Los Angeles the city of glitz, glamour and many NBA championships can now say they are Stanley Cup champions after the Los Angeles Kings routed the New Jersey Devils 6-1 in Game 6.
The Kings scored three goals in the first period on one 5 minute major penalty to Devils Steve Bernier for boarding L.A. defensman Rob Scuderi. Bernier was given a game misconduct for the severity of the hit. The hit resulted in an injury to the face of Scuderi which, according to Rule 41.5 states if the penalty results in an injury to the face or head then it is an automatic game misconduct.
Dustin Brown scored the first goal while Jeff Carter and Trevor Lewis each scored one of their own in the first period. Jeff Carter scored again in the second period while Trevor Lewis scored again in the third period along with a goal by Matt Greene. The Devils only goal came in the second period by Adam Henrique.
After 45 years as a franchise the Kings are Stanley Cup champions. Dustin Brown became the first player in a Kings sweater to raise the cup, and the first American to receive it from NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman since Derian Hatcher in 1999.
Kings goaltender Jonathan Quick finished the 2012 playoffs with a 16-4 record, a .946 save percentage, 3 shutouts and a 1.41 goals against average to earn the Conn Smythe Trophy.
BEST OF MAXIM
BOSCO OR QUIK?
Dustin Brown is the captain of the Los Angeles Kings, and he had his turn recently with lord Stanley’s Cup, but it was his kids who seemed to have the most fun with it. On Tuesday morning Dustin filled up the Cup with chocolate milk and let his two kids, Jake and Mason, take turns drinking out of it and blowing bubbles. This is a much more creative and wholesome use of the Cup...
Justly or not, Steve Bernier will bear the blame for this one. It seems like in today's sports world it's not enough to crown a hero in victory. There must also always be a goat for the vanquished. Bernier will fill the bill for most. And there's no doubt that his reckless hit from behind that led to a five-minute major and three Los Angeles power-play goals changed the...
The Kings just won the first Stanley Cup in franchise history and captain Dustin Brown was asked by NBC’s Pierre McGuire for a few words about how it feels to finally hoist the Cup. “That’s why we f*cking play,” Brown told Pierre. Yeah, the f-bomb was on live TV and WTF Editor Matt had his cellphone rolling. The quality of this video is about as bad as it gets, but it’s...
This is the shot heard round the hockey world tonight. This check from behind by New Jersey Devils forward Steve Bernier on Kings Defenseman Rob Scuderi that lead to a five minute major and a game misconduct for Bernier - the Kings pounced on the opportunity and they were able to bury the Devils on the major power play as they got three goals in five minutes - in essence putting...
Dustin Brown had a moment of indecision. He couldn't seem to figure out exactly how to lift the Stanley Cup. Left hand on top, or right hand? Brown finally got it, and 45 years of frustration came out.
Kings fans, who had endured the lowest of lows over the last five decades and were 19 years removed from their previous (and only) trip to the Stanley Cup final, roared their...

Congratulations to the LA Kings on their victory, and congratulations to Rob Scuderi, who is awesome and deserves great things.
Enjoy your summer, friends.
And, as always:
Just when the Los Angeles Kings needed to set the tone early in Monday’s Stanley Cup victory, Dustin Brown responded.
And who better to lead the team to it’s first-even Stanley Cup championship.
Here’s how it all got started Monday:
The goal was his 8th of the playoffs. And just over a minute later, he assisted Jeff Carter’s goal which made it a 2-0 game.
New Jersey Devils forward Steve Bernier boarded Los Angeles defenseman Rob Scuderi. He hit him from the back, smashed his face into the glass and created a nasty cut on Scuderi’s mug. It was a five-minute major penalty and a game misconduct. It was just about halfway through the first period. It was also effectively [...]
If anyone doubted the power of goaltending, all they have to do is watch this year's Stanley Cup Finals. It hasn't been a battle of big offenses, its been a duel between the pipes between future Hall of Famer Martin Brodeur and rising star Jonathan Quick. A good goaltender can neutralize even the best offensive teams and can carry a team to a Stanley Cup championship...
When the LA Kings took a 3-0 series lead, Flyers fans started to accept the fact that the likes of Mike Richards, Jeff Carter, Simon Gagne, Justin Williams, John Stevens, Terry Murray, and Ron Hextall would all get to experience the ultimate goal.
Last night it finally happened. The LA Kings defeated the NJ Devils 6-1 to take the series 4-2 and win the 2012 Stanley Cup.
The New Jersey Devils' dreams of a historical comeback were all but dashed less than 11 minutes into Game 6 of the Stanley Cup finals.
Just 10:10 in, Steve Bernier drilled Los Angeles defenseman Rob Scuderi from behind into the end boards and essentially took his club out of the game. Bernier was given a major penalty and was ejected from the game.
The Kings took full advantage...
When the regular season starts in October, every single team in the National Hockey League has dreams of hoisting Lord Stanley's Cup. To win the prized trophy, each team must go through 82 regular season games, qualify for the playoffs, and then win four best-of-seven series. Today, a champion was crowned.
On behalf of the entire Puck Drunk Love staff, we'd like to say congratulations...
