Old SI Article: Waifs Who Dare To Darken Doors

I recalled seeing this cover in 1975 on SI, and how I excited I was to see the Kings getting some love (and some curse) from the vaunted SI cover.

That was the year the Kings ended up with 105 points (42-17-21), second place in the Norris Division, and 4th place overall in an 18-team league.

Great season, awful playoffs. They lost 2-1 in a three-game series to the Toronto Maple Leafs that year (for some reason, the NHL thought it was a good idea in 1975 to cheapen an 80-game season with a three-game playoff first round).

Anyway, since we have a little time between rounds, I thought I would post the article for anyone who was interested in a little Kings history. This is the cover and article from 1975.

Awesome cover and article, even though it's a solid 20 years before I was born.

The highlight of Sheldon Kannegeisser's career.
