I am happy for the LA fans. I think Marty messed up with those first 2 goals, and after that it seemed the Devils didn't have a chance. But at least it happened early, so I was able to watch other shows!

Refs called the game early, changed dynamics of the game, terrible game to watch thereafter. Agree with NSHL10, disappointing.

Are you a real hockey fan? You're supposed to watch to the bitter end.

Congratulations to the Kings for their first SC Championship in team history!

Next season will be a blast. If they can come out playing like they did in the playoffs this year, the NHL may see a team unlike any other in history. This may just be the beginning of some very good times for Kings fans in the years to come.

KINGS FOREVER!!!!!

Hats off to LA. The run thru Vancouver and St. Louis was amazing. Likely one of the best overall playoff performances of all-time.

Next year I hope things are back to normal with Detroit kicking a$$ and taking names in both phases of the season.

I disagree with the comments about the officiating. The "hit from behind" that everyone claims the refs missed, wasn't that bad of a hit. As a matter of fact, it was probably better that he was facing the bench so he could bend over the boards. If he had his back to the bench, he would have been bent over backwards and that could have been dangerous. The hit from behind that was called was a legitimate call and it deserved a five-minute penalty. It was a completel bonehead play.

On another topic, as a 50-year veteran of playing goal, I can sympathize with Brodeur. Even when he made the best move possible, it just wasn't working. Those nights are very frustrating.
