Congratulations to the Los Angeles Kings for winning the Stanley Cup. They had an amazing run, and now hold the record for the most games played in one post-season. They had to overcome a 3-0 series deficit, had 2 very tough 7 game series against the Ducks and Blackhawks, and faced a tough Rangers team. The Finals were closer than it looks on paper. The Rangers could be ahead in this series right now. In all but 1 game, the Rangers had a lead heading into the 3rd period. In every one of those games, the Kings took over the 3rd. Lundqvist was spectacular, but didn’t get enough help on either end.
I couldn’t keep my eyes off game 5 last night. It was intense hockey and a very exciting goaltending battle. They exchanged scoring chances in overtime. Multiple hit the post or went just wide, and there were plenty of outstanding saves. A great block saved a goal for the Kings, as the net was wide open. The Kings finally ended it a few minutes later.
