The 1994–95 Los Angeles Kings season saw the Kings finish fifth in the Pacific Division with a record of 16-23-9, for 41 points. Defense proved to be problematic for the Kings, as they allowed a league-high 1,668 shots (34.8 per game) and finished tied for 23rd overall in goals allowed, with 174. Their offense was more reliable, as the Kings averaged nearly 3 goals scored per game. Despite missing a quarter of the season, Rick Tocchet still led the team in goals with 18.

On May 2, the Dallas Stars were in 7th place in the Western Conference with 42 points while the Kings were tied with the San Jose Sharks for 8th place with 41 points (16-22-9). However, the Kings lost the final game of the season on May 3 to the Chicago Blackhawks by a score of 5-1. Meanwhile, the Sharks came from behind to tie the Vancouver Canucks 3-3 in their final game of the season and, in doing so, jumped up to 7th place while the Stars fell into to 8th place. The Sharks' win combined with the Kings' loss meant that the Kings would finish in 9th place and therefore miss the playoffs.
