With much of the sporting world currently focussed on Los Angeles basketball the LA Kings did their best to steal some of the limelight last night.

The NHL team defeated the San Jose Sharks 5-1 in Game Seven last night to secure one of the greatest comebacks in Stanley Cup history.

The Kings had lost the first three games of the series before rallying to win four on the bounce - a feat only previously managed by three teams in the history of the NHL playoffs.

Toronto (1942), the Islanders (1975), and Philadelphia (2010) are the only other teams to have trailed 0-3 and still progressed.

LA drew on their previous playoff experience to fight back in the seven-game series, with Drew Doughty, Tyler Toffoli, Tanner Pearson, Anze Kopitar and captain Dustin Brown scoring in the 5-1 rout:

"This is something we're all going to remember for the rest of our lives. We're not done yet (though). We have to move on," said Doughty when told of their historic achievement.

The Anaheim Ducks await for the Kings as they progress to the second round of the NHL playoffs after a truly remarkable comeback.
