East and West: celebrities pick sides in the Stanley Cup Finals

By Elise Gabriele,

The New York Rangers and Los Angeles Kings are duking it out in a best-of-seven series for the Stanley Cup and A-lister hockey fans are choosing sides.

Celebrity Kings fans are in high spirits considering the Kings are two-for-two after the first two nail-biting games went into overtime and double-overtime, respectively. Hollywood west coast supporters include actors Will Ferrell and Jason Bateman, and basketball player Kobe Bryant, according to NY Daily News.

One Kings devotee, Who’s The Boss? star Alyssa Milano told the NY Daily News that the Kings are as important to Los Angeles as the Rangers are to New York.

“Maybe even more so,” Milano added.
