And This Day Keeps Getting Better

Just 9 hours after the school year ended, the Los Angeles Kings won the Stanley Cup Finals 3-2 in double sudden death (nail biting) overtime.  The second time the Cup has come to LA in three years.  THE SECOND TIME!!!

It was an East vs. West Coast finals this year.  The Kings were up 3-0 in the series and lost to the New York Rangers in game 4.  That sent the series back to LA for tonight's game 5.
Alex Martinez capitalized on a beautiful 3 on 2 rebound shot (@8 seconds in the video) to win the game.

As a long time Kings' fan, it's been fun for them to win the Cup after all those years of watching them almost win it (or not even make it to the playoffs).

    1. Ha ha! It's just like soccer, only on the ice with skates, sticks, and pucks, otherwise just like soccer. :)
