The Los Angeles Kings raised their first Stanley Cup championship banner Saturday in a joyous ceremony delayed more than three months by the NHL lockout.

With help from the family of a victim of the Sandy Hook massacre, the Kings hung their black-and-white banner in the rafters at Staples Center and received their championship rings before their season opener against the Chicago Blackhawks.

The ceremony was the culmination of Los Angeles' improbable rampage through the postseason last year, when they became the first eighth-seeded team to capture the Cup.

The Kings hadn't played on the Staples Center ice since last June 11, when they completed a six-game victory over the New Jersey Devils in the Stanley Cup finals with a 6-1 win, earning the 45-year-old franchise's first NHL championship.
