All Kings fans in attendance will receive a commemorative “Back in Black” rally towel.  Game Three’s rally towel is presented by Sony – Priest in 3D.  Game Four’s rally towel is presented by San Manuel Indian Bingo & Casino.  The Kings Care Foundation will also be selling “Eye Black” on the concourse for a donation to the foundation.

“This is the most exciting team of the year and the perfect time for our fans to help give us the ultimate home ice advantage,” said Kings President of Business Operations Luc Robitaille.  “We want everyone to be at STAPLES Center early and we want everybody at STAPLES Center to be loud tomorrow and Thursday.  We want everyone to enjoy this special event.”
