Kings Getting Recognized In LA

from Eric Stephens of the OC Register,

History is at hand for the Kings, and Drew Doughty witnessed up close what the power of a potential Stanley Cup run does to a long-suffering fan base.

The bandwagon effect already has spread to Angel Stadium of all places, where Doughty and teammate Trevor Lewis watched Doughty’s favorite team, the Toronto Blue Jays, blank the Angels on Friday.

“That was the most I’ve ever got recognized,” Doughty said Saturday. “People coming up to me for autographs and pictures. That’s the most that’s ever happened in L.A. for me.

“They threw us on the Jumbotron. I’m sure still half the crowd didn’t know who we were or anything like that. (But) we’ve never had this kind of support in here. It’s great to see and it just makes us want to go even further and win even more.”
