The Kings defeated the New Jersey Devils in Game 6 by a final score of 6-1 to claim the series 4-2. The Kings entered the playoffs as the No. 8 seed and went through the top three seeds in the Western Conference before beating the sixth-seeded Devils in the championship series.

According to oddsmakers, the Kings were given 18/1 odds to win the Stanley Cup as the playoffs got started. This means that a wager of $100 on the Kings will pay out an additional $1,800.

The most impressive part about the Kings’ run was that they were 10-1 on the road. Their lone loss on the road came in Game 5 of the Stanley Cup final. The Kings’ goalie, Jonathan Quick, won the Conn Smythe Trophy for being the playoff MVP. He had 1/1 odds to win the trophy at the start of the series.
