Leicester cruised to a 3-1 win over Everton at a buoyant King Power Stadium on Saturday Night Football. It was the perfect way to celebrate their extraordinary Premier League title triumph, writes Nick Wright… After Leicesters wild celebrations on Monday night, it was easy to imagine they might take their feet off the gas for the visit of Everton. But on a joyous and historic day in the East Midlands, the newly crowned Premier League champions produced an exhilarating performance to match the carnival atmosphere in the stands.The party had been in full swing for days as the gravity of Leicesters extraordinary achievement began to sink in around the city, and the streets surrounding the King Power Stadium were a sea of celebration in the build-up to kick-off against Everton. Wes Morgan and Claudio Ranieri lift the trophy amid ecstatic scenes at the King Power stadium A rousing performance from opera singer Andrea Bocelli and an emotional speech from manager Claudio Ranieri brought a touch of class to the occasion, and then it was over to Leicesters unlikely band of heroes to continue the party on the pitch.They certainly seemed to enjoy themselves, with Riyad Mahrez and Jamie Vardy at the heart of their thrilling attacking play, just as they have been for so much of this remarkable season. The stadium was a cauldron of noise from kick-off, and there was more reason to celebrate when they broke the deadlock six minutes in. Vardy stars in title party Jamie Vardy scored twice as Leicester celebrated winning the Premier League in fine style. Mahrezs throw-in found Andy King on Leicesters right-hand side, and the midfielder chipped a perfectly weighted pass into the path of Jamie Vardy. The striker exploited the space between John Stones and Bryan Oviedo, and his first-time finish was typically clinical. After missing the last two games through suspension, the FWA Footballer of the Year was making up for lost time.Former Leicester striker Alan Smith would later describe it as the ultimate team performance in the Sky Sports commentary box, and their second goal came less than 30 minutes after their first. Shinji Okazaki found Mahrez, whose trickery bewitched his markers before Leighton Baines tackle inadvertently set up King to dispatch the finish. Ranieri reflects on Leicesters amazing season and says he wants the fans to keep dreaming Its like watching a team on fast forward, noted Jamie Carragher, and there was much more to come as they continued to pour forward after the break. Vardy got his second when he won and converted a penalty in the 65th minute, and the only minor hiccup came when he missed another chance from the spot to wrap up his hat-trick.Vardys double still puts him within one goal of Premier League top scorer Harry Kane on 24, and it was fitting, too, that King played such a pivotal role in the result. The long-serving Welshman is the only surviving member of the side that won promotion from League One in 2008/09, and seven years on from starting in a 3-0 win over Crewe Alexandra, he starred as they brought up 80 points in the Premier League.The 27-year-old is a symbol of Leicesters extraordinary rise, and his goal and assist earned him a well-deserved man-of-the-match award. Andy King was the most important player in the first half, said Jamie Redknapp in the Sky Sports studio. He just sums them up. Morgan admits he felt drained and emoptional after lifting the Premier League trophy Leicesters success, though, is a triumph of the team over the individual, and the philosophy was typified by the all-encompassing celebrations that greeted the final whistle. They have been as one all season, said Redknapp. From Schmeichel to Vardy, every single player has been immense. Its the stuff of dreams.In many ways, this was the typical Leicester performance. The Foxes had less possession (41.6 per cent to Evertons 58.4 per cent) and attempted fewer passes (337 to Evertons 499) than their opponent, and yet they dominated the metrics that mattered. Saturdays Opta stats We round up the best stats and facts from Saturdays Premier League games. Ranieris men have ripped up the rule book this season, and against Everton they mustered a season-high 33 shots on goal over the course of the 90 minutes. Roberto Martinezs side were left dazed and confused, and in truth, they were flattered by the 3-1 scoreline.Carragher described it as the perfect finale, and it certainly felt like a fitting way to celebrate the greatest day in their 132-year history. Teams like Leicester are not meant to have these moments, said Carragher. This is what makes it fantastic. This now gives hope to every player and team out there up and down the league.

Williams thinks the Kings all drew their inspiration from that Stanley Cup championship banner hanging over the Staples Center ice, and it carried them through to the Western Conference finals. "It comes from the hunger of winning one and having that drive for another one," Williams said. "You dont want anyone else to raise the Cup but you." Williams scored two goals in the second period, and the Kings advanced with a 2-1 victory over San Jose on Tuesday night. Jonathan Quick made 25 saves as the defending champs finished off this agonizingly even series with their 14th consecutive home victory over the past two months, including seven straight in the post-season. Not much separated the teams in this thrilling all-California series, but the Kings cited last seasons trophy for their poise and persistence in another nail-biting clincher. "I certainly enjoy pressure situations," said Williams, whose goals were 2:57 apart. "I know everyone in this dressing room does. We pride ourselves on being a team that, push comes to shove, were going to get it done. Weve been through it before, and we know we can do it." Williams scored on a power-play tap-in and a one-timer, putting the Kings on top to stay. The veteran wing came in with an eight-game, goal-scoring drought, but the two-time Stanley Cup winner has scored nine points in his four career appearances in a Game 7. The Kings will face Chicago or Detroit when they attempt to reach the Stanley Cup finals for the third time. The Blackhawks will host the Red Wings in Game 7 on Wednesday night. The home team won all seven games in the series, as did the team that scored first. The fifth-seeded Kings barely rode their home-ice advantage to victory in their first potential elimination game in the last two years. "They were as good as us," Los Angeles coach Darryl Sutter said. "We just scored." Quick and his teammates barely held off the Sharks in a frantic third period. Quick showed off his Conn Smythe Trophy form yet again, finishing the seven-game series by allowing just 10 goals. "Were going to play every game like this, no matter what," Quick said. "It doesnt matter how many games it takes, especially against that team. Were fortunate to move forward." Antti Niemi stopped 16 shots, and Dan Boyle scored early in the third period for the Sharks, who fell just short of their third trip to the conference finals in four years. Even during a year of roster turnover and change, sixth-seeded San Jose remained a serious contender in its ninth straight playoff appearance. "We thought we could come in here and steal a game," Sharks captain Joe Thornton said. "We played our hearts out, and thats all you can ask of each other. We had to lay it on the line in the third, and I thought we did. Jonathan Quick is just a fantastic goalie. ... We were just having so much fun. Its disappointing that it has to end, because we were really enjoying this. Its a tough way to finish." Los Angeles has won eight straight home playoff games, dating to last seasons Stanley Cup clincher, but this one might have been the toughest. San Jose pressed the action throughout the third period after Williams back-to-back goals put the Sharks in a mid-game hole, but Quick and the Kings defence hung on for a win in Los Angeles first Game 7 at home since 1989. "The way they banded together and the way they played for each other was exceptional," San Jose coach Todd McLellan said. "Its a great sign for our organization.ddddddddddddI think we have something to build on moving forward." After a scoreless first period in Game 7, featuring plenty of near-miss chances but just eight combined shots, the Sharks again came out solidly in the second. San Jose held the Kings without a shot for nearly 19 consecutive minutes. But the Kings finally broke through after San Joses Brent Burns took an interference penalty near Los Angeles net. Williams got the puck to the post and hacked at it until it slid behind Niemi for his first goal since Game 4 of the first round. Williams has been candid about his lines offensive struggles during this post-season, saying the Kings top scorers had to get better for Los Angeles to advance. He did it again 2:57 later, taking a cross-ice pass from Anze Kopitar and beating Niemi from short range with a one-timer. Williams had just two assists in the Kings previous eight playoff games. Niemi kept the Sharks in it with two stunning saves, preventing a natural hat trick by Williams several minutes before stopping Brad Richardsons one-timer. But Quick matched every save, and the Kings preserved their two-goal lead into the third. Niemi made another enormous save during 4-on-4 play early in the third, stopping Jeff Carter on a breakaway. Boyle ended Quicks bid for his third shutout of the series with a long shot through traffic with 14:34 to play, giving the defenceman his third goal of the post-season. Quick kept making astonishing saves until the final seconds, robbing Joe Pavelski on an open chance with his glove extended along the ice with 5:04 to play. "We probably made one more mistake than they did, and we couldnt find a way to get another puck by Quick," McLellan said. "We would love to go back and play Game 2 over again, the last four or five minutes. Thats probably one that we needed and didnt get." This series was even from the start, with neither team able to take more than momentary control. The clubs were similarly equal in the regular season, when the Kings 3-2 home victory over San Jose in the finale pushed fifth-seeded Los Angeles ahead of the Sharks. That eventually led to the Kings starting a playoff series at home for the first time since 1992, but the uncanny home-ice advantage held: The home team has won 16 of these Pacific Division rivals 17 meetings in the past two seasons. Los Angeles opened the series with two home victories, stealing Game 2 with a pair of power-play goals in the final minutes for the only major comeback of the series. The Sharks responded with two solid 2-1 victories at home, keeping the Kings offence punchless away from Staples Center. Quick posted his second shutout of the series in Game 5, but San Jose forced a seventh game with another 2-1 victory at the Shark Tank last Sunday. NOTES: San Jose kept its lineup from Game 6, while Los Angeles replaced fourth-liner Jordan Nolan with rookie Tyler Toffoli. Hobbling Sharks F Marty Havlat missed the final four games of the series and six of seven overall, playing only 4:52 in Game 3. ... Kings C Jarret Stoll missed his sixth straight game with an apparent concussion after an illegal hit in Game 1 by Sharks F Raffi Torres, who was suspended for the rest of the series. Stoll is Los Angeles third-line centre and a key contributor on penalty-killing and faceoffs. ... The Kings hadnt hosted a Game 7 since Wayne Gretzky had a hat trick to beat the Edmonton Oilers in 1989 at the Forum. ... David and Victoria Beckham attended the game with their children, sitting behind Tom Cruise. Beckham, who became a fervent Kings fan last season, wrapped up his soccer career just two days earlier in France, sitting out Paris Saint-Germains final match. ' ' '
