Devils vs. Kings: Live Blog, Highlights and Analysis of Stanley Cup Final Game 6

Ryan DavenportContributor IJune 11, 2012

For the third game in a row, the Los Angeles Kings had an opportunity to capture the franchise's first Stanley Cup, and all they needed to do was beat the New Jersey Devils on home ice.

During the opening three contests of the 2012 Stanley Cup Final, the Kings made things look easy as they took a 3-0 series lead on the Devils.

Tonight's Game 6 was by far the most lopsided contest of what was otherwise a very competitive Final, as the Kings jumped out to an early lead and never looked back.  

Though play was tense and tight early, Steve Bernier's was ejected midway through the first period, providing the Kings with a lengthy power play.

With the man advantage, Dustin Brown cashed in for his first goal of the series, and set up Jeff Carter for the Kings' second goal in less than two minutes.  A couple of minutes later, Trevor Lewis beat Martin Brodeur, staking L.A. to a three goal lead with just under five minutes to go. 

During the second, the Kings and Devils traded goals, and in the third the Kings pulled away with a pair of late tallies to put the game out of reach.  

Now that the champion has been crowned (no pun intended), stay tuned for post game analysis and reaction.
