NHL Playoffs 2012: 14 Memorable Moments of the LA Kings’ 8-1 Playoff Run

What do the No. 1 and 2 seeds in the Western Conference now have in common?

They were both eliminated by the surging eighth seed, the Los Angeles Kings.

The Kings closed out their 4-0 series sweep of the St. Louis Blues today with a 3-1 victory. The Kings are now in the conference finals for the first time since 1993, when the team went to the Stanley Cup finals. They are also the first team in nine years to knock off a No. 1 and a No. 2 seed in the same playoffs.

It's been an unreal run so far, but the Kings are only half done and the best is yet to come. But for now, let's take a look back at some of the best moments from the Kings' first two series against the Blues and the Canucks.

Also, feel free to share your own memorable moments from this series in the comments if I missed anything you thought was particularly memorable!
