Los Angeles Kings win Stanley Cup

Los Angeles Kings win Stanley Cup

12 Jun 2012 | Henrik Lundqvist

For the first time in its 45 years history Los Angeles won the Stanley Cup tonight. New Jersey Devils were defeated 6-1 in the sixth game.

With a 6-1 win in the sixth game of the 2012 Stanley Cup finals Los Angeles Kings secure their first ever championship.

Jeff Carter and Trevor Lewis scored two goals each. Dustin Brown, the second ever American born captain to win the cup, scored a goal and added two assists. Matt Greene also got on the sheet with the last goal of the game.

Jonathan Quick in the Los Angeles net made 17 saves and was the 16th ever goalie to be named playoff MVP.

The game was pretty much decided already in the first period when New Jersey's Steve Bernier got a major boarding penalty at 10:10 and Los Angeles scored three times during that 5-minute man advantage.

The LA captain Dustin Brown opened the scoring at 11:03 on a tip-in. At 12:45 Jeff Carter made it 2-0 on a deflection. Just before the Devils were about to return to full strength Trevor Lewis made it 3-0 on a rebound.

In the second period the teams scored a goal each. With his second goal of the game Jeff Carter made it 4-0 at 21:30. The only New Jersey goal of the game was scored by Adam Henrique 73 seconds before the end of the period.

New Jersey pulled goalie Martin Brodeur and  Trevor Lewis could make it 5-1 in the empty net at 56:15. Just 15 seconds later Matt Greene finished the scoring.

There were only three European players on the Los Angeles Kings roster. Slovenia's Anze Kopitar scored 20 points in the playoffs and was the first ever player from his country to win Stanley Cup. Russian defenseman Vyacheslav Voynov was in the line-up all 20 games and recorded three points. Another Russian player, forward Andrei Loktionov, was also part of the team but he was only dressed for two playoff games.
