Penner and Kings fans seem to be enjoying the experience

While fans of the Lakers and Clippers mourn their teams early exits from the playoffs, Kings fans are rejoicing – and seem to be multiplying by the minute – as LA’s hockey team prepares to play for the Stanley Cup next week. With a 12-2 record in the post-season, it’s hard for the team’s loyal following to be upset about much right now. However, one thing has been a constant bone of contention – Bob Miller and Jim Fox arent’t calling the games on TV. Sure, networks using ‘national’ play-by-play guys instead of the local unit is the norm in pro sports these days, yet it hasn’t quelled the fan uproar in Los Angeles.

Don’t forget though, the Kings also have a rock solid duo on radio…and here’s Nick Nickson’s call of Dustin Penner‘s game-winning goal in the desert:

And just what was the scene at LAX when the team returned home? Take a look:

Finally, give a listen to what Penner had to say about things some 14 hours after what may be the biggest goal in franchise history (so far):

The Kings are scheduled for a team meeting at their training facility in El Segundo at 10:30am today.  They’re believed to be returning to on-ice practice tomorrow. We’ll have notes and quotes up from TSC as things develop later this morning. So, be sure to follow along on twitter and/or facebook.
