Bob Miller, Jim Fox to Call Game 4 … Sorta

Los Angeles Kings announcers Bob Miller and Jim Fox will call Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Final Wednesday night, but only fans inside Staples Center will have the opportunity to hear the broadcast duo.

Tom Hoffarth of the Daily News points out the Kings are working out an arrangement where fans can hear Miller and Fox at the concession stand and in-house on the radio. The call of the game will eventually be on LAKings.com. If the Kings lose Game 4, Miller and Fox are expected to call the remaining games in the series.

Even though Kings fans are having the rare pleasure of listening to Doc Emrick call their games for a change, it would be great if NBC switched over to Miller and Fox for the final minutes if the team is on the verge of winning their first Stanley Cup.

Due to all of the confusion by the local media regarding the hometown hockey team, the savvy Los Angeles Kings created a infographic going forward for the remainder of the NHL playoffs.

Liz Habib Proves Why She’s the Worst Sports Anchor in LA

Fox 11 anchor Liz Habib lived up to her ranking as the worst sports anchor in Los Angeles Thursday night, stumbling her way through the highlights from Game 3 of the Los Angeles Kings-Phoenix Coyotes series.

I can cut an anchor some slack for butchering names, but confusing the hockey puck for a ball? Really?

Alyssa Milano Taking Over NHL Twitter Account

Los Angeles Kings season-ticket holder and actress Alyssa Milano is taking over the official Twitter account of the National Hockey League Thursday night during Game 3 of the Western Conference Finals.

It’s a great time to be a Kings fan as our boys are two wins away from their first Stanley Cup Finals appearance in nearly 20 years.

Welcome aboard the Los Angeles Kings bandwagon, Dan Patrick.

Sporting a black home Kings jersey on his national radio show this morning, Patrick has been singing the praises of the hottest team in the NHL.

I’m expecting a witty and offensive tweet from the @LAKings account if they pull off the sweep Wednesday night at Staples Center.

@LAKings Continues the Trash Talking on Twitter

This could get ugly if the Los Angeles Kings manage to hold on in their series against the Vancouver Canucks.

@LAKings Apologize for Canada Tweet

We told you Thursday morning about a tweet from the official Twitter account of the Los Angeles Kings that ruffled the feathers of our neighbors up north in Canada.

As predicted, the Kings issued an apology:

“We encourage our digital team to be creative, interactive and to apply a sense of humour whenever possible. To anyone who found it offensive we sincerely apologize,” said Mike Altieri, the Kings’ vice president, communications and content.

Translation: Since we really mean what we tweeted, we are going with the “to anyone who found it offensive” apology instead of truly saying we’re sorry.
