Trivia

Was thinking about this play last night and figured there have been plenty like it in Kings' history: an important event involving a (relatively) obscure player in the scope of the franchise. If you know it, answer it and try to pose a question of your own, hopefully we can get a little chain going:

Who made the stretch pass to Luc Robitaille that sprung him on the breakaway where he scored his 551st goal as a King to become the team's all-time leading goal-scorer?

What former King scored the NHL's fastest goal at the start of a playoff game? And how fast was it?

Last I checked he plays for the Blues.

I remember that game, I was in the 200's somewhere...something like 8-6. I think Hossa had a hat trick as well and I think Norstrom also had a career game pointwise.

Fantastic game.

Edit: Hossa only had 2 goals, as did Jeff Giuliano.

Which Kings player broke his stick during a game, but then he wrestled an opponent's stick away from him, and he finished his shift with it (opposing player's stick was even the wrong curve). The opposing player chased him until the end of the shift, and even drew a roughing penalty after attacking the Kings player that stole his stick.

A. Which King stole the stick?

B. Whose stick did he steal?

C. What would have made this crime "perfect?"



hint #1: I think this happened around 1993 - 95...?

Who was in goal for the Kings the night Gretzky broke Gordie Howe's point record with 1851 against the Oilers?

PS - Try to answer without looking it up. It's funner that way..

God, I remember that play so well and I think it was prior to '93. It was a defenseman. There was a "B" either at the beginning or end of his name, Brian something? Can't remember whose stick he stole. To me, scoring with the stolen stick (who just did that a week ago, wrong-way curve too??) or on the resulting power play would have made it perfect.

Edit: Brian Benning!!

You're right! Brian Benning.

It was one of the funniest things I've ever seen in a hockey game. Benning took the stick from Peter Statsny, and played the rest of his shift shooting the other way. Then Statsny took a roughing penalty - he was soooo pissed at Benning for taking his stick, he chased him all over the ice trying to get his stick back while play continued.

It would have been a perfect crime if the Kings would have scored on the powerplay, but they didn't.

No checking.....


What Kings goalie gave up 9 goals during a playoff game and then tried to skate off the ice only to fall flat on his face causing him to loose two teeth?

... Mario Gosselin was the starter in net for the Kings, but he had been pulled in the last minute. Bill Ranford was the goalie for Edmonton.

I believe Taylor and Duchesne assisted on the record breaking goal, and it tied the game. The game was stopped, Gretzky said a few words and received a few gifts, then he went out when play resumed and scored the game winner in overtime. Because he's Wayne Gretzky.

Who did the Kings end up trading for the awesome goalie John Grahame in 1977?

The Kings became a much less talented team and an entirely much more physical team in January of 1986 when we dealt away the ever yammering Brian Engblom and the enigmatic Doug Smith for not one enforcer but three.

Name them and if you can, what they were most well known characteristics.

Ken Baumgartner, Sean McKenna and Larry Playfair. Can't tell you about the characteristics.

Which former Kings defenseman was also a player coach for the Long Beach Ice Dogs?

I got one what future Cy Young winner did the Kings draft in 1984?

Bonus points if you can name what future Hall of Famer, they passed up by drafting the answer above.

Tom Glavine

Brett Hull

In retrospect, I think that was a really good decision. I mean, really, why would we want Brett Hull?
