The Kings Celebrate Stanley Cup Win Next To Devastated Henrik Lundqvist

Alec Martinez Was Mic'd Up For His Double-OT Stanley Cup Winner

Los Angeles Kings defenseman Alec Martinez deposited a meaty rebound in the back of the net at 14:43 in double-overtime, giving the Kings a 3-2 win and the Stanley Cup.

Kings One Win Away From Stanley Cup; Rangers Sliding On Their Faces

The first thing that grabs the eye is, obviously, just how close this came to crossing the line and giving the Kings a 4-0 lead. Not really a big deal, but with 10 minutes left in the game a three-goal lead is not insurmountable. A fourth goal, though, would have emptied the Garden and packed Penn Station. Instead,… » 6/09/14 11:11pm 6/09/14 11:11pm

Kings Score Buzzer-Beater Goal To End First Period

The Kings took their first lead of the series just before time expired in the first period of Game 3.

Hockey Night In Canada's "Entertaining" Darryl Sutter Montage Is Great

Hockey Night In Canada continues to have fun doing its thing and tonight, before Game 3 between the Kings and Rangers in New York, HNIC poked some fun at Kings coach Darryl Sutter.

The Marty St. Louis Special

This one-timer from Derek Stepan to Martin St. Louis gave the Rangers a brief 3-1 lead in the second period.

L.A. Kings Put Will Ferrell "Go Kings Go" Video Sign Outside MSG

There is a monstrous video screen with Will Ferrell's mug shouting "Go Kings Go," and other ravings about losing his mind, in the shadow of the Empire State Building. The video screen is on the corner of 33rd and 7th avenue, one of the busier intersections in New York. For those unfamiliar with the city, that means… » 6/07/14 11:03am 6/07/14 11:03am

The Los Angeles Kings Have Lost The Stanley Cup-Winning Puck

No one could blame the Los Angeles Kings for losing track of anything in the immediate delirium that accompanies the clinching of the franchise's first Stanley Cup, but if there's one thing you're going to want to keep dibs on in the aftermath, it would be the whereabouts of the final puck.

What The Kings' Stanley Cup Celebration Looked Like From Inches Away

Having a front-row seat during the Stanley Cup-clinching Game 6 was surely a treat for any Kings fan inside the Staples Center, but one lucky guy had his videocam running as the celebratory huddle made its way to the boards and within inches of his face. It's the kind of raw, unfiltered footage that gives us a rare… » 6/13/12 7:40pm 6/13/12 7:40pm

Kings Coach Darryl Sutter Doesn't Understand Your Question, Sir

It's almost as if Los Angeles Kings coach Darryl Sutter would've preferred hoisting the Stanley Cup tonight rather than fielding inane questions that both misidentify and mispronounce players' names. (C'mon, LA media, this is getting ridiculous.) Puck Daddy's got the rough transcript, though it lacks the full effect… » 6/07/12 1:15am 6/07/12 1:15am
