Kings' Second Stanley Cup In Three Years Sends Hockey Craze In L.A. To Fever Pitch
Published June 16, 2014
CHECK, MATE: In N.Y., Andrew Knoll noted the Kings have "most of their top players under contract," which could "open a window of opportunity to add more banners to the rafters of Staples Center, which were once adorned exclusively with mementos of the Lakers’ championships" (N.Y. TIMES, 6/14). But in Boston, Amalie Benjamin wrote the Kings still have a "long way and some stiff competition before they can start talking about a dynasty" (BOSTON GLOBE, 6/14). YAHOO SPORTS' Nicholas Cotsonika wrote the Kings were a "beast of a team -- deep, well-balanced, determined." Robitaille said, "I don’t care what sport you like or you love. Just look at what these guys have done. I’ve never seen anything like it. I don’t know if I’ll ever see it again. It’s amazing.” Cotsonika wrote it is a "testament to the parity in the NHL, especially in the West, that the Kings lost 10 games and still won the Cup" (SPORTS.YAHOO.com, 6/14).
