Los Angeles Kings Beat the New Jersey Devils to Win the 2012 Stanley Cup
The New Jersey Devils made a valiant attempt at a comeback in the series but the Los Angeles Kings closed it out by winning 6-1 in Game 6. This marks the first Stanley Cup in the team’s 45 year history.
Los Angeles is the first #8 seed to win the Cup since they started seeding conferences in 1994. You have to consider the Devils lucky to win the 2 games that they did as the Kings went 16-4 overall in the playoffs and 10-1 on the road. They made 2 big trades and a coaching change and somehow found a way to peak at just the right time of the season. You have to give props to goaltender Jonathan Quick, who played superbly in the playoffs.
You have to give respect to the Devils for making it to the finals as the #6 seed. 40 year old goalie Martin Brodeur played well throughout the playoffs but just wasn’t able to fend off the Kings on Monday night. It will be interesting to see if he comes back for another season.
