2014 STANLEY CUP CHAMPIONSHIP WRAP-UP: Part 5 of Frozen Royalty’s wrap-up of the Los Angeles Kings winning the 2014 Stanley Cup Championship and the ensuing celebration.
LOS ANGELES — The Los Angeles Kings’ journey to the 2014 Stanley Cup Championship was a long, grueling trek that took 82 regular season contests, 26 playoff games and thousands upon thousands of miles traveled by air, especially during the regular season.
Although their journey was not as long, either in the time it took or the total distance traveled, Per-Christian and Ida Holth are among those who traveled the greatest distance (they may be the ones who came from the most distant location) to see the Kings win the 2014 Stanley Cup Championship on June 13 at Staples Center in Los Angeles, and then celebrate the victory at the parade in Downtown Los Angeles on June 16.
The Holth’s traveled from Oslo, Norway, approximately 5,300 miles (eleven hours in the air on a direct flight), to be a part of history.
“We arrived on Thursday, and we had tickets for Game 5, so we arrived just in time,” said Per-Christian, 32. “We’re only staying for one week. We were so lucky.”
