It's the upset of the playoffs, and a loss that could significantly alter the future for two franchises: The No. 8 seeded Los Angeles Kings eliminated the Presidents' Trophy winning Vancouver Canucks in five games, thanks to this Jarret Stoll goal at 4:27 of overtime on Sunday night, 2-1:

Brad Richardson's goal at 3:21 of the third period tied the game, after Henrik Sedin's power-play goal in the first staked the Canucks to a 1-0 lead.

The Kings advance to face the St. Louis Blues in Round 2 of the Western Conference Playoffs, as Jonathan Quick (26 saves) takes on the NHL's top defense. Frozen Notes has a quick glance at that series.
