A video of Will Ferrell chanting "Go Kings Go!" could be seen playing on the corner of 33rd and 7th Avenue in New York City, directly facing Madison Square Garden. As Deadspin points out, the video is from a 2012 promo for the Kings' run to the Stanley Cup. 

The series continues at 7 p.m. ET tonight in Los Angeles but shifts to New York for Game 3, where fans will have to pass the massive video screen of Will Ferrell as they make their way to the arena.
