Los Angeles crowns its Kings with parade and rally

The Los Angeles Kings are celebrating their first Stanley Cup championship with a parade and rally Thursday in downtown Los Angeles.

Players, coaches and other team officials will ride double-decker buses down a one-mile stretch of Figueroa Street, city officials said, beginning at noon at 5th Street. The procession is expected to last 30 to 45 minutes, and end between L.A. Live and Staples Center.
