I mean, it seemed like broadcast was Pens first the entire game. Massive excitement when Pens score, but only initial excitement when Flyers score, but fades fast. Not to mention the ego stroking of the Pens' stars.
Gargano and Macnow might know him personally. He seems like a nice guy, and he does know a lot about the game. That probably has something to do with it, along with the fact that he's been doing it for a long time.

I also thought the same thing about the him with the Pens favoritism in the past, but I think I figured out that he favors the home team. I don't know if he thinks he needs to be louder to be heard over the cheers, or if its just something he does, but it seems like he gets more excited for the home teams.
