Let’s face it, Los Angeles is not a hockey town.
Despite the fact that the Kings are playing in the Stanley Cup final for the second time in three years and the team boasts one of the most talented rosters in the NHL, the City of Angels is all about the NBA’s Lakers.

But, hey, at least the Great One is still a big name in the big city. Even if he hasn’t worn the Black & Silver since 1996.
Aja Dang of Fox Sports went to Venice Beach in L.A. to gauge the excitement of, er, Kings fans during the Cup final … and what they hope to see from Gretzky in the series.
