Mark Bavis and Garnet "Ace" Bailey were scouts for the Los Angeles Kings. They died on September 11, 2001, when their flight, United Flight 175, crashed into the South Tower of the World Trade Center.

But, as the photo below illustrates, while they may have lost their lives, they didn't lose their day with the Cup. The Stanley Cup, alongside the families of Bavis and Bailey, visited the 9/11 Memorial at Ground Zero in New York Sunday.

It's not the first time Bailey and Bavis have been honoured since the Cup win. Back in June, New York-based Kings fan Dave Krasne took a "Stanley Cup champions" hat to the memorial and laid it between the two men's names.

But a hat is one thing. A day with the Cup is something else entirely, and it's great to see that the Kings ensure the Bailey and Bavis families still got theirs.

While the Kings began a new era with their Cup win, it's great to see that they've still taken a moment to look back.
