Former Ice coach Sutter wins Stanley Cup

The Los Angeles Kings won the Stanley Cup late Friday night (or Saturday morning in Indy) when Alec Martinez buried a rebound in the second overtime, giving the Kings a 3-2 win in the game and a 4-1 victory in the series.

What this means, of course, is that Kings coach Darryl Sutter is a two-time Stanley Cup champion, adding another name with an Indianapolis connection to the Stanley Cup.

Sutter coached the Indianapolis Ice to the 1990 IHL Turner Cup championship and has now led the Kings to the Stanley Cup in 2012 and 2014.

Coverage of the final game from the Associated Press, Los Angeles Times and New York Times, as well as the LA Times' postgame column from veteran hockey writer Helene Elliott.

Also, check out a couple of feature stories on the Kings' coach, who has famously been a man of few words publicly this postseason. One, from Newsday, looks at him matching his brothers Duane & Brent, who each won multiple Stanley Cups as players with the Islanders. Duane also coached the Ice from 1993-95. Another story, from the Toronto Star, looks at Darryl's relationship with his son, Christopher, and others who have Down Syndrome.
