Los Angeles landmark gets caught up in the Kings' playoff fever
MAY 25, 2014 3:49p ET
Los Angeles is buzzing with Kings fever as the city's (occasionally) beloved hockey team has taken a 2-1 series lead over the Chicago Blackhawks in the Western Conference finals.
But, one (always) beloved Los Angeles landmark -- Randy's Donuts -- is taking it up a notch. The famous giant donut that stands over the business has been turned into a hockey puck and will stay that way as long as the Kings avoid postseason elimination.
That's impressive, although a hockey puck is considerably less delicious than a nice, warm donut.
"Randy's Donuts is honored and excited to partner with the Kings and to transform our iconic donut into a special Kings hockey puck in support of this historic run toward the Stanley Cup," said Randy's co-owner Larry Weintraub. "The hope is our sign stays a puck throughout the playoff, culminating with another Stanley Cup victory for the L.A. Kings."
Randy's is taking it a step further as it will have a promotion on Tuesday morning. Any Kings fan who comes by between 7-8 a.m. will get a free glazed donut.
Free glazed donut? That's good enough for me.
