Kings to celebrate title with Los Angeles parade
LOS ANGELES (AP) — The Stanley Cup will be on parade through the streets of Los Angeles as the Kings and their fans celebrate the team’s second championship in three seasons.
The victory parade will begin at noon Monday at 5th and Figueroa streets and head a mile through downtown to Chick Hearn Court at Staples Center.
Kings players, their families, coaches, team staff, broadcasters, team mascot Bailey and the Ice Crew will ride aboard double-decker buses and other specially decorated vehicles with the Stanley Cup, Conn Smythe Trophy and Clarence Campbell Cup.
The parade, expected to last about 45 minutes, will be immediately followed by a victory rally at Staples Center.
The Kings won the title on home ice with 3-2 victory over the New York Rangers in Game 5 on Friday night.
