Chicago vs Los Angeles–Sports Playoffs History

May 23, 2014

The cities of Chicago and Los Angeles have a storied history, and often a direct sports rivalry.

The current NHL semi-final series between the Chicago Blackhawks and the Los Angeles Kings is the thirteenth playoff meeting between sports teams from the two large U.S. cities.

Hockey, Basketball, Football and Baseball Teams from the cities of Chicago and Los Angeles have met twelve times before in playoff sports series.

Twice the cities have met for the league championship. In 1959, the L.A. Dodgers, in just their second West coast season, beat the Chicago White Sox in the World Series.

By 1991 the Bulls were in the NBA East and Chicago beat the Lakers to win the first of their six championships.
