As I reflect on 2021-22, I keep looking back to May 13 to see how far things have come.
2021-05-13. The Kings' season ended with a loss in Colorado. Due to COVID rescheduling, the Kings had to play late games against a Presidents' Trophy contender
They lost both games against the Avalanche by a combined 11-1 score in their final two regular-season games.
13 May 2022 LA Kings flew to Edmonton for Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Playoffs. In 365 days, the Kings went from meaningless games to winning their first playoff series since 2014.
Even though they lost 2-0 to the Oilers last night, they've grown tremendously in the last year.
It's okay to be disappointed about last night's game and the series overall. This was a winnable series, so losing is disappointing.
Home team won Game 6. Road winnable Game 7 The Kings had seven chances to win
