More history – of the 25th kind – to be made today?

Some of the best creations to ever come out of the NHL’s Marketing Department are the ‘History Will Be Made’ commercials.

In about 30 second intervals they capture the greatest moments in hockey by simply using clips from a game, some music and a thought provoking question.

Even though the Kings are still searching for their first Stanley Cup, the team and their current roster of players have celebrated several momentous post-season events – including a few on this specific day.

Take a look…

April 25, 1993 – Kings def. Flames 3-1, Robb Stauber‘s first playoff game

April 25, 1997 – Ryan Smyth scores game-winning-goal in double-OT

April 25, 1999 – Michal Handzus plays in his first NHL playoff game

April 25, 2002 – Kings def. Avalanche 1-0 in OT, Felix Potvin shutout

April 25, 2006 – Jarret Stoll scores game-winning-goal in double-OT

April 25, 2011 – TBD

Tonight at 7pm the puck drops in downtown Los Angeles. Can the Kings muster up so more history and force a game seven?

That will still have to wait a few hours.

Until then, check out this interview with Stauber, where he relives the Kings 1993 playoff run.  After all, without him, they most likely wouldn’t have made it out of the first round.

Every series has a playoff hero.  Who will get the job done for the Kings this year?
