From the Valley Times Feb 21, 1970, Larry Cahan was one of the two Seals involved in the hit that sadly killed Bill Masterton:

If you wanted to listen to the game that night against the Blues, you would have to wait for tape delay at 10:20pm, since KABC 790 was running Lakers at San Diego Rockets at 7:50pm:

There was a ticket special for the last place Kings stuck at 9-40-6 in the LA Times, with a mugshot of Blues forward Red Berenson (the old Clippers method of promoting the opponent):

Half price tix for Mom and the kids, the Kings lost 4-2 to the Blues in front of 9,502.

More to come....
 
That is awesome!! Thank you for posting this, and keep them coming! Any chance you (or anyone for that matter) has an old ticket stub or program from the Miracle on Manchester game?
 
A year before Feb 22, 1969, the Kings were broadcast live on KNX 1070, no ticket specials though:

The Kings lost 3-1 in front of 11,584 on a Saturday night.

That one with name of Flett, was called Cowboy Bill Flett. I remember him so well, as when he wasn't wearing his team uni, he was wearing cowboy boots!
 
From Feb 21, 1974, free stockings for first 3000 under 16, or a least a coupon that could be redeemed at Two Guys stores:

What was Two Guys? It was a combo discount store/supermarket, kind of like a Walmart Supercenter or Gemco back in the day.
 
The one with JMFJ on the billboard must have been either the 2006-2007 or 2007-2008 teams. Those were some challenging seasons to say the least.

Thank you for sharing.

Love it!
 
Oct 10, 1973 Gordie returns to take on the LA Sharks in a rare newspaper ad for them:

Dec 5, 1973 Faberge Night! The smell of Marlboro Reds and Brut permeated the Fabulous Forum that night:

Nov 15, 1980 Get a coupon for Kings hockey gloves at Sears!

Jan 16, 1983 Devils don't even say they are playing the Kings tonight in the battle of last place teams, just that you can get your photo with a Devils player. If you look at that 82-83 roster, a picture with John Wensink or Chico Resch would be the prudent move:

JetsGarage: What an AWESOME display of billboard ads through the years! Incredible how much they've changed.
Cross Traffic: Great find with that ad! Didn't know that Gretzky was playing against the Oilers in that game though. :)
 
I've got to dig out my Goal Magazine from the 1974 playoffs to see if there is something in there of interest....I just got to find the damn thing.

Was looking at the newspaper ad for Feb 22, 1983, and found this fascinating article about Paul Mulvey, who refused to leave the bench to join a bench clearing brawl on January 24, 1982. Was waived and then sent to New Haven, was traded after the season to Edmonton, who sent him to Moncton (AHL):

From what I can find online, new coach Don Perry was a hard ass that liked that rock em sock em style of hockey and was trying to have the Kings become tougher. Perry had just become head coach 13 days earlier, was suspended six games for the incident. Mulvey never again played in the NHL, retired after his season with Moncton having 270 PIM along with 11 goals and 11 assists.

The Kings beat a pretty good Boston team 5-3, with the defense holding the Bruins to 23 shots. They were even on 1150 am back then, a station with a high wattage but poor coverage.

Redmond, Engblom, Hakansson?, Nichols, and Fox.

Kevin Collins is the linesman in the background. That Kings team lost 3 straight to Oilers in round 1, 2 of them going to very short OT's, one ended by Fogolin and the other by Anderson.
 
From Feb 23, 1969 issue of the Oakland Tribune, it was SUPER HOCKEY WEEK including a game at the Cow Palace against Minnesota. $2.50 for SUPER NOSEBLEED seems like the way to go, couldn't spell Coliseum right the second time:

5,485 showed up to see Ted Irvine score the game winner, trying to figure out how the linesman got on the boards to make that call:

Feb 23, 1973, you can skate on the Forum ice after a close 2-0 loss (empty netter by Terry Crisp)
