The 7th-seeded ’74-’75 Kings got off to a hot start offensively potting eight goals in both Game 1 and Game 2. In those games, the ’74-’75 Kings took up all six of the “stars,” but no player appeared more than once. Bob Berry led them with four points in Game 1 and then Dan Maloney led them with five points in Game 2. Then, in Game 3, the 3rd-seeded ’92-’93 Kings scored first courtesy of Jari Kurri, but the ’74-’75 Kings scored the next four goals to win 4-1. Tom Williams accounted for two of those goals. Then, on the back of two goals each from Juha Widing and Butch Goring led the ’74-’75 Kings to a 7-3 win in Game 4. They complete the sweep and now hold a 8-1 record in this tournament. They have defeated a Stanley Cup winner and a Stanley Cup runner up in their first two rounds.
