It was the second time in three seasons that President Obama honored both teams in the nation’s capitol, saying “today feels a little like Groundhog Day. If you’re feeling a little déjà vu, you’re not alone,” reports CBS LA.

The Kings won the Stanley Cup Championship for the second time in three years last year, and the LA Galaxy celebrated its fifth championship win. The President commented on the LA Kings’ impressive season and ability to transform sunny LA into a hockey town.

“The Kings have done the unthinkable — they have turned a city with no snow and no ice and no winter into a hockey town complete with an outdoor game in Dodger Stadium,” he said.
