LOS ANGELES -- Noting the NHL's theme that the 2013-14 season is like no other, Commissioner Gary Bettman said Wednesday the League is nearing the completion of its best season.

"By almost any measure, this may have been the most successful season on and off the ice in League history," Commissioner Bettman said during his press conference prior to Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final between the New York Rangers and Los Angeles Kings at Staples Center.

"There has been a lot written, discussed and debated about the road we took to get to this point, where we are today, but I'm always one to look forward. Our objective was, and always is, to make a great game even greater, to give our fans the best sports experience and entertainment possible and the best opportunities to connect with our game. The 2013-14 campaign accomplished that objective."
