Stanley Cup Game 2: Three Overtime Games Bring Out the Best in Doc Emrick


Remember when ESPN used to broadcast the NHL? Anyway here’s an old clip of the current voice of the NHL on NBC, Doc Emrick, clowning around with Bill Clement following a three-overtime game back in 1987 between the Islanders and Caps that aired on the Worldwide Leader. (RIP Tom Mees.) Game 1 of the 2013 Stanley Cup Finals also happened to go into three overtime periods Wednesday night, however i didn’t lead to any impromptu John Wayne impressions from the broadcast booth.

Tonight in Chicago Emrick will call Game 2 with the Blackhawks looking to take a 2-0 lead on the Bruins. It’s doubtful this level of hi-jinks will ensue again, but we’ll have our fingers crossed.

Also, it appears the New York Rangers have hired a new coach, Alain Vigneault.
