Angelenos rallied outside the Staples Center Friday night after the Los Angeles Kings took their second Stanley Cup victory in three years.
The Kings beat the New York Rangers in a 3-2 double-overtime win after an intense series that came close to a sweep.
"We want the cup!" chants turned to "We got the cup!"
"It was so intense, I didn't know what was going to happen, but we won, and now we're the Stanley Cup champions," a fan said.
