    Not in the category of 'Great' but definitely memorable

    Apr 27, 1998 - The Nightmare on Normandie (giving up 4 goals on a 5 minute powerplay to blow a 3-0 lead)
    Oct 6, 1988 - Gretzky's first game in LA / Oct 15, 1989 - Gretzky gets 1,851 / Mar 25, 1994 - Goal 802
    The year Florida went to the Cup finals, there was a great game the Kings had with them
    Apr 15, 1990 - Mike Krushelnyski scores from the ice to eliminate the Flames
    May 17, 1993 - Kings lose to the Leafs in game 1, but McSorley destroys Gilmour to set the tone for the rest of the series (Game 7 is awesome of course)
    May 11, 1993 - Shuchuk - Double OT

    Game 3 against NYR- we put on an absolute clinic
    Game 5 against NYR- Longest game in Kings history and we won the Cup
    Game 6 against NJD- First Cup and it was a celebration before the game ended
    Games 4 & 6 against DET in '01- comeback overtime win to tie the series and OT winner to send home a heavily favored Wings team
    Game 6 against COL in '01- I remember being on the edge of my seat all night and it was epic
    Game 5 against PHX in '12- Getting back to the Cup with a Pancakes goal in OT was awesome, especially against the whiny Coyotes
    Regular season game against DAL in 07-08 (?) we were down 4-0 going into the third and came back to win in OT 6-5 on I think a Kopitar goal

    No particular order and only games I've been around for and can clearly remember (I was 6 during the first Cup run so those games aren't as clear a memory).

    Yeah, the whole great game vs great outcome thing. I thought WCF Game 6 last year was a fantastic game. A total heavyweight bout and the Kings tying it with barely any time left (Richards goal?) was awesome. But then we lost in OT so yuck.

    I think SCF Game 5 is my all-time favorite because of the high stakes, the OT winner factor, the number of pucks off the post earlier than that, and the overall drama (2 OT PK's, are the refs trying to kill me?). I can't wait to see the list and then the final voting.

    1993 Toronto gm 6 and 7 were great. Gretzky taking over after the idiot TO media was saying he was washed up and Gilmour was now the best in the NHL. If we had won the Cup in 1993, then I would have to really compete those against SCF Game 5.

    Game 6 vs NJ first Championship
    Game 7 Vs San Jose as they came back from down 3-0 in the series
    Game 7 vs Anaheim, hey first playoff series between teams and we won and did it first (you can use that argument as Anaheim fans do when talking about the Cup)
    Game 7 Vs Chicago...did you really think they'd do it again.
    Game 5 vs NY Rangers...had it been a 4-1 win it wouldn't rank but because of it being double OT it was magical.
    Games 5 and 6 vs Colorado 2001, down 3-1 in series, back to back 1-0 wins, game 6 in 2OT. I believe Felix Potvin was in goal for both. Glenn Murray getting the game winner in game 6. Names from the past.
    This is my list + Toronto in 93.

    Miracle on Manchester is probably still the number one game of all time not because of its historical importance to the Kings, but its importance the entire league. It's still probably the only Kings game that would make it into a NHL greatest games of all time list, for the exception of maybe that game 7 in Chicago this past post season.

    Number 2 greatest game would be what I just is behind the Miracle on Manchester, and that is game 7 of the 2014 WCF. Winning Cups are really nice, but if there is one thing everyone (including non Kings fans) will remember about the playoffs this season 50 years from now it will be this game 7, and Alec Martinez's clinching goals. Some people call this year's game 7 of the WCF the greatest game 7 ever played not just in hockey, but in any sport. Need I say more?

    After that I would say it's game 5 of this year's Cup final. Yeah yeah, I know what the first Cup symbolizes and how emtional it was for everyone and what not, but no game in that entire 2012 Cup run was anywhere near as exciting or as heart stopping as that game 5 of this year's Cup final, and as long as we live no moment will ever be as exciting as when A-Mart finally ended that game. I think what puts this Cup win above the 2012 Cup win is the fact that it symbolizes that this team/franchise has moved beyond making one Cup win and Gretzky our entire identity. This franchise is now transitioning into something bigger, something more legitimate in this league that exist outside of living in the shadows of the great one.

    Get the pitchforks outs...I think this game and entire series is highly overrated, especially in comparison to games and series played in this last Cup run. I had thought this though even before the last Cup run. I think we should be done hyping up wins over the Red Wings. Yeah yeah, I know the Wings were like the teh greatest team of all time in the 2000's and what not, but hearing people hype up wins over the Red Wings that wasn't in a Conference Final or Cup Final is like hearing baseball people who are not Red Sox fans hype up wins over the Yankees that weren't in the ALCS or World Series. I think we are little above that now.

    The OT game then hanging on for dear life to win game 7 with Gretzky's hat trick...

    In the time that I've been watching these are my picks (all of which have been previously mentioned)

    1993: Game 7 against Toronto.
    2001: Games 4 and 6 against Detroit
    2001: Game 6 against Colorado.
    2012: Game 5 against Phoenix.
    2012: Game 6 against New Jersey
    2014: Game's 4-7 against San Jose
    2014: Game 7 against Anaheim
    2014: Game 7 against Chicago
    2014: Game 5 against New York.

    I have a hard time not including the entire 2014 run, just because how the Kings basically lived on the brink of elimination the entire time. If nothing else I think the entire Chicago series should be mentioned as being one of the single best playoff series I've ever seen. I almost wish I had been a neutral fan so I could have enjoyed it simply for the great hockey that it was.

    It was the single best moment for the franchise for a nearly a 20 year period. Wings were a powerhouse and were such heavy favorites that the Kings knocking them out was really a shock. It's been a while but I believe the Kings started that series out 2-0 and swept from there which is even more surprising.

    The best LA Kings game of all time was game 7 vs Toronto in 1993.
