Kings Win 1st Stanley Cup

The Los Angeles Kings won their first Stanley Cup in franchise history tonight with a decisive 6-1 victory over the New Jersey Devils in front of the home crowd at The Staples Center in Game 6.

Now my first instinct is to say that there’s something unnatural about the Stanley Cup going to southern California. On the other hand, you don’t get more old school than Darryl Sutter who turned the team’s fortunes around after taking over coaching duties last December.

I mean at least this version of the Kings wasn’t getting their motivation from Tony Robbins. His pop psychology was no match for Montreal Canadiens head coach Jacques Demers who took one look at Marty McSorley’s stick and it was all over.

Of course, that was in 1993 when Patrick Roy hoisted the Cup over his head. It marks the last time a Canadian team winning Lord Stanley’s Cup. Well, there’s always next year. The Toronto Maple Leafs have been saying this since 1967 which, by coincidence, was the year the Kings entered the NHL.
