This season has been filled with the Los Angeles Kings making history. The core group of the 2012 Stanley Cup Champions that set records winning the Cup that year, continuously advances.

From Jennings Trophy winners, to goalies makings NHL records, players and coaches reaching milestones; but they didn’t stop there.

The Kings made NHL history yet again on Wednesday night after a 5-1 game seven victory over the San Jose Sharks.

The Kings became the fourth team in NHL history to have come back from a 3-0 series deficit to win a seven game Playoff series.

The three teams that made history before them was, the Toronto Maple Leafs who erased a three-nothing deficit to Detroit in the 1942 Stanley Cup Final, the 1975 New York Islanders who defeated the Pittsburgh Penguins in a league quarterfinal, and the Philadelphia Flyers who upended the Boston Bruins in the 2010 Eastern Conference semifinals. Mike Richards and Jeff Carter were part of the 201 Flyers group, Richards was the captain.

When the Kings were down 3-0 they continuously told the media and their fans that they are going to look at the series one game at a time, and try to win each game, and they did.

The Kings fought hard defensively, physically, offensively, and possessively. The Kings showed the Sharks what the team is made of and as hard as it was and the odds were against them, they managed to pull through and make history.

The players are just looking forward to the next round and have said that they will worry about the milestone later.
