Members of the Los Angeles Kings are celebrating their NHL championship while staying at Palms Casino Resort with their new Stanley Cup. The Kings are Stanley Cup champions for the first time, so they said a Las Vegas visit is the perfect celebration which was 45 years in the making.
The Los Angeles Kings’ 45-year Stanley Cup quest ended in a triumphant flourish of blood, sweat and power-play goals. After missing two chances to claim the title last week, the long-suffering Kings are NHL champions for the first time.
Winning Game 4 of the Stanley Cup finals did more than keep the Devils alive. It gave them a sniff, a scent, a feeling. Call it momentum if you want.
Adam Henrique scored the tiebreaking goal with 4:29 to play, Martin Brodeur made 21 saves, and the New Jersey Devils beat the Los Angeles Kings 3-1 on Wednesday night to avoid a sweep in the Stanley Cup finals.
After Henrique scored the tiebreaker to win Game 4 of the Stanley Cup finals on Wednesday night, he became the first rookie to get three game-winning goals in one playoff year since 1999.
The Los Angeles Kings are one win away from putting a Hollywood ending on one of the most spectacular playoff runs in NHL history.
Only three NHL teams have rallied from a 3-0 deficit to win a playoff series, and just one – the 1942 Toronto Maple Leafs – did it in the Stanley Cup finals.
The Devils had plenty of chances to score on Kings goalie Jonathan Quick, but they cashed in only one in their 2-1 overtime loss Wednesday night.
Most of the talk about the Devils and their run to the Stanley Cup finals has focused on Martin Brodeur, Ilya Kovalchuk, Zach Parise and Peter DeBoer. The guy who tends to get lost in all the talk is Travis Zajac.
Adam Henrique scored off a wild scramble in front at 1:03 into overtime and the New Jersey Devils defeated the New York Rangers 3-2 to advance to their first Stanley Cup finals since 2003.
