A quick synopsis of the final Game 6
Face meets glass, blood spilled, 5 minute major.
This penalty led to THREE goals for the Kings.
Dustin Brown is a phenomenal captain: scoring goals, getting assists, blocking shots, and being a very strong physical presence.
Attacking the goalie: game misconduct.
Irate Devils coach.
Peter DeBoer was really letting the refs get to him.

It’s funny to watch her having such a good time behind DeBoer who is screaming his lungs out.
Final game of the playoffs and NJ gets plowed.
It ended 6-1. There were four goals, then an empty net goal, followed by another goal on Martin Brodeur. Ouch.
Los Angeles Kings get their first Stanley Cup.
UPDATE: Jonathan Quick did it too.
ANOTHER UPDATE: Henrik Lundqvist did it too on stage receiving the Vezina trophy at the NHL Awards.
Simon Gagne carries the cup for the first time and almost eats it.
I don’t think I could have more respect for Dustin Brown. He is such a physical presence, but never seems to lose his cool. He opened the floodgates when he started scoring and his team followed suit. And he swears on live television. I wish he was a Red Wing.
If you don’t think hockey can be interesting, you didn’t watch this game.
How to be more like a Stanley Cup championship team’s captain
My personal developmental take-home points:
- Don’t let minutia bother you. The end goal is the only thing that deserves your focus.
- Leading by example is a very strong leadership trait.
- Be prepared to divulge blood, sweat, and tears when everything is on the line.
