by Jesse Cohen @KingsMenPodcast / LAKings.com

Now, the two teams will face each other in the best-of-5 Conference Quarterfinal of the 2017 Calder Cup Playoffs

If the opening round matchup winds up needing all five games to be decided, the Reign and Gulls will have played each other in nine of their previous ten games.

If the two teams weren't already intimately familiar with one another, the two teams met last season in the Conference Semi-Finals, with Ontario defeating the Gulls in five games, 4-1.

50 Forgotten Stories: Bob Miller & Roy Storey

If it was not for Roy Storey, Bob Miller would have been the voice of the LA Kings for 45 years

by Sheng Peng @Sheng_Peng / LAKings.com

This was Bob Miller's 44th year as the LA Kings broadcaster, but it could have been his 45th.

In April 1972, Lakers announcer Chick Hearn, who was charged with finding a replacement for Jiggs McDonald by owner Jack Kent Cooke, recommended Miller for the job.

Shortly thereafter, Miller learned that Los Angeles was going with Roy Storey.

The Hall of Famer recounted in his memoir Tales from the Los Angeles Kings, "I later found out that Cooke always had to let you know he was in charge. If you came to him with three persons to hire and you picked one, he would pick another just to show you he was the boss. That was what happened to Chick." 

Storey lasted just one season in LA before he was fired.

So what was the story ... with Roy Storey?
