in a single
playoff year, but the 1975 New York Islanders (eight) were eliminated in the
Stanley Cup semifinals.]
Plus, these short-list accomplishments:
----Only the 4th team in NHL history to win a PO series after going down 0-3
----Only the 3rd team in NHL history to play 26 PO games

Unless someone can talk me down, or give me examples to the contrary, I just have to consider
The Kings' 2014 Stanley Cup Chanpionship
the most record-setting championship in the history of team sports.
