LOS ANGELES — As mentioned in Part 1 of this wrap-up of the Los Angeles Kings winning the 2014 Stanley Cup Championship on June 13, followed by their official Stanley Cup parade in Downtown Los Angeles and a rally at Staples Center after that, the Kings were celebrating and expressing their gratitude to those who helped them reach hockey’s highest of heights, especially the fans. But they were also busy sending carefully crafted messages to everyone in the hockey world.

One of the loudest messages, delivered not long after the players hoisted the Stanley Cup, was that winger and captain Dustin Brown had silenced his critics once again.

During the on-ice celebration, Brown hoisted the Stanley Cup for the second time in his National Hockey League career, becoming the first United States-born captain to hoist the Cup more than once.

LOS ANGELES AND EL SEGUNDO, CA — With the Los Angeles Kings on the verge of winning their second Stanley Cup Championship in the last three seasons, perhaps as soon as tonight, much has been said about their character and leadership qualities that have been on display throughout the 2014 Stanley Cup Playoffs.

Indeed, leading the New York Rangers in the 2014 Stanley Cup Final, 3-0 in the best-of-seven series, the Kings could win the whole enchilada as soon as tonight, when the two teams face-off in Game 4 at Madison Square Garden in New York (5:00 PM PDT; televised on NBCSN in the United States and on CBC and RDS in Canada).

Character and leadership are usually not even a thought in anyone’s mind while watching their favorite hockey team, and especially here in the Los Angeles area, those characteristics were often scoffed at by pundits and fans alike, who believed that skill and talent were all that mattered.

EL SEGUNDO, CA — Year after year, game after game, body check after body check, those of us who watch the game of hockey often think about all the money National Hockey League players earn, which is certainly nothing to sneeze at.

By the same token, they also pay a high price due to injuries, and all too frequently, they are career-ending, and often debilitating after a player retires.

If you talk to NHL athletic trainers, they can all tell horror stories about how players often retire with fingers, toes and limbs that are bent in ways they aren’t meant to be, and that’s just the tip of the iceberg regarding the injuries and maladies hockey players often have to live with after retirement.
