Uniformed officers made stops at The Hollywood Way, Champs, Hooters, Buffalo Wild Wings , The Office, and almost every location that had the game being played on big screens.  Barneys Beanery was filled to capacity with a packed house of fans enjoying beer, wings, and everything else.  Officers stopped in when there were a couple of goals already scored and the place was loud, but nothing out of hand.  Officers then moved on to other village restaurants.

According to The Los Angeles Police Department, they only took a couple of people into custody for minor offences.  The acting Commander of LAPD Downtown Operations said LAPD are real fans of LA Kings fans and how they partied respectfully.
