Kings will celebrate Stanley Cup with parade Monday

The Los Angeles Kings' Stanley Cup victory celebration will continue Monday with a downtown parade.

The festivities are set for noon, with the procession beginning at Figueroa and 5th streets and ending at Staples Center.

The Kings' 3-2 double-overtime victory Friday night over the New York Rangers gave the team its second Stanley Cup in three years. The Kings won the NHL championship in 2012.

Meanwhile, L.A. Mayor Eric Garcetti is ready to collect on his bet with New York Mayor Bill de Blasio.

"Our Kings of the ice were once considered underdogs," Garcetti said Friday night. "But with two Stanley Cup wins in three years, they have proved they are Kings of the game."

The mayors had bet that if the Rangers won, Garcetti would sing Frank Sinatra's "New York, New York," on "Jimmy Kimmel Live."

But instead, it looks as if De Blasio will be singing Randy Newman's "I Love L.A."

LAPD Chief Charlie Beck and New York City Police Commissioner William J. Bratton bet a pastrami sandwich that their home team would win the Cup.

On Saturday morning, Bratton signaled his intent to honor the bet. He tweeted a photo of Katz's Deli in New York and tagged Beck's Twitter account.

"Do you take your pastrami sandwich with or without mustard? Congrats!" Bratton tweeted.
