Los Angeles Are Kings Of The NHL


The Los Angeles Kings destroyed the New Jersey Devils in game 6 of the Stanley Cup Finals on Monday night to win the Stanley Cup and reign supreme in the NHL. The Kings gained an early lead, when the New Jersey Devils were called for a 5 minute boarding penalty.

The Kings, led by captain Dustin Brown, scored 3 goals on the major penalty. Brown had a goal and assist on that power play. Carter added another two. Brown finished with 1 goal and 2 assists. He was amazing in game 6 and showed that he is the leader of the team.

New Jersey wasn't good enough tonight. They fought for wins in games 4 and 5 but the Kings were the better team. The Devils could only ride Martin Brodeur for so long. He played great during this playoff season.

Jonathan Quick wasn't tested too often on Monday but when he was called upon to make saves, he was right there to keep the puck out of the net. Quick earned the playoff MVP award and he deserved it. He was amazing all playoffs long.

The Kings earned the cup with 16 wins and only 4 losses. The Kings lost only one game on the road. That's incredible. Did I mention that the Kings were the 8th seeded team in the Western conference? That's incredible. It took the Kings until the end of the season to earn a birth into the playoffs. On Monday night, they won their first cup in their 44 year history.

The Kings were a great story this playoff season. They were fun to watch and they were exciting to watch. They captivated their fans and new fans like Sportmentary. In game 6, the Kings had their most dominant performance. With a chance to hoist Lord Stanley's cup in front of their home fans, they didn't disappoint them.

In almost 35 years of watching the NHL playoffs, I can't remember such a dominating performance throughout the playoffs. I can't believe an 8th seed was so dominant. The team's stars came to play. They were led by Jonathan Quick, Dustin Brown, Dustin Penner, Drew Doughty, Jeff Carter, Mike Richards,and Anze Kopitar.

I will remember this Stanley cup Playoffs for the rest of my life. It was one of the most memorable and exciting one's I've seen. The Kings were the reason for my excitement. It started with the Kings defeating the Canucks and then the Coyotes in the Western Conference Finals.

Los Angeles are the Kings of the NHL for 2012. Congratulations to the city and the team. I will miss watching the playoffs and look forward to next season (If there is one - Lockout now is on the horizon).
