Bill: "And you know what, a great effort by Nash, he carried in with Vermette the trailer, gets it to Vermette, he had the lane and room to shoot, got the shot on goal. Could've used a little more there, might have had him had he gone glove instead of stick side, but a good effort by Antoine with a better stop by Jimmy Howard."
It complemented George well on the radio.
I worked at night quite a bit the first few seasons. A lot of second and third shifts, and a lot of time alone, so the radio was often my only option. I really enjoyed those two on the radio; they just seemed to make a good pairing.
I guess I can deal with the pairings we have in the respective booths, but the way the team handled the changes two years ago seemed somewhat bush league. As I understand it, teams usually let broadcasters know where they stand in February/March?
