I think I've devised a way to get the 30 games down to 10.
Here's what I have in mind:
Three polls of 10 choices each (10 as that is the max per poll).
You will be able to vote for as many as you like in each poll, but ideally, you'll pick the 10 among the 30 you think should be in the top 10.
So, maybe you pick one in poll 1, three in poll 2, and 7 in poll 3 - That equals 10. Ideally, something like that is what you would do.
Maybe you want to select 10 in poll 3 and zero in the other 2 polls. That's why I allowed you to make as many picks as you want. Don't abuse it, mmmkay?
Then, the top 10 vote getters make the top 10 poll.
From there, the lowest gets elminated, then it's the top 9 poll, and so on, until the ULTIMATE KINGS GAME OF ALL TIME IS DECIDEEEEEEEEED!!!
Do you care?

Sounds a bit complicated to be honest, though I commend you for making the effort to organize it. Another way might be just to go with one poll of 10 games. There are going to be games that nearly everyone can agree on. The two cup clinching games in 2012 and 2014 come to mind, along with game 7 victories over Chicago this year and Toronto in 1993. Add in the Miracle on Manchester, and that's already five games. Perhaps you could have another poll to determine the remaining five games, excluding the ones already mentioned.

In that case, I would still need three polls to determine the 5.

Might as well have 3 polls to determine the whole 10.

I sure wish someone somewhere had video from the final game at the Forum versus the Ducks. I was at the game and it was an amazing way to let the old time hockey arena go out with a bang. Quite a party with an 8-1 drubbing of the Ducks and major fisticuffs from the likes of Kings legends Len Barrie and Jason Podollan. Andy Murray and Hartsburgh were getting into it verbally. Anybody else remember what happened that night?

I watched that one! Goring gave him the pass as I recall.

Best series ever, this year against Hawks, Sharks, Ducks, and 93 against Leafs, in that order.
