Eagles win in 3OT and got there by tying game with 2 minutes left. They have something special going on. If they can get through this one, I really like their chances. Series is 3-1 now.

I'm exhausted. Eagles closing in on 90+ games this year. We may have several weeks to go......

Boikov with a 3 point game last night. He has really settled in and looks light-years more comfortable than he was at the start of the playoffs.
It's amazing to me that we have gotten this far with almost no production from our top 2 scoring players from the regular season, but they both finally got the monkey off their backs last night. Thinking the floodgates may have opened up for them, and if so - watch out!

Lol yeah, the Eagles PBP guy is gold. If there was any justice in the world, he and Haynes would switch jobs.

Nantel could have played on our team last season and not look any worse than Colbourne.

I'm just sick of Haynes having no idea what's going on half the time. This guy can't be more of a hockey idiot than Haynes.







Right...?

Right! Don't know how good McGlue would be in a neutral broadcast, but as a homer announcer, he's one of the best!

A highlight clip is different than a real game too. Watching them as they happen calls for a little screaming.

All NHL team announcers are a little bit biased. Their audience is home fans, after all, and they tailor their play calls to that. I don't mind that Haynes is a homer, I just think he's clueless.

True. I think the farther you get down the broadcast and hockey chain, the more leeway guys usually give it also. Smaller audiences that are almost all home fans.

I seem to remember McGlue doing a tv broadcast or 2 and playing it straighter than usual. I think it may have been on Altitude.......Speaking of which, Altitude should just bump the 7:00 Sunday night spot and show the Eagles game. Right now it's scheduled for boxing. In Greeley.

I listen to a lot of other team broadcasts in my travels. You expect homerism or favoritism to a certain degree. Of course they talk about their players, see the calls go their way, want the team to win, etc. The best ones are the crews that talk about the actual game and aren't completely ignorant of the other team. You feel like that crew isn't on your side but isn't against your side either. The worst ones are the ones that get an attitude and get snide about the other team and the whining, oh my god that's the worst. My other peeve is when the guy(s) just refuse to call the game and go into talking points or story mode. Some of that livens a broadcast but should always be secondary. Altitude acts like its Petes Podcast first and foremost, then the Avs are secondary. I understand getting through a 48 point season needed some creativity but it's been going on a lot longer and they've done it during actual critical moments and games. I don't think Dan calls near enough of the game either, which is ok on AHL Live but I don't get enough out of the radio to listen that way.

The other series is going to game 7 to be played on Wed, so at least until then. However, Eagles announced Game 1 and 2 will be Fri, Sun on sale Tuesday.

Eagles win Game 1 3-2 in double OT, they tied the game with 2 seconds left to get it to OT. Nantel with assist on the first goal.

I don't know how much more of this I can take, lol! Eagles now 5-0 in OT during the playoffs. The loudest I have ever heard it at the BEC. From the scrum during warm ups to the double OT winner, the place was electric. Last night was my 500th Eagles game that I have attended, and it was one of the most memorable games I can ever recall. Hoping Sunday is a little easier on the old ticker!!

That was an important win. Stingrays can't clinch at home if they should come back. Eagles did a great job killing the 6 on 5 with the Stingrays' goalie, Milner pulled.
