2012 Los Angeles Kings (16-4)

While skating to the first Stanley Cup in franchise history, the eighth-seeded Kings went 16-4, not quite equaling the NHL single postseason winning percentage mark of .889, set by the Oilers in 1988, but good enough for a place among the best of all time. While eliminating top-seeded Vancouver in five games, sweeping second-seeded St. Louis, downing third-seeded Phoenix in five, and besting Eastern Conference Champion New Jersey in six, the Kings also tied the Devils' record of 10 consecutive wins on the road in one playoff tournament. Here's a look back at dominant postseason runs since the NHL's expansion campaign of 1967-68.
