    The Los Angeles Kings completed one of the most improbable comebacks in Stanley Cup history in Game 3 of their 1982 playoff series with the Edmonton Oilers.

    Edmonton led 5-0 entering the third period before the Kings fought back and tied the game with just five seconds left to force overtime.

    Rookie winger Daryl Evans scored this game winner 2:35 into overtime to complete "The Miracle on Manchester" and give the Kings the victory.

    Los Angeles went on to win the series 3-2 and upset Wayne Gretzky and the heavily favored Oilers.
