It seems that no Los Angeles Kings player can be on television anymore without dropping at least one f-bomb.

Congrats to the Kings

Congratulations to the Los Angeles Kings and their Stanley Cup. I hadn't got a chance to say that on this site quite yet, and I offer many apologies for that fact.

LA Kings' Jonathan Quick beats censors on live TV

One way to rile up a crowd during a typical boilerplate speech is throw in a four-letter word to spice things up.  Los Angeles Kings goalie Jonathan Quick did just that not once but three times with his profane praise of his teammates during a rally celebrating the team's Stanley Cup Championship on Thursday at the packed Staples Center.
