Congratulations to the Los Angeles Kings!!!

The Los Angeles Kings advanced to the Stanley Cup Finals for the second time in franchise history as they beat the Phoenix Coyotes 4-3 in overtime in Game 5 of the Western Conference Finals on Tuesday night at Jobing.com Arena.

The Kings are the second team in NHL history to reach the Stanley Cup Finals as the No. 8 seed in either conference. The first team was the 2006 Edmonton Oilers, a team that included current Kings Matt Greene and Jarret Stoll.

The Kings have a 12-2 in this postseason, and have become the seventh team in NHL history to reach the Stanley Cup Finals in 14 games. That’s since 1987, when the league went to a four-round, best-of-seven series format. No team has reached the Finals in fewer than 14 games.
