Gerald Strong, a self-proclaimed lifelong LA Kings fan, is extremely excited his team has qualified for their second Stanley Cup Final in three years. He feels the Kings’ roster will be particularly bolstered when Kobe Bryant returns from his injury-plagued season in time for Wednesday’s Game 1 against the NY Rangers.

“Man, getting Kobe on the ice will be huge,” said Strong. “Plus he’ll be skating with Gretzky, which will be insane.”
