LA Kings Fans Urged “Celebrate Responsibly” Before Game Four

The Los Angeles Kings have the chance to win the first Stanley Cup in franchise history on Wednesday as they attempt to sweep away the New Jersey Devils — so naturally everyone is worried about riots in hockey-crazed Southern California. But fear not — the LAPD and the company that owns Staples Center both say they are on it. Now all the Kings have to do is close out Martin Brodeur and those pesky Devils.

“We are going to have a very visible police presence in the area,” promises an LAPD captain. “We are going to facilitate that celebration with our presence. But the key is that fans celebrate responsibly.”

Funnyman Will Ferrell thinks the LAPD might have their hands full. “It almost doesn’t feel like you’re in L.A,” said Ferrell of the atmosphere at Staples for Kings home games. “It’s like you’re in a totally different crowd and, dare I say it, the noise level blows away any Laker game by far.”

“This is an incredible moment for Kings fans and the city of Los Angeles,” said a rep from AEG, which owns Staples Center. “We believe fans can celebrate responsibly. … As the Kings have progressed in each round of the Stanley Cup playoffs, we have made adjustments to our security staffing and overall plans to account for more people inside and outside of Staples Center, and continue to do that as we now have the clinching game.”
