    No Olcyk, he couldn’t make the trip.

    And I, for one, am enjoying it more with only Emrick and McGuire. I don’t get this fascination networks have with three man booths in all sports, but especially in hockey, and especially when Pierre–someone who sort of needs room to go on about stuff–is part of that booth.

    I do, however, wish Emrick would stop lecturing the audience about the merits of fighting and aggressive play. Maybe it’s sort of pushed on him from NBC higher-ups, but who do they think is watching this game? Figure skating crowd see ice and accidentally stay on the channel?

    Milbury is going to do the third period in the booth.

    It sounded like another spat between Milbury and McGuire at the end of the second intermission. Did anyone catch what happened? I was only half listening when it seemed like Milbury sort of went off on McGuire. Something about not letting him finish talking or something. Milbury can’t seem to get along with anyone, on any network, without some drama.
