Oh and the other quickly stylish thing for Rags fans to say today is 'DUUUUUH, it was five games but everyone knows it was closa den dat'. fvck off. You got housed in 5 and were outshout 750-3 in 3rd periods. You got beat the fvck down by a superior team. Your little run was a fluke built on facing back-up goaltenders and Boston losing. Know your role and shut your hole.

I couldn't be prouder of my team. They showed tremendous heart and gave the Kings all they wanted. Outside of Game 3, every game was decided by a goal with all three in LA needing sudden death. The difference was the Kings' size and talent. They got stronger every third period and were dominant. However, two of those overtimes easily could've gone to the Rangers. Quick got a post and a big stop on Kreider in Game 2, which ultimately was the game that cost them any realistic chance. It's one they should've won regardless of the controversial non-call on King. The Kings benefited from a couple of calls including a horrible one on Zuccarello. But that's what great teams do. Take advantage. They probably would've tied it anyway due to Vigneault's coaching mishaps. The third periods were a travesty. He got outcoached by Sutter, who did a great job mixing his lines and adjusting.

 

There's no shame in losing to the best team who all postseason fought back and showed the kind of resiliency befitting of a champion. I can't recall a team like this one. From their historic comeback against the Sharks to the rally from 3-2 down against the Ducks to the way they battled back in an epic Game 7 at Chicago, these Kings are Stanley Cup Kings. They had to dig deep to pull it off and beat the best goalie in the sport. Even people here have to admit that. Henrik never has to answer another question. He took a flawed team as far as they could go without the benefit of a top line center or scorer (Nash?)  and only one legit All-Star defenseman. In the past, I critiqued Lundqvist as much as anyone. Not anymore. He's a King in my book. From the way he plays to the way he handles questions. A class act.

 

I don't feel bad. This isn't 2012. I took that loss much harder. This was an awesome ride. I never thought we'd ever experience a Conference Final clincher reaching the Cup full of memories I'll have forever. I never pictured going to a Stanley Cup game even though it happened to be the Game 3 snooze fest. It was still great. Today, I have more of an appreciation and reflect more positively moving forward. When you say the Rangers can't, I say they can. It'll be awfully hard to get back. With the right moves, I believe they will.

That would make a lot more sense if Nash was on the Leafs and Clarkson on the Rangers, the Leafs don't exactly need another charmin talented player and the Rangers already have good third-fourth liners that aren't getting paid a king's ransom.

“This series was probably — I don’t want to say the easiest, but the least physical, demanding without a doubt. All the other series were more physical, they were tougher on the body. It was still a good series, but the other ones were tougher,” said Doughty.

This is impulse. He had to say something, just in case anyone got the crazy idea that this was #1 vs. #2 playing for the title. i.e. He is saying that the Sharks, Ducks, and Blackhawks are all better than the Rangers and that the West is better than the East.  This is like when Richard Sherman said that the Broncos were not the 2nd best team after the Seahawks' SB victory and that the 49ers were instead.

The best thing about that quote is that it should piss off Rag fans and get them all butthurt, since they run to tell anyone who will listen to them how 'close' a series it was and how LA wasn't THAT much better. Lmfao.

I've just heard this little tid-bit of info.  Drew Doughty joins a legendary list players who have won at least 2 Gold Medals and 2 Stanley Cups.  The 8th player to do so.  Others on that list, Marty Brodeur, Scott Niedermayer, John Toews, Duncan Keith, Peter Forsberg, Slava Fetisov and Igor Larianov.  Quite nice company if I do say so myself.

Not really. What he said was true. They're not a big physical team and don't boast the firepower the Kings faced in the other 3 rounds. But to say the series wasn't close doesn't make much sense.

When the Sharks faced the Kings, a lot of people knew these could be two of the top 3 teams in the league facing each other. There were two potential WCF in the 1st round. Maybe some Rangers fans get insulted but the West is a lot better than the East, and the Kings went through the gauntlet to get to the Finals. The Rangers were a pleasant surprise for them. Don't think what Doughty is saying is insulting at all.

 

I think 3 teams and fanbases should all be left shaking their head saying what if: The Sharks, The Bruins and The Blackhawks.

Yea this. This wasn't a shot at the Rangers, Doughty was speaking off the cuff and giving the Kings' opponents in the West their due. I thought it was the honorable thing to do. Especially as a Niners fan I can relate. It was a nice gesture when after the SB, Sherman gave us props. In a way it was honor amongst enemies. It wasn't a shot at the Broncos, it was just kind of...well...the truth, just as in this case.

Woah now, Marty ain't no 'former Devil' just yet. :P
