Great Moments From The NHL On FOX: Alex Kovalev Dominates in Montreal… For the Rangers

Kovalev/Kovalov, let’s call the whole thing off.  The shifty veteran forward has often had his name pronunciation mangled by announcers, and both Doc Emrick and John Davidson are guilty here (though Emrick would eventually get it right, JD still goes with “ov” to this day) of getting it wrong.

But they get it wrong quite often, because AK27 is at his finest in this, the sixth game of the Rangers-Canadiens playoff series, back when Alex was shining on Broadway.  It’s some great action for fans of glow pucks, robots, and dangling Russian forwards.

    It always drove me crazy when Sam and JD called him “Kovalov”. Because then all the a-hole Ranger fans would constantly be talking about how great “Alexei Kovalov” is. As if Ranger fans aren’t annoying enough, here they can’t even say their own player’s name correctly.

    do you think FOX today (given how they cover NASCAR, MLB, NFL, and BCS) could do better, worse, or the same as FOX did back in the 90s, which you seem to like based on all the video clips you post.

    i love how they could provide the relevant information on the screen without taking away from the picture, like is done today.
