Kings still celebrating their ‘Fourth’

A happy and safe 4th of July to all my American friends out there. Do you think, when he donated a championship cup in 1892, Lord Stanley of Preston one day thought that a representative from a team in Los Angeles would be taking it to Russia? The Stanley Cup — albeit not the original bowl — is in Russia for more celebrations. Today, at a hockey academy, the scoreboard was changed to reflect the Kings’ victory over the New Jersey Devils.

[Also, many sources are reporting that Zach Parise and Ryan Suter have signed with Minnesota. The Kings made an offer to Parise but didn't believe they were strong contenders in the end. Parise's deal is reportedly a 13-year contract worth an average of approximately $7.53 million.]
