2014 STANLEY CUP CHAMPIONSHIP WRAP-UP: Part 2 of Frozen Royalty’s wrap-up of the Los Angeles Kings winning the 2014 Stanley Cup Championship, and the ensuing celebration.
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.
