INGLEWOOD, Calif. -- The ever-growing Los Angeles Kings bandwagon added one of California's most famous landmarks this weekend.

The iconic donut on top of Randy’s Donuts in Inglewood was converted into a hockey puck Saturday night and will remain that way for the remainder of the 2014 Stanley Cup Playoffs.

The Kings beat the Chicago Blackhawks 4-3 on Saturday to take a 2-1 lead in the Western Conference finals with Game 4 on Monday in Los Angeles.

"The donut and the L.A. Kings are both extremely recognizable in our community," said Luc Robitaille, the Kings' President of Business Operations. "We believe it is a great match and our fans will have fun with it during this exciting time."

On Tuesday, the Kings will host a special fan giveaway at Randy’s Donuts from 7-8 a.m. with the Kings and Randy’s giving out a free glazed donut to all Kings fans who come by Randy’s during this time. Members of the Kings Ice Crew and the team's mascot, Bailey, will be there.

"Randy’s Donuts is honored and excited to partner with the Kings and to transform our iconic donut into a special Kings hockey puck in support of this historic run toward the Stanley Cup," said Larry Weintraub, co-owner of Randy’s Donuts. "The hope is our sign stays a puck throughout the playoffs, culminating with another Stanley Cup victory for the L.A. Kings."
