An abundance of talk-back goodness is already underway from our network pals repping the Stanley Cup Champion Kings and runner-up Devils at Jewels From The Crown, Battle Of California, and In Lou We Trust. Do check them out for the latest - and understandably last - active playoff talk of the 2011-12 NHL season. Not to worry: the Panthers' summer gets crackin' with Entry Draft and UFA Day craziness on the immediate horizon; we'll be hosting Live Threads for both events and much more, including the NHL Awards and a few other surprises.

Our congrats to Los Angeles on a title which was a long time in coming, and of course the Devils for giving us in South Florida - and beyond - an awful lot to be proud of during a fantastic postseason gift to all fans of the sport. Our collective hat is off, Pete :)
