Open Thread: Share Your Memories of the Kings' First Stanley Cup, One Year Ago Today

Jeff Gross

We may not be in the Finals this season, but who says we can't remember last season? Tell us where you were and what you did on June 11, 2012.

The 2013 Stanley Cup Finals start tomorrow. The Bruins and the Blackhawks will be playing for a championship, a 35-pound trophy, and eternal glory. Though both teams have won a Cup in the last three years, no fan of the winning team will ever forget the night when they watch their captain and his teammates lift the Stanley Cup.

Speaking of which...

Do you remember what happened exactly one year ago today? On June 11, 2012?

Of course you do.

A ton of you were with us on the game thread that night. Many more were watching on TV, and some of you were probably even at the Staples Center (you lucky dogs).

So let's take a look back on the 1st anniversary of that historic night. Share some memories of where you were and what you remember most in the comments. Stories, videos, quotes, and pictures are all welcome.

GKG.
