There was serious hatred on both sides of the Kings-Canucks battles, especially after the teams met a few times in the 2011 and 2012 playoffs – reminding fans of their epic battles from the early ’90s, especially their classic series in 1993 featuring unlikely hero Gary Shuchuk in the team’s longest game in their history.
