The Los Angeles Kings finally ended 45 years of futility, bagging their first-ever Stanley Cup with a 6-1 victory over the New Jersey Devils in Game Six of the finals Monday night at Staples Center in Los Angeles.
Dustin Brown scored two goals and issued two assists, while Jonathan Quick made 17 saves and was named MVP.
The Kings took a 3-0 series lead before falling twice, but made sure to seal the title on Monday to become the first-ever playoff eighth seeds to claim the title.
Martin Brodeur saved 19 shots for the Devils, with rookie Adam Henrique delivering New Jersey’s lone goal.
The Kings were an expansion team in 1967.
