Another upset you don't hear about is the under dog Los Angeles Kings upsetting the heavily favored Detroit Red Wings in the 2001 playoffs in six games. Detroit won the first two games, then LA would win the next four games..including pulling off a game 4 come from behind win in overtime. Six minutes left in the game and Detroit had a 3-0 lead then LA would come back and tie it, pulling off a "Miracle on Manchester". Then, Eric Belanger would score the winner tying the series.
Game five LA controlled the entire game and won it, then game six, Red Wing killer Adam Deadmarsh sealed the series with an overtime winner and sending Detroit home.
Los Angeles run would run out against Colorado the next series..but whats amazing is that they took them to SEVEN games.
