Lewis: Feeling great after winning 2nd Cup

Saturday, 06.14.2014 / 2:17 AM / Player's Blog with the Kings' Trevor Lewis

Trevor Lewis - Special to NHL.com

Los Angeles Kings forward Trevor Lewis blogged for NHL.com throughout the Stanley Cup Final, offering his insight on what was happening inside the walls of his team's locker room and within the confines of the rink.

LOS ANGELES -- This is such a great feeling right now. It is just awesome.

This game was another crazy battle out there. The Rangers played really good. They kept it tight on us. We had our chances and we finally got one to go there in double overtime.

Henrik Lundqvist was great for them, and he's such a great goalie, but our guy, Jonathan Quick, is great too. He was unbelievable for us tonight.

Saturday, 06.14.2014 / 2:03 AM / Kings vs Rangers - 2014 Stanley Cup Final

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com Staff Writer

Los Angeles Kings defenseman Willie Mitchell sported a wide grin before offering two words when asked earlier this week what separates coach Darryl Sutter from other coaches.

"Intense dude," he said, shaking his head for emphasis.

"He wants everyone to get the proper focus; that's the biggest thing," Mitchell added. "You're always prepared. He's a master motivator, knows when to push the buttons and how to push the buttons. Sometimes you don't like it, but look at his track record … it works."

Cup-winner was longest game in Kings history

Saturday, 06.14.2014 / 1:32 AM / Kings vs Rangers - 2014 Stanley Cup Final

NHL.com

The longest game in Los Angeles Kings history produced the sweetest reward.

Alec Martinez's goal 14:43 into the second overtime Friday gave the Kings a 3-2 victory against the New York Rangers in Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Final, wrapping up their second championship in three seasons. It also ended the longest game in franchise history.

The Kings' previous longest game came last spring, when they were eliminated by the Chicago Blackhawks in Game 5 of the Western Conference Final on a goal by Patrick Kane at 11:40 of the second overtime.

Fantastic finish for Kings' tandem of Toffoli, Pearson

Saturday, 06.14.2014 / 12:50 AM / Kings vs Rangers - 2014 Stanley Cup Final

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com Staff Writer

There was a time not too long ago when Los Angeles Kings forwards Tyler Toffoli and Tanner Pearson snarled at one another as opponents in the Ontario Hockey League.

On Friday night, the two rookies got the chance to raise the Stanley Cup on the ice at Staples Center in Los Angeles.

The Kings defeated the New York Rangers 3-2 in double overtime in Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Final to win the best-of-7 series. Toffoli got the primary assist on Alec Martinez's Cup-winning goal.

It was a run through the Stanley Cup Playoffs the rookie tandem will never forget.

"If someone told me this was the way my career would go, I would have taken it in a heartbeat," Pearson said prior to Game 4 of the Cup Final.

Kings' trip to the Stanley Cup wasn't a smooth one

Saturday, 06.14.2014 / 12:30 AM / Kings vs Rangers - 2014 Stanley Cup Final

Jon Lane - NHL.com Staff Writer

The Los Angeles Kings' journey to winning the Stanley Cup for the second time in three seasons was anything but scenic. In fact, their run was all but over at the beginning when they trailed the San Jose Sharks 3-0 in the Western Conference First Round.

It was during those dire predicaments, however, where the Kings are the most dangerous. Los Angeles rallied to beat the Sharks, becoming the fourth team in NHL history to win a best-of-7 series after trailing 3-0.

The heavy lifting didn't end with their first-round escape. The next two series each went the seven-game distance, against the Anaheim Ducks and Chicago Blackhawks. The Kings became the first team in League history to play all 21 possible games in the first three rounds and advance to the Cup Final, and also the first to win three Game 7s on the road in one postseason.

Wheat Kings' Quenneville, Hawryluk surge up ranks

Friday, 06.13.2014 / 11:59 PM / 2014 NHL Draft - Philadelphia - June 27-28, 2014

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com Staff Writer

Forwards John Quenneville and Jayce Hawryluk have gained accolades playing different styles, but there's no denying the chemistry exhibited as linemates in the turnaround of the Brandon Wheat Kings in 2013-14.

Each player no doubt bolstered his draft stock during the second half of the season and is a prime candidate to be selected in the early rounds of the 2014 NHL Draft at Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia on June 27-28.

"Prior to the home stretch, both players had missed time due to injury and it was impressive to NHL scouts how both of them elevated their game throughout the playoffs to lead their team," NHL Director of Central Scouting Dan Marr told NHL.com. "It bodes quite well for Brandon's future to have two high-character players that can lead them both on the ice and on the score sheet."

Quenneville, second cousin to Chicago Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville, is No. 23 on NHL Central Scouting's final list of the top North American skaters eligible for the draft. Hawryluk is No. 37.

Brodeur says Canadiens 'not on my radar': report

Friday, 06.13.2014 / 7:43 PM / News

NHL.com

Goaltender Martin Brodeur said Thursday he is not likely to sign with his hometown Montreal Canadiens when he becomes a free agent this summer, according to Northjersey.com.

"It depends on the situation of the team," Brodeur told Tom Gulitti of The Record. "Montreal would be tough. For me, I'm so used to being in the states and playing in the type of markets I'm used to playing in. But, again, I don't know. That's something that when we come to that bridge, we'll go over it. But it's something that, put it this way, they're not too much on my radar."

Timonen signs one-year contract with Flyers

Friday, 06.13.2014 / 6:27 PM / News

NHL.com

Defenseman Kimmo Timonen will return to the Philadelphia Flyers for another season, signing a one-year contract Friday. Financial terms were not released, though ESPN.com reports it has a base salary of $2 million with incentives that can push its value to $4 million.

The 39-year-old would have become an unrestricted free agent July 1 and was considering retirement.

"I talked to a lot of people around my age who retired and who kind of hung up their skates before they should have," Timonen said Friday. "I would say if I talked to 15 people, 13 of those people said don’t quit if you’re not hurt or something doesn’t force you to do it. Because you’re going to regret that forever. So that was kind of cool to talk to so many people that were saying the same thing: If there’s a team that wants you back and you can play, don’t retire."
