History made in the annals of the LA Kings by snatching the Stanley Cup for the first time in front of the elated fans

It was quite a memorable day for the LA Kings after a gap of 45 years that they finally captured the kingdom of Ice Hockey and made on to the throne by winning the first Stanley cup in its franchise history. The moment came when they routed the Devils with a score of 6-1 in front of the huge crowd of about 18,858 jubilant fans at the Staples Center.

A whole life has been spent by the Los Angeles King’s Captain to lift the 36 pound silver trophy thus removing the burden of the franchisee, that has never won the NHL title, and also the sufferings of the fans came to an end that were waiting for a miracle to happen over a long time span. Goalie Jonathan Quick at once captured the Conn Smythe Trophy with his winning performance of 17 saves, thus beating the Devils with a score of 6-1 and winning the Stanley Cup finals thus becoming the first eighth seeded.

LA Kings defenseman Drew Doughty commented that this is the best moment of his career that included an Olympic gold medal. Captain Dustin Brown broke out with three points with a valuable assistance from Anze Kopitar as the Kings’ top line and the longest-tenured players capping the historic run as the first eighth seed to win and capture the cup.
