L.A. Kings Win Stanley Cup, Hollywood Reacts
The Los Angeles Kings won their second Stanley Cup in three years on Friday when they beat the New York Rangers 3-2 in double overtime.
While players such as Jarret Stoll (with girlfriend Erin Andrews) and Dustin Brown celebrated on the ice, passing the Cup and some very young babies around as their families rushed to congratulate them, Hollywood's biggest stars took to Twitter to rejoice.
Channing Tatum's 22 Jump Street soared to $22 million in the box office on Friday night, but his focus was on the ice—despite his name flashing on the Jumbotron every few minutes in an ad for the film.
Along with Dawson's Creek star Joshua Jackson, actress Chloe Moretz and NHL commissioner Gary Bettman, Tatum had a very special guest visit his luxury suite at Staples Center, as Kings mascot Bailey dropped by.
Diary of a Wimpy Kid star Moretz screamed in excitement throughout the two overtimes, and after the Kings finally sealed the win she posted videos on Instagram of the reactions inside the suite.

Fargo star Colin Hanks missed the game—a rare occurrence for the die-hard fan—due to a friend's wedding, but still couldn't be happier about the win.
