The Los Angeles Kings have had their highs and lows over the years, but it’s rarely a dull night when this team takes the ice. They were one of six teams—and one of two in California—to join the NHL in the 1967 expansion. The new franchise made the playoffs in their very first season, and over the next few decades they were a frequent presence in the NHL playoffs, although—frustratingly—they tended to get eliminated early. On April 10, 1982, the Kings upset the powerhouse Edmonton Oilers 6-5 in an amazing come-from-behind victory that would become renowned as the Miracle on Manchester.
The team's fortunes changed when Wayne Gretzky joined the team in 1988, which coincided with a change in Los Angeles Kings jerseys from gold and purple to a striking black and silver color scheme. Gretzky's Kings made it all the way to the Stanley Cup Finals in 1993 but fell short in their attempt to win their first NHL championship. The Montreal Canadiens won that series 4-1. The Kings would have to wait until 2012 for another shot at Stanley Cup glory, and they made the most of it, beating the New Jersey Devils four games to two. They added another trophy in 2014 by trouncing the New York Rangers.
