Nice Look At The Voice Of The Kings

from the Acorn,

“My life changed dramatically right from the announcement that (Gretsky) was becoming a King,” Miller said. “The (number of) telecasts increased from 30 to 62 that first year. Our season ticket holders more than doubled. I would go around town and people would start recognizing me for the first time. It was great to see L.A. finally come to embrace hockey.”
Miller made the call of his life when Gretsky broke Gordie Howe’s scoring record in 1989.
“It’s my favorite moment in my broadcasting career,” Miller said. “I didn’t want it to sound too rehearsed, but then someone called me up asking what I was going to say when he broke the record.
“When he scored I waited a few seconds and said, ‘Wayne Gretsky, the Great One, has just become the greatest of them all- the leading scorer in the history of the National Hockey League.’ I’m just thankful that it was a clear goal so I was able to call the play accurately.”
