Quick headlines Kings' first talk show visit as Cup Champs.
Even the Stanley Cup Champions in recent years have become talk show mainstays, and with their proximity to Hollywood, the Los Angeles Kings are no different.
The Kings will make what is billed as their "network TV debut as Stanley Cup Champions" on Tuesday night's Jimmy Kimmel Live. Jonathan Quick will be the featured guest, as the Conn Smythe winner will "talk about bringing the Stanley Cup to Los Angeles for the first time in franchise history."
Interesting that an ABC show gets the first shot at the Kings instead of, say, NBC's Jay Leno. He's had the Red Wings and Jean-Sebastien Giguere -- among others -- on his show before before. Interesting also that ABC didn't book the Kings for the 8:00 p.m. ET, NBA Finals pre-game edition of Kimmel. Maybe Dustin Penner and co. are still Team Coco?
