2012 Stanley Cup Champions

Congratulations to the Los Angeles Kings for making hockey history of their own last night. They're the first #8 playoff seed to win the Stanley Cup since the format was introduced, and it's their first Stanley Cup in the team's 45-year existence.

Of the 1967 expansion teams still remaining the only one that hasn't won a Stanley Cup is the St. Louis Blues, this past season's surprise #2 seed in the Western Conference. For their sake I hope they can translate their regular season success to post-season success next year.
