The Los Angeles Kings hosted a street party to welcome the 2008-09 NHL hockey season on Sunday at Staples Center. It was their first home game and the first chance for fans to see some new faces in the line-up including first-round pick Drew Doughty, rookie Matt Moulson and newcomer Jarret Stoll.

The Kings will try to bounce back tonight against their crosstown rivals, the Anaheim Ducks, at Staples Center at 7:30 PM.
