It wasn’t the greatest playoffs, although the first round was pretty special, but the Kings have really cool sweaters, so why not them….party on LA.

A friend of mine was a minor league player with Peoria. He was sent up to the Kings, got the Hat Trick and was sent back down the next day. ??? A Quebec native, he finally gave up at some point on US hockey and played a second career in Europe.
He still holds the Peoria team records for Fastest shot and for most goals by a defenseman (by a huge margin). Perhaps most notably, he didn’t bother with a well known hockey ritual that would never lead to a goal. One thousand professional games, not a single fight. A tall man, a decade and a half later, he still looks fit to play.
I suspect that Mike McShane could think of a lot of reasons why not them.
