The Los Angeles Kings won the Stanley Cup last night for the first time in their 45 year history.And while the New Jersey Devils made the series interesting with back-to-back wins, game six was never in doubt.

But even though the game was a blowout, there were still plenty of interesting and entertaining sights throughout the game.

On the next few pages we will take a closer look at the scene both on and off the ice.

One of the coolest shots in sports is looking down on a face-off

With the game tied 0-0, Steve Bernier delivered a brutal hit and got a five-minute major

The player he roughed up, Rob Scuderi, was a bloodied mess and Bernier was ejected

Even the ice itself was bloodied by the hit

90 seconds later, the Kings struck again

And Devil coach Peter DeBoer may have known it was going to be a long night

And then, with the Devils still a man short, the Kings added a third goal and the onslaught was on

Don't look behind you DeBoer. Don't do it!

Less than two minutes into the second period, the Kings erased any hope of a Devil comeback by making it 4-0

One official had a rough night, going down hard in the second period

Like Scuderi, he was cut badly, but tried to stay in the game

Only to get another stick to the face later on and be forced to leave the game

The stars came out in L.A.

The biggest star in the house wasn't on the ice as David Beckham cheered the Kings


Jersey native James Gandolfini couldn't have been too happy with how the night went

Hey Al Michaels, nice flip phone!

With the Kings up big, the Stanley Cup arrived at the arena in a minivan

Here was the sign of the night

But there was still a little more work to do, including this empty-netter to make it 5-1

And finally, the Kings are the champs

And all the Devils could do was watch

One of the great traditions in sports is the post-series handshake line

And the goalies embraced

All that was left was the presentation of the most famous trophy in sports

And captain Dustin Brown gave it a kiss

And passed it off to his teammates
