Kings Win First Championship in 45 Year History!

12 Jun

The Kings became the first No. 8 seed to win the Cup since the league started seeding conferences in 1994. They went a stunning 16-4 overall and 10-1 on the road.

Long suffering Kings fans can finally celebrate.

I had a friend who texted me during the game that the refs gave this game to the Kings with that 5 minute power play.  I understand his thought on it but after I thought about it I wasn’t so sure.  After all it was a penalty.  Maybe a double minor instead of a major but that’s only a difference of a minute.  Then I thought about my beloved Blackhawks.  Their power play the last two years has been atrocious.  If it was them, they wouldn’t have scored a single goal on that pp and would have given the momentum to the Devils.

So give credit to the Kings.  They scored 3 goals on that 5 minute power play to take a 3-0 lead in the first.  There was little doubt after that.  We all knew Lord Stanley’s Cup would be making it’s home in Los Angeles for the next year.

Not even Taylor Stevens boobs could help the Devils after that.  It took a while to see her.  I was beginning to think that NBC was making a conscious decision not to show her.  The first few times they showed Deboer they zoomed in on him, even cutting off the top of his head.  It was like they were afraid to get her in the shot.  Did some uptight Christian Coalition member threaten to boycott NBC if they showed her?  I mean the ice crew girls wear less clothing then she had.  What’s the problem?  They finally did show her and she looked great.  She is fighting off cancer and is auctioning off the clothes she wore at the games to raise money to fight cancer.  You can get the details on her twitter account.

Congrats to Johnathan Quick who became the 2nd consecutive American born goalie to win the Conn Smythe for MVP.  Last year it was Tim Thomas.

In addition to that Dustin Brown became the 2nd ever American born captain to hoist the cup over his head.  Last time that happened was in 1999 when Darien Hatcher lifted it for the Dallas Stars.

So enjoy it while you can Kings and Kings fans.  It’s not easy to repeat.

Here are some pictures of the celebration.
