Thanks to Patrick Kane’s hat-trick/double OT winner last night we have ourselves the first Original Six Stanley Cup Final since 1979. Unfortunately this has come at the expense of the Los Angeles Kings whom the Chicago Blackhawks ousted, ending their bid for a second consecutive Stanley Cup Championship.
Let’s take a look at what the merchandise would have looked like if the Kings came out on top of the Blackhawks in the West Final, with a sampling of their Conference and even some Stanley Cup Championship merchandise for 2013.
First up, the official locker room cap and t-shirt for the West Championship:
Now a few of the t-shirts that would have gone on sale:
And the rest, including the Stanley Cup Championship items. Stickers, flags, clocks, etc.:
What’s weird is it’s only the sticker, halfway down on the right, that makes any reference to a “Back-to-Back” Championship!
