Los Angeles Kings Playoff Details
The Kings reached the Stanley Cup Final for the first time in 1993, five years after acquiring Wayne Gretzky in one of the most famous trades of all time. In the Campbell Conference Final, Gretzky and the Kings played against the Toronto Maple Leafs. The Leafs took a 3 games to 2 lead in the hard-fought series, and Game 6 went to overtime. In overtime, Gretzky drew blood with a high stick on Maple Leafs forward Doug Gilmour. According to the NHL’s rules at the time, Gretzky should have been assessed a five minute major and a game misconduct, but the referee on the ice missed the call, and—to the dismay of everyone in Toronto—Gretzky went on to score the game-winning goal. In Game 7 in Toronto, Gretzky played what he would later call the best game of his career: he scored three goals and an assist, and the Kings won 5-4 to reach the Stanley Cup Final.
The Kings’ fortunes in the Stanley Cup Final took a bad turn after Marty McSorley was penalized for using an illegal stick. The Montreal Canadiens tied the game on the powerplay, and they won every game for the remainder of the series.
In 2012, the Kings were the 8th seed in the Western Conference, but they caught fire in the playoffs. They upset the Vancouver Canucks in round one and lost only two games in the first three rounds of the playoffs. Stellar goaltending from Jonathan Quick helped the Kings reach the Stanley Cup Final, where they played the New Jersey Devils. The Kings won the series in six games and became the first 8th seed to win the Stanley Cup. Home ice advantage wasn’t even a factor for the 2012 Kings, who won 10 road games during the playoffs.
The Kings won another Stanley Cup in 2014. Their road to the Cup was harder the second time around: each series before the Stanley Cup Final took the full 7 games. In the first round, the Kings went down three games to none to the San Jose Sharks. But the Kings dominated after Game 3, and they became just the fourth NHL team to ever come back from a 3-0 deficit to win a playoff series. They had an easier time in the Stanley Cup Final, defeating the New York Rangers in five games.h3>When do Kings playoff tickets go on sale?

How much do Kings playoff tickets cost?
The average resale price for a Kings playoff ticket is $164. But many factors can affect the cost of a playoff ticket. You’ll most likely pay more to attend an elimination game, and ticket prices are likely to increase as the Kings get closer to the Stanley Cup. There might also be more of a competitive market for a rivalry series in the first two rounds. If the Kings are playing the Ducks or another Pacific Division team, you might have to pay more for a ticket.
