“I think our players have just as much fun with this game as our fans do,” said Luc Robitaille, a future Hall of Famer and current President of Business Operations for the Kings who played in the first-ever Frozen Fury in 1997 when the Kings beat the Avalanche, 4-3, at the MGM Grand Garden Arena.

“The crowds have gotten bigger and bigger with each passing year, and I think that’s because the players are so accessible during their time in Las Vegas,” Robitaille continued. “One of my best memories of Frozen Fury is walking past thousands of Kings fans while making my way from the hotel to the arena.”

Kings rookie Patrick O'Sullivan scored with 52 seconds remaining as the Kings overcame a two-goal deficit with a three-goal third-period outburst for an exciting, come-from-behind 3-2 win over the Avalanche. Colorado's John Laliberte and Jeff Finger put the Avalanche up 2-0, but Lubomir Visnovsky halfed the lead when he scored 6:56 into the third period on assists from Alexander Frolov and Craig Conroy. Frolov would later tie the score off an assist from Sean Avery to set up O'Sullivan's heroics. Dan Cloutier made 22 saves to earn the win. Check out this photo gallery from Tom Kostopoulos.

Coming off a year layoff, the Kings and Avalanche once again fed off the Vegas energy to provide a thrilling finish. Steve Konowalchuk beat L.A. goalie Jason LaBarbera 57 seconds into overtime to give the Avs a 2-1 triumph over the Kings. Following two scoreless periods, Dustin Brown got the Kings on the board with their only goal 4:07 into the third period. Despite an outstanding effort from LaBarbera and some fancy dance moves from Jeremy Roenick, Colorado managed to tie the game on a short-handed goal by Antti Laaksonen.

Frozen Fury 6 may have started slow but that was no indication of what was to come. After the Avalanche netted the only goal of the first period, Los Angeles and Colorado combined for 10 more goals, including seven in the third period, as L.A. snuck by with a 6-5 win. Having already scored as a member of Colorado in Frozen Fury 4, Adam Deadmarsh redeemed himself in the eyes of Kings fans, netting the game-winner for L.A. Eric Belanger, Derek Armstrong, Ziggy Palffy and Alexander Frolov also scored for the Kings while Felix Potvin out-dueled Patrick Roy in net, making 30 saves.

Trailing 1-0 after the first period, the Kings exploded for four goals in the final two periods to walk away from Frozen Fury 5 with a 4-3 triumph over the San Jose Sharks. Randy Robitaille and Ziggy Palffy helped L.A. climb back into the game with second period goals and Jaroslav Bednar and Jozef Stumpel finished the Sharks off, scoring two goals in a 58-second span in the third period. Kings goalie Felix Potvin had 26 saves for L.A. in the win.

The fourth version of Frozen Fury was a race to the finish as for three periods, the Kings and Colorado Avalanche traded goals back-and-forth, tying the score on four separate occasions. It was the Avalanche, however, that had the last laugh, thanks to a late third period goal by Colorado forward Chris Drury with just 31 seconds left in the game. Peter Forsberg was a force for the Avs, accumulating two goals and two assists, while Rob Blake dished out two assists and netted a goal of his own for L.A.

It didn't take long for Frozen Fury 3 to turn into a romp. L.A. defenseman Aki-Petteri Berg scored 21 seconds into the first period, helping lead the way to a 4-0 victory over the Phoenix Coyotes. Craig Johnson, Dan Bylsma and Len Barrie all tallied goals for Los Angeles while Stephane Fiset pitched a shutout in net, stopping all 19 shots he faced.

Game 2 - Colorado Avalanche 5, L.A. Kings 4

Frozen Fury 2 was unique for several reasons, not the least of which was that it marked the only double header in the history of the event. It also featured a glimpse into the future, as the Kings and Avs settled Game 1 with a post-game shootout, something that would become a regularity in the NHL seven years later. Game 1 of the 1998 Frozen Fury would end in a 2-2 tie with Pavel Rosa and Glen Murray tallying the two Kings goals. The two teams then faced off in a 10-round overtime shootout, which Los Angeles would win 3-2. The two teams met up again the very next night, only this time it would be Colorado that came out on top 5-4. Leading by a goal heading into the third period, the Kings were unable to hold on, despite a goal and an assist from Luc Robitaille.
Donald MacLean

The first ever Frozen Fury debuted with a bang, as Kings center Donald MacLean netted the game-winner 2:51 into overtime to give L.A. a 4-3 victory. MacLean's goal came after Colorado forward Joe Sakic sent the game into overtime by scoring with just 40 seconds left in the third period, knotting the score at three. Third-period goals from Olli Jokinen and Craig Johnson helped Los Angeles gain an edge after trailing 2-1 through two periods.
