For the first time in their 45-year franchise history, the Los Angeles Kings have won the Stanley Cup. It's a pivotal moment for a team that's been quickly gaining new fans across the city. But for one fan, this moment has taken 45 years.
Aleta Collins has been going to games since she was 9 years old, when the team began play in Los Angeles in 1967. She loves the team so much, she has a 16-foot by 14-foot banner on the outside of her house in Angelino Heights.
