    After filling STAPLES Center to only 97.8% of capacity in a 2-1 win over Florida on December 3, 2011, the Los Angeles Kings have since sold out 76 consecutive regular season and playoff games to set a franchise record.

    The previous record of 75 consecutive sellouts was set between December 8, 1990 and October 8, 1992, during the time colloquially known as the Wayne Gretzky Era.

    97.8%? That's embarassing. I can't believe the numbers ever got that low :sarcasm:

    I'd like to thank all the bandwagoning, dirty-hits-by-Brown supporting, boo-when-a-player-gets-injured, fans for making this possible. Well done folks!

    The worst is when the crowd jeers at Quick when he makes a simple save after one of his rare bad goals. :shakehead

    Glad to hear. What would be the streak if that Florida game was a sell-out?

    My Clippers currently have a 96-game streak. :) Pretty sure the Lakers have a much longer streak going on right now than both the Clippers and Kings.

    No offence dude/dudette but you are one of the most negative fans on here and it turns out your a clipper fan, there is great irony there

    :laugh: No need to say "No offence" if you're trying to offend me anyway. The Kings weren't exactly a model franchise pre-2012 so I know the definition of down years without being a Clipper fan. BTW, not being a massive homer = negative? Yeah okay

    Difference between being a massive homer and being negative. I'm probably the farthest thing from a homer, I just don't think the sky is falling if we don't start the season 12-2-0, or something like that.

    the point the negative nellies like yourself,kingkopitar,puckchoochoo,etc miss is this is the best time in kings historybar none,these are homegrown kings for the most part, ENJOYit don't sit around trying to prove your smarter than people who do this for a living and for once in franchise history are hockey people. I understand that todays culture is setup for instant gratification but in real life it takes time to 1) find what problems you have, make sure those are not just tweeks needed and then to make the nec. moves to fix them, it has always been said not to judge a team for the first 20-25 games a year, yet there are screams for firing DL,replacing Sutter, trading away guys who 4 months ago were in the WCF and 16 momths ago won a freaking cup because they are only playing 600 hockey, one of your posts in another thread says quick isn't as good without an elite defence in front of him, well no **** who is, but that so so goalie carried this team for long long stretches on his head but that statement alone says volume, how dare he be average 10 games in, there is no team that can play at peak for 82 games in a parity league like the NHL,like your namesake who is the best at grass or clay (not sure which and don't care its tennis afterall) and that is one man to get up and motivated now try getting 23 guys to perform at peak for 7 months,the angels are the best apr/may team around but rarely are they there in aug-sept, like baseball this is a marathon and there are ebbs and flows.......like I said earlier this is the best King years since the triple crown days, IMO the gretzky years were mercinaries and didn't feels as good winning as the last few years have, kinda of like the yankees getting Clemans(sp)....this team is built right and will contend for awhile .....*****ing after every loss and hiding after the wins is comical
