Kings stay with Pia Toscano as national anthem singer tonight

pia-toscano-kings.jpgI kind of wondered if the Kings would go for a big name for their first Stanley Cup Final game at Staples Center (as well as the first-ever to be played in the city of Los Angeles.) Nope. They are staying with the voice who brung them. Toscano, an American Idol contestant in season 10, has sung the anthem before each playoff game at Staples this season. Here she is from the Canucks series in April.
