Kings -- and their fans -- will be in the black for Game 3 at Staples
The Kings will be wearing their black alternate jerseys for all postseason home games and have put out the word to their fans to wear black Tuesday night for Game 3 against the San Jose Sharks. The series is tied at one game apiece.
Fans also are encouraged to be in their Staples Center seats by 7:15 p.m. for the start of a pregame show, while every fan in attendance will receive a “Back in Black” rally towel. (But will black rally towels have an impact?)
Luc Robitaille, Kings president of business operations, said he is looking for "the ultimate home-ice advantage."
"We want everyone to be at Staples Center early," he said, "and we want everybody at Staples Center to be loud tomorrow and Thursday."
The club also plans to hold a Fan Fest beginning at 4:30 p.m. and a "Beard-A-Thon" during the postseason, where fans are encouraged to grow their own playoff beard and help raise money for the Kings Care Foundation.
