Other then the obvious (this playoff run) my favorite memory is the Stunner at Staples. Not just the comeback game but the remainder of that series was fun to watch!

Are we purposefully ignoring the Miracle on Manchester?

No, you're just really old. j/k, lol, smiley face
My favorite game was when Luc passed Dionne in all time goals scored by a Kings player. It was the first game I took my fiance to and shes been to about 200 more since then,

August 9th 1988.
Beating the Canucks in 5 games this year! I was so thrilled when this happened!!!!!!!!
There are many others, but those were the two that popped into my head first (aside from the SC win of course).
Oh, McSorely taking on Wendal Clark in game 1 of '93 Conference finals also gets an honorable mention. Loved watching that as a kid!!

I'd have to say the comeback against Dallas at Staples. I was at that game. The Kings were down and I started waving a paper "rally" towel. Everyone thought I was crazy. My buddy went to the can at the start of OT and missed it. We still laugh at him about it to this day.
Stunner at Staples is 2nd. I almost failed a class and got written up because I was so loud that night. Drank and didn't study. Even the girl that didn't like hockey was jumping up and down celebrating and drinking with me. Good thing I didn't listen to her and turn off the TV.
Game 3 against the Vancouver series a couple of years back also has a special place in my heart being that it was my 1st playoff game and they kicked serious butt that game.

Watching Luc score his 500th career goal at the Forum back in '99. He needed two goals to do it and he scored his second goal with like 3 minutes left. I had a feeling that he would do it that night so I had to scramble to find someone to go with so I convinced my brother in law to go. That was the first hockey game he ever went to. I still have the poster they gave away as we left the Forum.

That was the first night I started calling our team the "Comeback Kings" and they proved my mom wrong many times since then. I guess since this was the first time I was old enough to appreciate it, it was the most special.
But as noted in other posts I have made, the Kings have given me so many magnificent memories I will be their devoted fan forever.
Any of the moments you all have spoken of could easily qualify for me. Triple Crown line, (so many moments), Gretzky passing Howe, Luc breaking the record, Stunner at Staples, so many comebacks during the Gretzky-Sandstrom-Robitaille-Kurri-Granato-Millen-Donnelly-Kudelski-Coffey-Blake-Zhitnik days (one of my favorite Kings teams EVER!) With those guys playing it seemed like no comeback was impossible!
Thank you Kings, for ALL the memories! Including what they did on RR's and my birthdays this year- winning the Cup at home was just magical!

That is my favorite Kings moment that I never saw! The highlights are great to watch but the game was 3 years before I was born. Guessing a lot of this site is made up of people who were either too young or not yet born when that happened.
