2014 STANLEY CUP CHAMPIONSHIP WRAP-UP: Part 6 of Frozen Royalty’s wrap-up of the Los Angeles Kings winning the 2014 Stanley Cup Championship and the ensuing celebration.
LOS ANGELES — One week has passed since the Los Angeles Kings won the 2014 Stanley Cup Championship. Since then, the Kings held the celebratory parade in Downtown Los Angeles on June 16, and a rally at Staples Center that immediately followed the parade.
After that, there was another parade through South Bay cities. The Kings have also taken the Stanley Cup to the beach, restaurants, Las Vegas, a charity poker tournament, and more.
Hockey’s Holy Grail will return to Las Vegas for the National Hockey League Awards on Tuesday.
But going back one week to the Cup-clinching Game 5, when defenseman Alec Martinez scored at 14:43 of the second overtime period to win the game and the Stanley Cup for the Kings, yours truly was able to find the Hall-of-Fame “Voice of the Kings,” television play-by-play announcer Bob Miller, during the on-ice celebration. He spoke about the final moments of the game from his perspective, as he recorded a call of the game with color commentator Jim Fox, which will be made available later this summer.
