Some of California’s best hockey teams are located nearby, and each season they compete in a freeway faceoff. The Anaheim Ducks and the Los Angeles Kings faceoff in this cross-town rivalry, and there’s plenty of action to see on the ice as the end of hockey season heats up! This month provides opportunities to support and enjoy their neighborhood rivalry as they battle at both the Anaheim Honda Center and the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
With two teams being in each other’s backyards, the friendly rivalry that is the Anaheim Ducks vs. LA Kings has been going on for sometime. So what makes them rivals? The LA Kings initially were playing at the Forum in Inglewood until their move to the Staples Center in the early 2000’s. The Walt Disney Company founded the Anaheim Ducks after the movie “Mighty Ducks” in 1993, selling the franchise in 2005. Both teams have had chances at winning the Stanley Cup, however the LA Kings bumped out the Anaheim Ducks for a run at the Stanley Cup in 2014. Was this the source of the rivalry?
A spin on the “Freeway Series” from major league baseball, the “Freeway Faceoff” is used to describe any game played between the Anaheim Ducks and the LA Kings. The name comes from the massive freeway system in the LA metro area, as both teams are connected by the I-5 freeway. Although this rivalry is not as publicized or as popular in the NHL as other rivalries, locals and fans know that the action is intense. The 2018 game schedule shows 3 upcoming games as the Anaheim Ducks take on the LA Kings.
