Los Angeles Kings Win Game 3 of Stanley Cup Playoffs, Hollywood Celebrates
As the Los Angeles Kings take one step closer to etching their names on the coveted Stanley Cup, Hollywood fans are sounding off in celebration of the team’s game three victory at home.
Following two overtime wins earlier in the series, the Kings took a two goal lead in the second period on Sunday – making the score 2-0 – before doubling their goals before the third and final buzzer. With an impressive 4-0 win, goalie Jonathan Quick gave a standout, shutout performance, while Alec Martinez, Anze Kopitar, Jeff Carter and Justin Williams put the puck in the New Jersey Devils' net.
According to NBC, the Kings are now the first NHL team to take 3-0 leads in four straight series ever since the league adopted the seven-game series format.
Jerry Bruckheimer, Cory Monteith, Rob Lowe, David Boreanaz, Hilary Duff, Alyssa Milano and more took to Twitter following the big win to share their excitement. Next up: the Kings will face the Devils for a fourth, and possibly final, time on Wednesday in front of a home crowd that is bound to include more than a few Hollywood notables.
Below, find a sampling of tweets from some of the Kings’ most diehard local fans.
