Will LA break the Oilers Record?

By winning the cup in less than 18 games? I think they will. They are absolutely rolling over every team. Vancouver and St.Louis were better than any team left in the playoffs and they got slaughtered. Phoenix also looked out of LA's league in game 1.

Not a chance. The Kings are rolling but if they are lucky enough to go all the way, there will be some bumps in the road.

Less than 18 means 16 or 17. 17 is losing only 1 game, which they've already done (Game 4 vs VAN), so they'd need to sweep the WCF and the SCF. That's quite unlikely, so, no, they probably won't break the record even if they do win the Cup.

Lundqvist may steal a game.

I seriously doubt it, but Kings fans can hope. Going through the playoffs 16-2 is an extremely tall order and that only ties the record.

It's too early to assume they're even going to win the Cup, much less speculate about how they'd do it.

The odds have to be against them, but regardless, starting the postseason 9-1 against the Top 3 seeds in the West is remarkable.

Highly doubtful. They are barely half way to the cup

I wouldn't say they were rolling over Phoenix in Game 1. Period 1, yes, but not the whole game.

Way too early to tell. What I do find amazing is the fact that they're still undefeated on the road in the playoffs.

I do think that the Kings will win it all, but they're going to lose at least two more games in the rest of the playoffs.

Related question: If LA does break the record (which means they win out), does that mean Vancouver fans feel a bit better about their postseason?

I think they will walk by the dogs in 5

blues in 4

they would need to sweep the dogs and then they next round

I do not see the either the rangers or devils getting swepts

this has ZERO to do with Vancouver and what LA does has nothing to do with them

i think it is crazy talk just even talking about breaking stanley cup records after 1 game in the 3rd round.

talk about putting a jinx on a team.

hey what is quick going to do with his 24 hrs with the cup?
also, can you give me the winning numbers for tonights lottery?.

I'm just thinking about the Kings winning game 2, let alone 7 more games.

They'll lose at least one more game along the way.

Yeah I think they'll lose a couple games against Phoenix, don't know how they'll do vs. the Eastern winner.

Kings are not winning the cup, so no. They will not break the record.
