LOS ANGELES — The celebratory atmosphere surrounding the 2012 Stanley Cup Champion Los Angeles Kings took longer to subside than it normally would have for a Stanley Cup Champion, thanks to the delayed start to the new season, courtesy of the latest National Hockey League lockout.
But that atmosphere was back on March 26, when the Kings and the LA Galaxy of Major League Soccer were honored at the White House for their championship seasons by the President of the United States, Barack Obama.
After entering the East Room at the White House, accompanied by Kings head coach Darryl Sutter, and Galaxy head coach Bruce Arena, President Obama opened the festivities by recognizing the LA Galaxy, who have won back-to-back MLS Cup Championships.
