The Los Angeles Kings won the Stanley Cup and now they've lost the puck.

According to Arash Markazi of ESPNLosAngeles.com, the team that won the Stanley Cup in June is unable to locate the puck that was on the ice when the horn sounded after the series clinching Game 6 win in Los Angeles against the New Jersey Devils:

Replays of the final seconds of that game show that New Jersey left winger Patrik Elias flipped the puck into his glove while the Kings celebrated, but what he did after that is still unknown. After the handshake line he appeared to hand his stick to someone in the crowd, but it isn't clear whether the puck went there, as well.
