Los Angeles currently has three professional sports teams playing in the postseason but, according to a recent KNBC graphic (above), the city only has two.
During KNBC’s 6 p.m. newscast on Monday, as anchor Chuck Henry introduced a story about the Lakers and Clippers competing in the NBA playoffs and the Los Angeles Kings playing in the NHL postseason, the station ran a graphic that included the logo of the Sacramento Kings, instead of the LA Kings.
The mistake caught the attention of the hockey Kings and the team tweeted…

To which KNBC responded…
@LAKings: You are correct & we are red-faced. Caught it when it was too late. We’ve corrected the graphic; you won’t see that error again

Last month, Miami’s WSVN made a similar mistake, confusing Florida’s NHL team with a local university.
