Bob Miller, the legendary broadcaster for the LA Kings, called his final two games for the hockey team this past weekend.

The 78-year-old broadcaster has long been the voice of the Kings -- he called 3,351 broadcasts over nearly 44 seasons. But over the past year, Miller suffered two strokes and recovered from a quadruple bypass surgery. Miller was one of the most iconic sports broadcasters both in hockey and in Los Angeles, and his departure from the profession leaves a hole akin to Vin Scully's departure from the Dodgers last season.

Guest:

Bob Miller, American sportscaster and former announcer for the Los Angeles Kings
