“Every single guy worked so hard for us this season. Everyone deserves this. We got used to each other, we developed a chemistry, and we just went sailing from there.,” defenseman Drew Doughty was quoted as saying in the reports.
“We never lost our confidence. We had to take it on the chin to keep moving, losing two, and we looked at it as, ‘Hey, we still have to win one game to win a championship. And we have two chances.’ Finally, we were able to do it at home,” Jonathan Quick reportedly said.
“This is unreal. Every single emotion in me is coming out. The biggest thing has been the belief inside the locker room. We had 25 guys believing in one thing. I can’t be more proud of the guys,” Kings’ forward Anze Kopitar said.
Reports said that the Kings is the first team to win the Stanley Cup on their home ice since the Anaheim Ducks did it 5 years ago.
