LOS ANGELES (AP) — The offseason party is in full swing for the Los Angeles Kings.

The Kings paraded the Stanley Cup through downtown Los Angeles on Monday to celebrate their second NHL title in three seasons.

A raucous contingent of fans lined Figueroa Street as the Kings rode nine double-decker buses and a flatbed truck about one mile to Staples Center. They showed off the Cup, the Campbell Cup and Justin Williams' Conn Smythe Trophy while confetti flew and fans gave a nonstop standing ovation to the champions.

The team gathered at the arena for a sold-out rally celebrating the second championship in Kings history. Los Angeles didn't win a title in its first 43 seasons before winning twice in the last three.
