The Los Angeles Kings had a challenging road to the Stanley Cup Final, if not the most challenging Stanley Cup Final. Three straight seven-game series, each with their own special brands of adversity.
Against the Anaheim Ducks, it was the emergence of rookie goalie John Gibson.
He won his first two games, including a shutout in his postseason debut. Suddenly talk of him being the next Cam Ward – or Ken Dryden, depending on your level of hyperbole – began.
But like everything else during their run to the Cup, the LA Kings overcame this challenge, as chronicled in this clip from the official Kings 2014 Stanley Cup Champions video, which will be available on Blu-ray ($29.93 SRP), DVD ($24.99 SRP) and Digital ($9.99 SRP for SD/$12.99 SRP for HD) beginning on July 29.
Thanks to Cinedigm and NHL Studios for the clip:
You know, for a minute there, we thought the kid was going to pull it off.
