Jimmy Kimmel, on the other hand, is a loyal L.A. Kings fan. "I've been a Kings fan since I moved to L.A. and was a local radio sports guy on KROQ in 1994," said the late-night host, who has launched a bet between New York Mayor Bill de Blasio and Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti in which the loser has to sing his rival city's theme song on Jimmy Kimmel Live!

I'm not sure why, but we didn't have any ice where I lived. It was very hot, a coastal town," she told Yahoo! Sports. "So I played field hockey, but then when I moved to America, I was finally able to join a team once I wasn't contracted to a show. But when I was contracted to a show, I wasn't able to play. But I was living in New York, so I was able to watch, and the Rangers were my default team."

Will Ferrell warned Kings fans to keep their eyes peeled during the 2014 NHL Finals. "I might sneak onto the ice as part of the Kings ice crew," he told Access Hollywood. "You never know.

Two Stanley Cup Finals … out of the last three years is amazing."
