L.A. Kings jump on Capitals' bandwagon

The L.A. Kings saw their playoff dreams come to an end on Friday night, so they decided to change their colours and cheer for the Capitals. Some of the Kings' faithful were less than impressed.

Is it fair or foul to cheer on another team?

The San Jose Sharks put the final nail in the Kings' coffin on Friday night, ending L.A.'s playoff run.

So what to do when you're eliminated from the playoffs? According to the Kings, you hop right on the next bandwagon.

You can imagine how the Kings' fan base reacted…

Fans of Canadian teams were forced to make a similar decision when no teams north of the border made this year's playoffs: change allegiances or count their losses.
