A timely record of an extraordinary winning season
Experience again the Los Angeles Kings’ amazing journey to the Stanley Cup Final: an unprecedented 2012 postseason run that culminated in the first Stanley Cup trophy in the franchise’s 44-year history. As the eighth seed in the Western Conference, the Kings delivered the surprise championship in dominating fashion, storming past Vancouver, St. Louis, and Phoenix to set up a final matchup against future Hall of Famer Martin Brodeur and the New Jersey Devils. Led by one astonishing performance after another by goaltender Jonathan Quick and timely scoring from Anze Kopitar and Dustin Brown, coach Darryl Sutter’s team dropped just two games to their higher-ranked opponents in the play-offs before ousting the Devils in six games. From the off-season trade for Mike Richards to the late-season acquisition of Jeff Carter through the final seconds against New Jersey, this commemorative book also includes in-depth profiles of Quick, Kopitar, Brown, Sutter, Richards, Drew Doughty, and Dustin Penner.
