Arguably one of the greatest single game goaltending performances of all-time, and I say that as someone who thinks Richter in general is a bit overrated.

Doc is something else. People seem to either hate him or love him, hardly anyone is like "he's ok". I could listen to him every single game, quite happily.

If Bill Clement commentated these games I'd be very happy. Awesome guy to listen to commentate.

I really thinks it's bologna that we can't just have MSG do all the games like they did in the 80s, 90s, etc.

I can't stand forced National Broadcasts.

How about having both crews announce the games?

I've grown up with Sam calling the games, I'd rather have him call them not someone who was a Flyers and mostly a Devils announcer (Emrick), a Network that is going to shove Crosby and the Penguins down our throat every chance they get, and random Pittsburgh Pirates plugs.

I don't want to hear Pierre Maguire talk at 100 mph and criticize every single play and mistake and constantly interrupt the announcers either.

Just another thing the league gets wrong.

I've heard "marvelous chaos" before from Doc. I enjoy that thoroughly.

Seriously, that might be the worst thread I've ever been in. I sincerely hope that the Caps are paying some of those people to sit there all day and blindly talk them up.

I don't mind the NBC guys. Doc has an annoying voice but I love his emotion in the playoffs. It's better than Joe Buck calling Giant games! Talk about no emotion.

It hurts my brain reading that thread. I'll never understand why fans of other teams speak with such authority and confidence about guys on the Rangers who they've only seen 3 times (vs the Caps) this year.

Apparently Stepan is not a good defensive forward, Callahan is the most blatant diver in the league, Brassard is barely a 3c, Moore<Hillen, Staal and McD aren't good , and Holtby is basically just as good as Lundqvist. Not to mention they're going to stomp the Rangers out easily.

I'm really hoping we completely dominate the Caps, just to shut their fans up.

Joe Buck is the worst. How can a guy like him get so many gigs? You're right, he literally calls the game with no emotion.

I'm not sure if you've seen: (Skip to 1:20)


I actually kinda like it but I can't stand him any other time.

Ironic because of the two teams facing off.

He probably wouldn't be bad if he learned hockey. I mean he has the quintessential broadcasting voice, I guess that's why he gets so many gigs.

I still find him highly unlikable lol

Yeah he has a great broadcasting voice but he's just so bland! Combine his voice with Doc's emotion and you've got the perfect announcer!

He gets so many gigs because of who his father was. It's nepotism at it's finest. There is nothing wrong with his voice but he's too monotonous, robotic, and unenthusiastic.

Joe Buck, you stay the **** away from the NHL!

Awesome vid.

I was a teenager then and that world cup was a great memory.

Forgot how intense it was. Great 15 minute watch.

I like to believe that all sports fan demographics are the same regardless of the area, and then the Capitals fans open their mouths.

And I wonder what the holy royal **** I was thinking before.

Doc is so vastly superior to chumps like Buck that it isn't even funny.

I find it hysterical that so many people on here are experts in analyzing which play-by-play guys and analysts are good/bad. Maybe you guys should contact the networks and get hired to make the decision of who gets which games?

Exactly! You've just created the perfect broadcaster. We need to start a Doc Buck breeding program now.

Of course, we'll probably just end up with an incredibly boring broadcaster with an extensive vocabulary.
