My family is from Michigan and while I haven't been to the Joe when the Kings are playing (been to other games), I haven't seen really anything close to the obnoxious behaviour of some of the Red Wings fans that come to Staples. People in the midwest are pretty friendly people.

I think at Staples (or any visiting arena for that matter) there are a good number of Detroit bandwagoners but LA has a pretty large amount of Michigan transplants. Go to an Angels/Tigers game and you'll see quite a few Tigers fan (myself being one of them).

I called a guy out on not being from Detroit once at Staples only to have him show me his Michigan drivers license. I felt like a total ass!
