After the parade and rally on Monday June 16, Los Angeles Kings, Alec Martinez and MVP Justin Williams headed to Jimmy Kimmel Live to celebrate.

The Stanley Cup and Conn Smythe trophy were present as Kimmel, Williams, Martinez, and Guiermo line the rim of the Cup with salt and drank margarita out of it.

When asked which one of teammates celebrates the most Martinez answered “I don’t know if it’s one guy in particular. I mean, really, when we all get together, we do a pretty good job of ripping up the town.”

But then Williams and Martinez unanimously mentioned Drew Doughty.

They joined Kimmel and Mayor Eric Garcetti as he collected his bet, when Mayor Bill de Blasio, sang I Love L.A. via satellite. If the Kings had lost Garcetti would have to sing New York, New York.

On June 17 the Kings and the Stanley Cup hit Dodgers Stadium. The team took to batting practice before the gates opened. Apparently Jeff Carter had the best swings. Then the Kings were honored at Dodger Stadium during a pre-game ceremony as players posed for photos, lifted up the Cup, received huge cheers, and threw out ceremonial first pitches.

Matt Greene who was a season ticket older and still attends games said, “Unreal. Huge. To be able to come out here and get treated the way we do is awesome. The players, management, coaches have been more than accommodating for us to be coming out here and letting us have a good time and kind of have a little fantasy camp of our own today.”
