Anyone who knows ANYTHING about NHL hockey knows that the Kings have had a solid D&G for several years and the buzz has always been that they could not score enough to keep up with OR pass the bigger NAME teams that get more respect... Well... The Kings have started to score also... so as long as they can continue to score they will NOW be on that list of big NAME teams... and currently they sit ATOP that list as SCChamps.
A penality did NOT decide this Championship... the Championship was won when the Kings found the ability to score and score as often as the needed to to win that Championship.
Have you forgotten that the Kings were 15-4 going into that last game... They didn't win all those games by waiting for a Powerplay... which was really not all that good anyway in these playoffs... I've seen much better from other teams in the past.
Or maybe you are referring to the McSorely illegal stick incident back in the 93 finals...???
If NJ had concetrated on trying to score and not on breaking someones face on the glass... maybe they could have forced a game 7... and still lost to a Kings team that went 10-1 on the road (and not 10-1 on gift calls on the road).
Other teams have killed off a 5 minute major in the past... If NJ was deserving of this championship then they could have killed it off and settled down to try and win that game 6.
Brodeur had an awful game 6... and that was a major factor in the NJ loss in the finals.
The Kings simply freight trained NJ on the scoreboard and in the game after that NJ player decided to frieght train that Kings players face into the glass.
Personally I'm still waiting for the suspension from the league. If he had done that to one of my team mates... I'd of had him eat the butt end of my stick.
I just read my post and saw that I used the same wording to start my post as did Lipps... Ha,ha,ha. Just a coincidence Lipps... I swear.
