The Los Angeles Kings’ unprecedented 2012 postseason run culminated in the first Stanley Cup in the franchise’s 44-year history. And the No. 8 playoff seed delivered the surprise championship in dominating fashion, storming past Vancouver, St. Louis, and Phoenix to set up a Stanley Cup Final matchup against future Hall of Famer Martin Brodeur and the New Jersey Devils.
Led by one astonishing performance after another by goaltender Jonathan Quick and timely scoring from Anze Kopitar and Dustin Brown, coach Darryl Sutter’s team dropped just two games to their higher-ranked opponents in the Western Conference playoffs before beating the Devils in six games.
Packed with unique analysis and stunning action photography, Crowning Glory: The Los Angeles Kings’ Incredible Run to the 2012 Stanley Cup takes fans through the Kings’ amazing journey, from the offseason trade for Mike Richards to the late-season acquisition of Jeff Carter through the final seconds against New Jersey. This commemorative edition also includes profiles of Quick, Sutter, Brown, Kopitar, Richards, Drew Doughty, and Dustin Penner.
