Dustin Brown of the LA Kings was really overwhelmed and he immediately snatched the Stanley Cup away from NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman, skating directly to the center ice and thrusting the Stanley Cup skyward after they were officially announced as the champion for this year’s tournament.
You might think it harsh but the LA Kings’ captain has waited for this moment long enough for him to reveal his excitement to get hold of the Cup. He has been waiting all his life for this moment to come and it finally came tonight. The long suffering of the Kings had been waiting for nearly 45 years for somebody to lift the 36-pound silver trophy and remove the burden on a franchise that had never won an NHL title ever since. This is definitely a dream come true for the Kings so you can’t blame them for behaving so wild. They have really worked hard for it.
Brown, MVP goalie Jonathan Quick and the later-blooming Kings never flinched under all that weight and you can see during the entire season that they have really prepared for this moment. After an unbelievable postseason run that ended in a triumphant flurry of blood, sweat and power-play goals in Game 6, they’re all champions.
So how did they do it? Jeff Carter and Trevor Lewis scored two goals apiece, while Quick finished his Conn Smythe Trophy-winning performance with 17 saves, and the Kings beat the New Jersey Devils with the score of 6-1 on Monday night, becoming the first eighth-seeded playoff team to win the Stanley Cup finals. That was a tough game but the LA Kings became triumphant in the end!
