Get the details on how the Los Angeles Kings won the Stanley Cup for the first time this week.
The LA Kings won their first Stanley Cup this week. Jeff Carter and Trevor Lewis scored two goals apiece, playoff MVP Jonathan Quick made 17 saves in his latest stellar performance, and the Kings beat the New Jersey Devils 6-1 Monday night in Game 6 of the finals, becoming the first eighth-seeded playoff team to win the league title.
After taking a 3-0 series lead and then losing two potential clinching games last week, the Kings finished ferociously at Staples Center just when the sixth-seeded Devils appeared to have a chance for one of the biggest comebacks in finals history.
The Kings are the first team to clinch the Stanley Cup on their home ice since the Anaheim Ducks did it five years ago.
