Except Doc, and sort of Olchyk, I agree. And tonight they all just blow.

All their paychecks are signed by the same guy who signs the Flyers' paychecks. Comcast owns all. #promoteyourproduct #conflictofinterests #businessethics

The best part about this was that in the 1st he said the slow pace favored the Devils and that Lavoliette was yelling at the Flyers to pick up the pace. What a moron.

NBC and the Flyers are owned by the same company...so yeah..there is no love for the Devils, and plenty for the Fly's
(just read your post D I G, same thing)

You can't be serious. I was at the game sitting at the opposite end behind the Devils net that period and I could have sworn that the stands were elevated at least 6 more inches than at the start of the game, the ice was tilted that bad. The Flyers fans were far more realistic about their play, the boos had already started by the mid-way point of the second. Don't know what game the NBC people were watching.

Unfortunately Pierre Maguire moved to NBC from TSN a couple years after I moved from Canada to the US. I was so happy to not ever have to hear him again when I left, and then he showed up on the American national NHL broadcast. It's actually worse than it was in Canada, because TSN's never got anything past the second round. Having to hear him on the Stanley Cup broadcast makes me want to puke.

Yeah, this was particularly bad. They also offered up some kinda comment like, "You can sense the Flyers are comfortable with this kind of game..."

So getting outplayed and outshot and having to rely on a goalie who's a noted playoff bust is "comfortable"?

Total crazy-sauce, son!

"A lot o' people don't realize what's really going on. They view life as a bunch o' unconnected incidents 'n things. They don't realize that there's this, like, lattice o' coincidence that lays on top o' everything. Give you an example; show you what I mean: suppose you're thinkin' about a plate o' shrimp. Suddenly someone'll say, like, plate, or shrimp, or plate o' shrimp out of the blue, no explanation. No point in lookin' for one, either. It's all part of a cosmic unconciousness."

Kenny Albert just brings no excitement in his play-by-play. Yes, I agree the Tampa guy (who used to do Hartford) is very good, elevates his voice with excitement during scoring opportunities, etc. Even the Caps announcer is a good listen (when he's not doing Cap games).
We know noone is like Doc, but please call the game Kenny like you enjoy hockey.

I think they deferred to the monotone Mc Guire a lot last night. But I'm sure they were scratching their collective heads when he said the Flyers were playing their game. Horse's ass!!

Kenny Albert is a fine PBP guy. NBC just uses a crap setup for their broadcasts. Stop asking guys like McGuire to be both an ice-level reporter and a color guy. The final product sucks. There's a reason McGuire doesn't work in a booth ... he's a terrible analyst.
