There’s a first time for everything. The Los Angeles Kings won the Stanley Cup for the first time in the franchise’s 45-year history Monday night in Game 6 of the finals against the New Jersey Devils. The Kings ran away from the Devils with a 6-1 victory on Los Angeles. The Kings had a 3-0 series lead over the Devils before New Jersey mounted a comeback in the series and won games 4 and 5. The No. 8 seed Kings are also the lowest-seeded team ever to win the Stanley Cup. Jeff Carter and Trevor Lewis scored two goals apiece while playoff MVP Jonathan Quick made 17 saves. Captain Dustin Brown had a goal and two assists for the Kings as well.
