Wyshynski with the massive scoop:
NBC Sports’ makeover of VERSUS’ NHL coverage will begin dramatically with Monday’s broadcast of the New York Rangers at the Detroit Red Wings.
According to a network source, Sam Flood, executive producer for NBC Sports and the man that’s overseen its Winter Classic broadcasts, will produce Monday night’s coverage.
Pierre McGuire will debut as an “inside the glass” (i.e. between the benches) commentator, joining Doc Emrick and Eddie Olczyk in announcing the game.
On Tuesday, VERSUS studio analyst Brian Engblom will be “inside the glass” for the Buffalo Sabres and the Tampa Bay Lightning. Mike Milbury will be inside the studio in place of Engblom.
