As the LA Kings have been making their playoff push this postseason, the LA fans were treated to just how little their cities media knows about their team and the sport.

NBC4 was talking about the three LA teams involved in the two playoffs that are occurring.

The issue was the Kings logo that was shown during the broadcast was not only from a team based in another city, but was from another sport entirely.

The Kings are now getting ready to play in their first Cup Finals since 1993, and have set league records during this postseason.

The media in LA seems to have placed the Kings so low on the list that they have forgotten there was even an NHL team in their city.

They seem to have forgotten that the Kings have been in LA since the first expansion in 1967.

So while the Kings do well at home in regards to ticket sales, they still struggle for air time. The Kings are lost behind Basketball, Baseball and of course Football.

They are not the only team in the NHL that is suffering in a town that has forgotten them.

In the slides that follow we look at home ticket sales and TV ratings, not including the postseason, for 10 teams where their city has forgotten about them. Also, an alternative location is suggested.
