12 goals-against in back-to-back playoff games -- is that bad?

Let's take a walk back in time. The Kings have allowed more than 10 goals in 2 consecutive playoff games 21 times (note: I did not count any one game in more than one pair -- for example, if they allowed 5, 8, 3 in three consecutive games, I did not count it as a 13 and an 11, just as 13):

  • 2011 -- 12
  • 2010 -- 13
  • 2000 -- 10
  • 1998 -- 10
  • 1993 -- 14, 11, 11
  • 1990 -- 13, 11, 11
  • 1989 -- 13
  • 1988 -- 15, 13
  • 1987 -- 19, 11
  • 1982 -- 11, 10
  • 1981 -- 16
  • 1977 -- 14, 11
  • 1968 -- 13
As an aside, the cup-run season, 1992-93, was especially bad if you look at the regular season. That team had, in the regular season, GA 10+ games of 17, 16, 15, 14, 13, 13, 12, 12, 12,  12, 11, 11, 10, including one string of 29 goals-against in 4 games. Then, in the playoffs, 14, 11, 11.
