Affiliate news – St. John’s IceCaps:

Caps official site:  Thank you, fans.  (video).  IceCaps players thank the fans for giving them so much support in their inaugural season.

Stanley Cup news:

Star-Ledger:  Devils believe Stanley Cup finals are far from over.   These Devils have certainly not taken the easy route to get to the Finals and they have not made it any easier heading to L.A. down 2 gamesIf any teams has shown they can persevere it is New Jersey, but they will need more than a split to give themselves a fighting chance to win the Cup.

Star-Ledger:  Are Devils at a disadvantage against much-traveled KingsWe are about to find out if that was a pro or con.

L.A. Times:  Kings hope to share something more than office space with LakersThere is still no question as to which Los Angeles based team captures the hearts and minds of most people in California, however if there is something most people in Tinseltown love, it is a winner.  The Kings can go a long way towards gaining some much needed attention with 2 more wins.

L.A. Times:  Kings suddenly are in the buzz bizAs I said above, this team has still not been widely embraced.  However they can cement themselves a lot of news fans if they pull off this series victory.  Would also be nice to reward the diehards who have been waiting since 1967 for a trophy.

L.A Times:  For Kings fans, what makes sense is the sense of placeI always credited myself for driving 1.5 hours to see Red Wings games, but that pales in comparison to an 8 hour treck to get to the Staples Center.

Winnipeg Free Press:  Former hot-head now hot propertyThe Manitoba product is showing he can keep his cool as his management decisions have helped guide this team into contender status.
