LA Kings win Stanley Cup over New Jersey Devils

The LA Kings won the Stanley Cup after a 6-1 victory over the New Jersey Devils on Monday night at Staples Center.

It was as convincing as it was surprising for the Kings, who squeezed into the final playoff spot, then upset the first-place Vancouver Canucks in the first round before dispatching St. Louis, Phoenix and, finally, New Jersey.

“It’s pretty amazing,” forward Jeff Richards said after the game. “You don’t know how you’re going to feel until you actually do it.”
