Even After LA Kings Win Stanley Cup, Local Reporters Still Can’t Get Their Name Right

The Stanley Cup championship was over.  The Los Angeles Kings had won the NHL crown, meaning that local news teams wouldn’t have any more opportunities to screw up their logo or continually get players’ names wrong, right?  Nope.

In addition to referring to the puck as “the ball,” Habib flubbed the names of two key Kings players–Anze Kopitar and Drew Doughty. And then, as observant internet commenters have pointed out, KTTV’s graphics department used the old NHL logo. Read more

KNBC Mistakes Sacramento Kings for Los Angeles Kings, Team Calls Out Station on Twitter
