In a classy move by an arch-rival, Anaheim Ducks fans gave a loud ovation to retiring Los Angeles Kings announcer Bob Miller while he was calling his final game at Honda Center.

The Ducks gave Miller the royal treatment on Sunday, a day after he called an amazing comeback victory for the Kings in what would be his final home broadcast after 44 years on the job.

Anaheim hung a sign from the visiting announcers booth that read "Bob Miller: 44 Years of Broadcast Excellence" and put a huge poster of Miller in action on the inside wall.

Just before the halfway point of the first peroid, though, the Ducks put Miller up on the center ice scoreboard where he waved to fans and was giving a rousing ovation by those in attendance.
