Alec Martinez was so excited he didn't seem to know how to celebrate.
The Los Angeles Kings' defenseman scored the game-winning goal of the Stanley Cup final on Friday, as the Kings won the series against the New York Rangers in five games. It's the second time the Kings have hoisted Lord Stanley in the last three years.
"After it went in, I think I blacked out," Martinez said. "I'm just so happy for these guys."
Martinez also scored the game-winning goal in Game 7 of the Western Conference final against the Chicago Blackhawks.
Congrats to the Kings.

"For a few hours it was literally like, 'Oh, my God, was I awful? Why did they cut me? What are people going to think?'" she said, according to E! "I woke up the next morning and I was like, 'O.K., it makes total sense. ... I'm a pretty spiritual person, so I can just sit back and trust that everything happens for a reason, even if my ego doesn't like it."
