Tonight, after 45+ years of pain and purgatory, my hometown LA Kings made history and won their 1st franchise Stanley Cup on home-ice. An eighth seed to go 3-0 to start every series (4 total), 12-0 on the road (dating back to 2 wins last season against San Jose), and a steamrolling 16-4 overall playoff run. I’m so happy for my team! You guys earned the heaven you’re feeling tonight!
Brown became the first player in a Kings sweater to lift the Cup, and the second American to receive it from Commissioner Gary Bettman.
The 26-year-old Quick capped one of the greatest seasons by a goaltender in the history of the NHL. In 69 regular-season games, he went 35-21-13 — a mark that would’ve been far more impressive if the Kings hadn’t been the worst offensive team in the NHL for about four months — with a 1.95 goals-against average and .929 save percentage. You play on another planet Quickie!!!
Kopitar has the talent to be the next Gretzky…man’s got skills
and the buzzer turns “tinsel town” into “title town”
Truer words may have never been spoken.
Thanks for the magical run this year boys! Can’t wait for the DVD
