Los Angeles fans bow to Kings as they claim cup
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Hockey has gone Hollywood — and Hollywood couldn’t be happier.
The Los Angeles Kings won their second Stanley Cup in three years Friday night, practically forcing a town never known for its love of the sport to take notice and embrace them.
“It’s the second happiest day of my life,” said 18-year-old Eric Ex of Los Angeles. “The first was the last time they won two years ago.”
