The Los Angeles Kings have won the Stanley Cup for the first time in their history after they destroyed the New Jersey Devils 6-1 to seal the series 4-2.

The Devils had threatened an upset in the best-of-seven final as they fought back from the brink of defeat by winning two games in succession.

However the Kings meant business in game six, with Jeff Carter and Trevor Lewis scoring two goals each.

Captain Dustin Brown scored the first goal 11 minutes into the first period and Matt Greene finished the Kings’ scoring in the final period.

Adam Henrique scored New Jersey's solitary reply in the second period, by which point the Kings had already opened up a 4-0 lead.

Kings’ captain Brown said: "This is something everyone's dreamed of for their whole lives and this city's dreamed of for 45 years.

"I can't really explain it. We had an opportunity to do something special on home ice and we did, and we're champions."
