The official Stanley Cup celebration thread

Thanks to the efforts of the players, coaches and staff of the Los Angeles Kings, the Stanley Cup has been returned to the City of Angels.

I’m very, very proud to share these moments and all moments all season long with you.

This is your overnight Let’s Party thread. Enjoy, celebrate, be safe, and respect every one. This is a high, high point for this team and its fans.

I’ll return tomorrow morning with so much material gathered tonight from ice level. Parade coverage will continue on Monday, and I’ll start posting The Quotable Darryl Sutter on Tuesday. It will be staggered over three tiers this year, starting with Quotes 30-20.

And as we depart, here are a handful of photographs that James took on the ice after the game.

Thank you again for reading, the nice words, the suggestions, the critiques, and for having formed (long before I got here) such a wonderful community. Thank you for this conversation. There is so much more to come this summer.

-Jon Rosen and James Nicholson
