The Los Angeles Kings of the National Hockey League delivered one of the most significant upsets of the 2018-19 regular season on March 21 when they shocked the San Jose Sharks 4-2. The Sharks, at 94 points, entered the game with 36 more points than the Kings, at 58 points. However, it was the Kings that came away with a two-goal victory exciting the crowd of 18, 230.
Throughout the evening, the Kings FOX Sports West broadcast team was joined by the great Ron Burgundy (played by the actor Will Ferrell, who portrayed the famous character in the 2004 movie Anchorman). Burgundy provided exceptional comedic relief during the television broadcast and made the game extra enjoyable for fans watching the game at home.
When Burgundy arrived he apologized for being late, because he thought the Kings still played at the Great Western Forum. During the game, Burgundy was served a glass of milk and a burrito from the Kings mascot Bailey. He then kissed the burrito during a moment on Kiss Cam. A montage of highlights from Burgundy could also be seen on Twitter.
On the ice, it was a special night for Kings rookie defenseman Matt Roy. At 9:28 of the third period, Roy scored his first career National Hockey League goal from Alex Iafallo and Anze Kopitar, which at the time, tied the hockey game at two goals apiece.
