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.

LOS ANGELES — The Los Angeles Kings have won the 2014 Stanley Cup Championship, defeating the New York Rangers, 3-2 in double overtime on Friday night at Staples Center in Los Angeles, taking the series in five games.

With 17 interviews from the on-ice celebration, Frozen Royalty will have several stories coming later today and on Sunday. But for now, here’s something many Kings fans are anxiously awaiting…

As most Kings fans know, Hall of Fame play-by-play announcer Bob Miller and color commentator Jim Fox were sidelined after the first round of the playoffs due to NBC’s exclusive rights to televise games from the second round on.

Although Miller and Fox were seen during pre-game and post-game shows, that is certainly not the same as hearing them on game telecasts. But like they did for the potential deciding games of the 2012 Stanley Cup Final, Miller and Fox recorded their call of Friday’s Game 5 for later distribution.

Los Angeles Kings Reminisce About Their Days At Culver City Ice Arena

CULVER CITY ICE ARENA CLOSING: With the imminent, permanent closure of the historic Culver City Ice Arena looming just a couple of weeks from now, in a three-part series, Frozen Royalty takes a look back at the old barn that was the Los Angeles Kings’ first practice facility—it was their practice home for more than twenty years.

LOS ANGELES — On February 2, Los Angeles’ Westside will lose an icon of the hockey and figure skating communities when the Culver City Ice Arena shuts its doors for the last time.

Owners of the property have leased it to Planet Granite, which has announced plans to open an indoor rock climbing, yoga and fitness center at the location.

Supporters of the ice rink have organized to try to save it, but with a lease already signed, and with the City of Culver City having no legal authority to void the lease, or the money to purchase the property via eminent domain, prospects look less than grim for saving the rink.

That dim, almost pitch black outlook is a big disappointment to the Los Angeles Kings family, as the Culver City Ice Arena was the team’s practice facility from their earliest days to the mid-1990’s, when they moved to Iceoplex in the San Fernando Valley.
