    Intersting that HNIC has put the “number one crew” on the afternoon game. It should be a good one.

      It’ll be a breath of fresh air from the usual Bob Cole/Greg Millen team for us Habs fans. I’m glad Jim Hughson is in Montreal for the Super Bowl weekend games.

    They put them on the afternoon game because they have a BOS-MTL game on Super Bowl Sunday and they want them to to both without having to travel.

    Makes excellent sense. I wish NHLCI in the States was taking the Sunday afternoon game but it doesn’t look as if they are at least on DirecTV.

      I checked the Center Ice listings for In Demand (the cable version of Center Ice, as opposed to the DirecTV version) the other day and they now have the Montreal-Boston game listed, though I’m not sure if it’s just the NESN feed or the CBC one too.

        At this point DirecTV just has one feed which means it will be the NESN feed.

    That was a most enjoyable game this afternoon. If there is a better play by play guy than Jim Hughson, I’m not sure who that would be. It’s too bad he won’t be heard during the Olympics.
