The last time the Kings won Game One?

In 1993, the Stanley Cup Finals, the Kings won game one in Montreal.

UPDATE: Except I’m wrong. It was round two in 2001, against Colorado. Dammit, Modry. 

I guess I’ll try to save face by pointing out that the last time the Kings won game one of an opening round series was 1993, against Calgary.

That’s what I meant, yeah.

    … Actually, the last time the Kings won game one of a series was Thursday, April 26, 2001 in the CSF at Colorado. Kings won in OT, 4-3. The immortal Jaroslav Modry scored the game-winning goal.

    To be fair, it felt like they stole that Colorado game because Potvin was in the mood to bitchslap Roy.

    This one they actually came out and won.

      The Kings didn’t steal that game. They stole Games 5 and 6, but Game 1 was an even match for the most part. Yes, they were outshot, but that 2001 team was damn good.

      That win was the Kings’ 5th straight playoff win, by the way, a franchise record. Too bad it followed an NHL record 14-game playoff losing streak (Games 2-5 of the ’93 Final, consecutive sweeps in ’98 and ’00 by St Louis and Detroit, and the first 2 games of the ’01 playoffs to Detroit) and was itself followed by a 3-game losing streak.

        The Kings didn’t steal that game.

        … No, they didn’t.  Potvin stole it.

        Yes, they were outshot

        … They were dominated.

        Roy just laid a rare egg in that game.
