A Hollywood ending for a true Hollywood story! Congratulations to the Los Angeles KINGS! The 2012 Stanley Cup champs!
Los Angeles is #1!
It is OVER! The Los Angeles Kings after 45 years of trying have won the Stanley Cup! I will wrap this up quick so you can enjoy the photos and video. The 1st goal of the game came with 11 minutes gone in the 1st period. Steve Bernier took a questionable 5 minute boarding penalty and Los Angeles took advantage and scored 3 goals in 4 minutes. In true leader captain fashion Dustin Brown scored the opening goal of the game. Jeff Carter scored the 2nd and Trevor Lewis scored the 3rd. The hit was definitely questionable and one of the biggest factors would be that seconds before Jarret Stoll hit Stephen Gionta from behind in the same fashion and no call. Jeff Carter scored again early in the 2nd period and LA had a 4-0 lead. Adam Henrique scored at the tail end of the period and got New Jersey on the board but it wasn't enough. Trevor Lewis scored again for his Kings and Matt Greene scored unassisted for a 6-1 final! Wow! It was a dirty game as far as penalties go. LA only took 3 penalties the whole game while New Jersey took 9 including a 5 minute major, misconducts and game misconducts. Jonathan Quick faced 18 shots and stopped 17 of them. Martin Brodeur faced 24 and stopped 19 of them. One LA goal was scored on an empty net. All in all in was a great series to watch and Game 6 was a great great game. LA after 45 years, joining the NHL in the expansion finally gets to celebrate! Congratulations Los Angeles Kings! The 2012 Stanley Cup champs! And PS if there is only one video you watch here today, watch the one with Jonathan Quick and Martin Brodeur shaking hands. Hockey is a fast, physical sport but at the end of the day the players, especially goalies, respect each other and they tell each other that!
