The Los Angeles Kings say they are missing the puck that was on the ice when the franchise won their first Stanley Cup. 

Rich Hammond of LA Kings Insider believes New Jersey's Patrik Elias has the puck.  

"The following video of the last two minutes of the game, and the ensuing celebration, clearly shows New Jersey’s Patrik Elias flip the puck into his glove and then skate off the ice. After it goes into Elias’ glove, it’s not seen again. Elias goes to the Devils’ bench, then returns to the ice after a few moments for the handshake line."

"I’ve made queries to the highest levels of Kings management, and nobody knows the whereabouts of the puck. After the handshake line, Elias curiously hands his stick to someone in the crowd, but he doesn’t appear to toss the puck. So, where it is, Patrik? In theory, he could have handed it to someone in the handshake line. If he did, it’s a marvelously kept secret. Elias wouldn’t be so petty as to keep the puck, would he?"

Does Patrik Elias of the Devils have the Kings’ winning Stanley Cup puck?

The L.A. Kings have possession of the Stanley Cup, and at the end of the day that’s likely all they care about.

Congratulations to the Los Angeles Kings!

Congratulations to the 2011-2012 Stanley Cup Champion Los Angeles Kings!  I don’t think anyone really expects to see a team dominate their way through a postseason the way the Kings did…and they did it as an 8th seed.  Kudos to the entire organization, from the top all the way down to the bottom.  They were patient building this team and knew when to make a splash with some...

How did I not know about this ahead of time?

The Kings were in on the Star Wars joke the whole time! And by that, I don't mean "the thing that I did where I wrote Los Angeles Kings into the script of Star Wars". I mean "the thing where they made three mediocre moves as a prequil to three tremendous movies".
