IT'S MILLER TIME: Brown during Thursday's celebration referenced Kings TV play-by-play announcer Bob Miller and said, "The only bad thing about (winning the Cup) was not having this guy calling the games" (FS West, 6/14). Miller in a special to the L.A. TIMES wrote, "It was frustrating that Jim Fox and I couldn't call the games in the Final, but I knew that would happen because NBC had the rights and that's what happens not only in hockey but also the NBA and the NFL and the World Series." Miller: "My greatest fear was always that I would retire and the Kings would win the Stanley Cup the next year. Now I don't have to worry about that. But I'm not going to retire next year. I want to go around the league as Stanley Cup champions at least one time" (LATIMES.com, 6/13).
