What a Journey- The 2014 Stanley Cup Champion Los Angeles Kings

A comeback from down 3-0 to their chief rival from the north to win 4-3.

A battle with their cross-town rival.

The Kings of California.

An epic series against the defending champs who dethroned them last season.

Three Game 7s on the road.

Three consecutive trips to the Western Conference Final.

The Kings of the West.

Two series-clinching victories in overtime.

Two Stanley Cup championships in 3 seasons (and back-to-back full seasons).

The Kings of the National Hockey League.

With almost the same cast of characters, the 2014 Los Angeles Kings wrote a very different story from the 2012 Los Angeles Kings, but they will both be chiseled in silver from now until the end of time.

The Los Angeles Kings, a laughingstock around the National Hockey League for decades, is now the most successful franchise in the league since the lost season.

I have never been more proud to be a fan of this team. And the future remains bright in Hockeywood.
