NHL Consecutive Playoff Series Wins

I wondered where the Kings sit in terms of historical playoff series win streaks. Now I know. Before 1968, there were only two rounds of playoffs, then three rounds from 1968-1979, and four rounds from 1980 on. At least, I think it was 1980. Pretty sure, yeah.

Top 10 Dallas Stars players of all time: No. 9 Darryl Sydor

And, after seventeen seasons of seeing every kind of shot and every kind of shooter hockey has to offer a hundred times over, he’s invented the only sort of mistake that could still, at that late date, fuck with his head.

ICETHETICS: The Philangeles FlyKings – Concepts

The guy who came up with the design calls them the FlyKings, but I prefer the Phlings. Inspired by Ross Taylor’s series of brand-blended concepts, Ty Hill set out to merge a couple of 1967 expansion clubs. Is this what would happen if the Philadelphia Flyers and Stanley Cup champion Los Angeles Kings mated? I…
