Los Angeles Kings: 5 Most Painful Moments Ever

During the spring, the eighth-seeded Los Angeles Kings blasted through their competition, winning 16 of 20 games to win the 2012 Stanley Cup, tying for second-best playoff winning percentage ever.

It happened so quickly, with a series of strokes and bounces electrifying a bullet train of success.

Two months later, and I still can't believe it. 

So instead of focusing on that triumphant blur—it's still much too fast—I'm going to process the franchise's ultimate victory through the pain that the organization had bequeathed its followers over the last 45 years.  Before June 11, 2012.

These are my five most painful moments as a Los Angeles Kings fan.

I was seven when Wayne Gretzky came to LA in 1988, so I can't speak honestly about the terrible things that transpired before.

But all true Kings fans will have their own five painful moments that they've nursed, from five to 45 years.

What are your five?
