    Kings' run to the Stanley Cup could be the best L.A. has ever seen

    Kings' Matt Greene proves to be a killer against Rangers
    Defenseman Matt Greene really is the face of the Kings' penalty-killing unit. Not the face, in terms of its No. 1 asset. That would be Kings defenseman Drew Doughty. But Greene's bloodied face could be considered the poster for the Kings' penalty...

    Kings will be at Staples Center, but where will the Stanley Cup be?
    It's hard to find a more superstitious group than hockey players. Scraggly playoff beards. Bizarre on-ice rituals. Refusal to touch any trophy other than the actual Stanley Cup, making the conference trophies among the most lonely in sports. So it's...
  • Kings edge Rangers, 3-2 in double OT, to win second Stanley Cup title

    Kings edge Rangers, 3-2 in double OT, to win second Stanley Cup title
    It took the Kings 45 years to win their first Stanley Cup. Then how come it felt like 45 years to win No. 2? Maybe this was simply cosmic and blood pressure-soaring payback for their Cup run of 2012 being far too smooth and so relatively unruffled....
