Your PHT review of the L.A. Kings championship DVD

Aug 7, 2012, 11:01 PM EDT

Kings DVD Box Art

One of the spoils of winning the Stanley Cup is getting to relive your glory over and over courtesy of the championship DVD. Warner Home Video’s recap of the Los Angeles Kings’ incredible run from eighth seed in the Western Conference to Stanley Cup champions covers all the bases and has a couple of nice bonuses if you’re watching on Blu-Ray.

Everything from Vancouver’s mid-series switch from Roberto Luongo to Cory Schneider to the rough and tumble series with Phoenix sees all the big moments and goals captured. Even Dustin Brown‘s controversial hit on Phoenix’s Michal Rozsival in Game 5 isn’t glossed over. Somehow Shane Doan‘s words with Brown in the handshake line were missed though. Huh.

In covering the finals, the Kings’ battle with New Jersey gets all the glory with each game covered in detail. Game 4 in particular was worked over as the team explained how distracted they were at home looking to finish off a sweep.

As for the bonuses, if you’ve got the Blu-Ray you can witness all five minutes of the Kings’ major power play from Game 6 against New Jersey that helped swing the game in their favor. With NBC’s Doc Emrick, Ed Olczyk, and Pierre McGuire providing the call you can say we’re big fans of that.

You’ll also get a flashback to Dustin Penner‘s problem with pancakes as well as the charity pancake breakfast he did in the aftermath. Adding all that on top of the locker room celebration goodies, extended interviews, and other in-game features, you can’t go wrong.

    I got it right away! There were a few details left out that I would have liked to see, but it was fun and exciting to watch. Great ending too! GKG.

    Is that an “Oscar” Calling ?

    I haven’t seen it yet, but no doubt Yerdon speaks the truth when he says that “you can’t go wrong” with this latest video ! The bottom line is that we LA Kings are the undisputed “best” hockey team in the world today and it only get’s “better” from here on in ! That’s right friends, as 2012-13 will see us bring the “exact” same formation back to the field. Those who question our resolve would be well served to recall that we LA Kings didn’t “beat” everyone else, in as much as we “butchered” them ! Luongo, Burrows, Backes, Doan, Smith, Parise, Brodeur, etc .. they were “all” dealt with, the lot of them ! The kicker in all of this however, is that next year it’s going to be even more fun, as it’ll be “full speed ahead” right from the get go ! :)

    Anyway, based on my 7 x months of affiliation here at PHT, I can attest that the following are all “excellent” LA Kings fans beyond repute !

    1) Namriverrat
    2) Ron
    3) Highlander
    4) Iron Mike
    5) Socal
    6) Dadoun
    7) Blomfeld
    8) Sharkfans 66/77/88
    9) Broadstreetbullies 22/33/44

    Yes friends …. our dynasty of “multiple” championships has only just begun ! :)

      I don’t want to spoil the party, just: survive the first playoff round. That seems to be a real hurdle for defending champs after the short summer (see: CHI, BOS). Not only the fatigue, but also the complacency, especially without “new blood”…

  3. highlander24 - Aug 8, 2012 at 1:20 AM

    I hear ya! We’ve got the sequel and the entire Oscar-winning movie franchise to look forward to in the coming years, especially with the same cast out there all over again. One of those movies every year is what we want. Production of the next one starts October 12 at STAPLES Center, banner night. Hopefully this one will have a VERY similar ending. KINGS.

    • blomfeld - Aug 8, 2012 at 1:27 AM

      Yes, just like our glorious LA Kings, you seriously “rock” friend ! :)

    I want to see the preview for the Minnesota Wild Championship DVD. Due out in 2013

    • dannymac17 - Aug 8, 2012 at 4:19 PM

      i heard it got shelved due to common sense.

  5. highlander24 - Aug 8, 2012 at 2:16 AM

    You’re awesome blomfeld. And Wild fan, you guys may have added some talented players this offseason, but you have yet to stock up on Philadelphia players, thus you do not have the proper ingredients in the recipe to win Lord Stanley’s Cup, as we have done.

    • greatminnesotasportsmind - Aug 8, 2012 at 9:04 AM

      I give to you…

      Darrol Powe

      • greatminnesotasportsmind - Aug 8, 2012 at 1:05 PM

        No really, take him. Please!

  6. juzzi7 - Aug 8, 2012 at 4:39 AM

    Oh, I thought the bandwagon left already to Minnesota… I guess some guys just missed it?

    Just kidding, have fun Kings fans while it still lasts!

  7. 950003cups - Aug 8, 2012 at 7:26 AM

    I could never get myself to watch that DVD. I hated losing. But KO’n the Rangers in the ECF was pretty sweet. DAMN!! We (Devils fans) wanted that cup!

  8. 950003cups - Aug 8, 2012 at 7:32 AM

    What’s with the Wild fans? They think Parise and Suter are the equivalent of Miami getting LeBron and Wade. Although both conducted their FA as if they were, that doesn’t make it the same.

  10. chubbedjox - Aug 8, 2012 at 9:54 AM

    All these kings fans think they hav a dynasty going, haha whatta joke that is! Nobody can even name a single player on that team because theyre soo low-tier. You guys dont have a gamechanger like Soup Can or Pringles Can Geno. The Franchise is stacked full of top notch talent. That is whats needed to be a dynasty my lame friends. The Franchise is the only team that qualifies as a dynasty and everyone knows it. Now get to a relevant story on Pro Crosby Talk and lets discuss the savior of the NHL!!!

  11. daburghdabest - Aug 8, 2012 at 10:15 AM

    Whatever enjoy the only good year your “Kings” will ever have, I mean DEVILS as a finals opponent? What a joke. Envy you’ll never have as many championship DVD’s I have to watch. So take this & keep it next to your Wayne PUTZky posters & begin practicing to hate 2013-2020 champs THE PITTSBURGH PENGUINS!

    • blomfeld - Aug 8, 2012 at 6:46 PM

      PENGUIN Brassieres Now on Sale for only $9.99 !

      LA friends … normally I don’t respond to imbeciles like the ones we have here above (ie: daburghdabest, chubbedjox, happybirthdaythickloins, etc). However, just their very presence here at this excellent LA Kings story is really making me angry. As you know, while we do acknowledge that Sidney Crosby is a “talented” player, “never” will we ever take the Penguins as a team to be any kind of a serious threat ! Of course they “mean well” and they do”try” every year no doubt. But let’s be realistic. The eastern teams which we’ll need to defeat for the Cup in coming years are the Rangers, Bruins and Lightning. The Penguins “God bless them” aren’t even in the conversation … it’s as simple as that.

      Warning video for these “twisted and crude” Penguin freaks …

  12. hockeyknowledge - Aug 8, 2012 at 10:45 AM

    Remember defense wins championships.
    The penguins did not have that.

    • ron05342 - Aug 8, 2012 at 11:03 PM


      I mean, they allowed only 30 goals in 6 playoff games. Now, I ask you, what greater defensive effort in this years SC playoffs can you point too?

      • blomfeld - Aug 9, 2012 at 2:34 AM

        absolutely “beautiful” man ! … but seriously, what a joke these guys are, eh ? … between the two of them, the Penguins’ and Flyers’ goaltenders couldn’t stop a puck armed with a 4 x 8 plywood sheet ! … good times ! :)

  13. charleslouis99 - Aug 8, 2012 at 11:01 AM

    even though the soup can weirdo is trashing LA which I don’t like either
    the trolling is still annoying

  14. chubbedjox - Aug 8, 2012 at 11:11 AM

    You guys even had The “Great” One for years and culdnt even raise the cup. What losers!!
    The Franchise has The Soup-Canned One, and hes just getting started! All of our firepower will look like WW 3 when we unleash on the NHL for the next decade+.

  15. highlander24 - Aug 8, 2012 at 5:30 PM

    Oh, I forgot about Darrol Powe. I’d still rather have Richards, Carter, Williams, etc. though.

    • blomfeld - Aug 9, 2012 at 2:41 AM

      and I’d also rather have …

      Fraser … etc
