Kings Road: Defending the Stanley Cup

The Kings are busy defending their 2012 Stanley Cup title. Times photographer Robert Gauthier has covered the Kings for several years and describes the atmosphere:

“Hockey isn’t the most popular sport in America.  But to those who follow it, it’s like a religion. The energy at Staples Center is always at a high level whenever the Kings are playing. Despite our limited points of view (we either shoot through a small hole in the glass, or halfway up in the seats), the action is nonstop, and our goal is not only to always tell the story with our photos but to capture the intensity, grace and brutality of these men pursuing their life’s goal of winning the Stanley Cup.”

Kings go for broke and beat Blackhawks, 3-1

Slava Voynov’s goal makes the difference in victory that cuts Chicago’s series lead to 2-1. Home winning streak reaches nine in playoffs. READ STORY
