Kings’ May Have To Postpone Banner Raising

from Pierre LeBrun of ESPN, 

To be there last June at Staples Center was to witness one of the most remarkable Stanley Cup celebrations in the past decade.

Fans stayed in their seats a good hour past the buzzer to watch their beloved Kings share the Cup with their loved ones on the ice.

After four-plus decades of hockey frustration in Los Angeles, not a single soul wanted to leave the building. They wanted to freeze that moment in time.

They’ll need to hang onto that moment longer, because the Cup-banner raising is on hold with an NHL lockout expected to commence Saturday at midnight ET.

It’s a drag for everyone in the hockey world, but especially for the Cup champs.
