Stanley Cup Final: Jonathan Quick Wins Conn Smythe Trophy As Playoff MVP

The Los Angeles Kings completed their magical run through the playoffs on Monday night with a 6-1 victory over the New Jersey Devils at Staples Center, to win the Stanley Cup Final, four games to two. It is the first championship in the 45-year history of the Kings. The Conn Smythe Trophy, awarded to the MVP of the playoffs, went to Kings goalie Jonathan Quick.

Quick was one of the very best goaltenders in the regular season, with a league-high 10 shutouts, a 1.95 goals against average, and a .929 save percentage. But in the postseason he was even better, with three shutouts and a .946 save percentage. He saved 17 of 18 shots in Game 6, and was 16-4 during the postseason. Here is Quick celebrating as the third period ended, hugging teammates Colin Fraser and Drew Doughty:

After receiving the Stanley Cup, Quick was adorned with chants of "M-V-P" from the Staples Center crowd.
