The Los Angeles Kings have finally won their first Stanley Cup title after beating the Devils during the Monday game. The sixth game of the Stanley Cup Final ended with a 6-1 victory in favor of the Los Angeles team thanks to the goals registered by captain Dustin Brown and Jeff Carter, says USA Today.
The Kings have been struggling for 45 years to win the Stanley Cup championship. Their dream finally came true on Monday when the Los Angeles players defeated their rivals, the Devils, with a 6-1 score. Kings president Luc Robitaille was the first to recall the efforts that the team has made to win the championship. He told reporters at the end of the game that he had planned to win the title since his arrival in 1984. He further added that it took them a lot of time to get their hands on the cup, but the feeling is, nevertheless, “amazing”.
The New Jersey Devils had a good start on Monday, but they lost their momentum when Steve Bernier was penalized. He received a five-minute boarding penalty because he pushed Los Angeles’ Rob Scuderi into the boards. The latter needed several minutes and medical assistance before he was able to return to the competition.
The rest of the Los Angeles players made sure they revenged Scuderi and they scored as many goals as possible. Brown, Carter and Lewis needed no more than four minutes to score three goals each and turn the game in their favor. Kings goalie, Jonathan Quick did a good job, too; the opponents never got to score more than two goals in any game of the series.
Quick spoke with reporters at the end of the game and told the press that the team will receive a lot of attention thanks to the Monday’s victory. He continued by saying that the Kings are happy to be in the spotlight because they have been fighting for a long time to obtain this title.
