The LA Kings sealed a 4-1 series win over the New York Rangers on Friday night and claimed their second Stanley Cup in three years, on Monday, they had their presentation parade.

After their double OT heroics, the Kings players, coaches and staff took to the open top buses to parade their newly claimed Stanley Cup trophy through the streets of Los Angeles.

Fans came out in droves to support their Kings and brought with them an interesting set of banners.

Across the Staples Center read a large banner claiming "we are all Kings", a nice site to see after the other team occupying the arena, the LA Lakers had a fairly poor season this year.

Perhaps the best banner seen throughout the day contained the logos of the four teams the Kings defeated in this years play-offs on the way to winning the Stanley Cup.

the logos of the Anaheim Ducks, San Jose Sharks and New York Rangers were all crossed out, but LA's conference rival Chicago Blackhawks instead had the word 'payback' written across their logo.

A reference of course to last years Western Conference Finals where the Blackhawks triumphed 4-1 in the series over the Kings.

Amongst the confetti fans grabbed their phones to capture some images that they will surely be hoping to see again over the coming years.
