LOS ANGELES (AP) — The Stanley Cup will be on parade through the streets of Los Angeles on Monday as the Kings and their fans celebrate the team's second championship in three seasons.
The victory parade will begin at noon at 5th and Figueroa streets and head a mile south 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. Police said tens of thousands of people are expected to line the parade route and attend the rally.
The rally will include video highlights from the season, introductions of the team, coaching staff and executives and speeches by many of the players.
The parade and rally will be shown live by Prime Ticket.
The Kings won the title on home ice with 3-2 victory over the New York Rangers during double overtime in Game 5 on Friday night.
