Kings 2012 SC Playoffs Records Recap

Well, I haven't seen this elsewhere, so I thought I would do a little research and establish a thread for the records recap and any information you guys would like to add. (I've limited my research to going back to 1917, when the current league, as presently constituted, was formed.)

I know a lot of these were stated by TV commentators throughout the playoffs, but I wanted to also note which team's record was broken, and how long it had been.

Here goes:

10 playoff wins in a row on the road in one playoff season. New NHL record, breaks the old one of 7 by the Chicago Black Hawks, 2010.

12 playoff wins in a row on the road, consecutive playoff seasons. New NHL record, breaks the old one of 9 by the New York Islanders, 1982 through 1983.

10 playoff road wins total in one playoff season. Ties an NHL record with the New Jersey Devils, 1995 and 2000, and the Calgary Flames, 2004.

First team ever to start out every series 3-0 in wins since the new NHL playoff format of four seven-game series began in 1986-87. The first previous team to go up 3-0 in every series in a playoff season were the Montreal Canadiens, who did it in all three of all their series in 1976, sweeping two of them, and going 12-1 that playoff season. (Montreal was exempt from playing in the preliminary round in that year.)

Lowest total of goals allowed in playoff season: 30. New NHL record since the NHL playoff format of four seven-game series began in 1986-87. The last team to get under 30 was the Montreal Canadiens in 1978, who allowed 29 goals in the three seven-game series format in that year. (As in 1976, there was a preliminary round that Montreal was exempt from.)

First lower-seeded team to beat seeds 1,2, and 3 since the Calgary Flames did it in 2004.

First 8th-seeded team in the current NHL playoff format to win the Stanley Cup.

Goalie: New NHL record GAA 1.41 for any goalie to play at least 15 games in a playoff season.

Goalie: NHL record for save percentage of .946 for a goalie to play at least 15 games in a playoff season. (Since this statistic was kept; can't find them prior to 1970s.)

Finally, there is this: not a record, but damn impressive...look at the goal differential column, compared to all the other teams in the playoffs. Made me do a double-take. (Source for this image: nhl-reference.com.)



Well, that's all I got for now. If I am missing something, please add to the thread. I am sure I am...what a playoff run, by any team, very impressive, made all the more fun because it was our Kings.

I knew I would forget something.

16-4 record, ties for second best among several teams since the NHL went to four seven-game playoff format in 1986-1987. Only the Edmonton Oilers in 1988 have a better playoff season record of 16-2.

I will dig up who we tied later, need to go run an errand right now.

Here are the teams that are tied with the Kings for second overall in playoff record since the NHL went to the four series seven game format in 1986-87:

1997: Detroit Red Wings
1995: New Jersey Devils
1993: Montreal Canadiens

In addition, another record:

15-2 in their first 17 games, tying the Edmonton Oilers in 1988.

16-4 should be a new record for the cap era where there are some rules that create a degree of parity.

Also I believe we have a perfect OT record, three goals in the same power play, fastest three goals as well. Also, most bandwagon fans Highest bandwagon to real fan ratio.

1. Number of playoff victories without a loss: 4-0, ties us with the following teams for 3rd place overall since 1917:

Quebec Nordiques 1985
Los Angeles Kings 2001

NHL record is held by the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim at 7-0 in 2003, followed by the Buffalo Sabres at 5-0 in 2006.

That research took over an hour, hat tip to the following site:

http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/feature/?id=6226

2. Three goals on the same power play has been done before, I remember Bob Miller mentioning it, I have no idea on how to actually research that particular tidbit. He also said that was the second fastest three goals on the power play in history, he did not say which team held the fastest. I got the impression that it was more than one power play.

Understandable.

Hey St Louis, you dominated us for a decade, swept us out of the first round in consecutive years, concussed our goalie and humiliated us on a five minute major. And many of your fans taunted us and kicked us when were down. I think I speak for most Kings' fans when I say that we don't harbor any ill will toward you anymore.

Because it's the cup

Another one:

The Kings are the first team to allow 3 goals or less per game in an entire Stanley Cup Playoffs season since the Montreal Canadiens did it in 1967-68 (coincidentally, the Kings first NHL season of their existence): 44 years.

Some of this research is exhaustive. Thank God for the Internet! Source: http://dropyourgloves.com.

I'm sure someone already brought it up but did anyone notice that Jack Johnson scored the GWG in the first game of the season while Jeff Carter scored the GWG in the last one? How ironic.

Not exactly a record - but this seemed like a good place for this:
"...the Kings became the first champion to use only six defencemen the entire playoffs since the 1980 New York Islanders."

#44. #43 is also about us...

I don't know if this could be worded better or if it's because I started drinking at 4am but this can't be right.

Every team that has won the cup under the current playoff system has 16 wins in one season

Again it may be the drinking but
Didn't the Kings win 8 straight

Game 5 vs VCR=1
Swept St Louis= 5
1,2,3 vs Phoenix=8

I think any record or any fact that is a "long time coming" is appropriate to this thread...I saw this earlier today, was going to post it myself, but forgot. Age.

Sorry, it should have said, "number of OT playoff games without a loss."

As far as eight in a row goes, I didn't look that up. Not sure if that is a record or not. No announcer mentioned it at the time, so I didn't give it much of a thought.

So to recap, this should read "OT" games.

When you think about it, going 7-0 in overtime in the Stanley Cup playoffs is just ****ing unbelievable. I am not sure that record is EVER going to be matched, but you never know.

One more thing that has not been mentioned anywhere (as far as I can tell), and is really not a record:

The Kings did not score more than 5 goals all season long, including the playoffs, until the very last game in the Final, and got 6 from as unlikely a source as you could get: Matt Greene.

What an incredible playoff run. Still can't get over it. The celebration continues on deep into July.
