    I’d said in an earlier post that the winning goal call was better on NBC on second look, it wasn’t a whole lot better. With know red light and no signal from the refs it was obviously hard for Doc or JH to do much with the call.

    Well, all three calls weren’t great. None of them will be classic calls by any stretch of the imagination. The NHL international guys seemed to take the longest to figure out the game was over…

    It’s kind of too bad for Hawks’ fans who have waited so long for this that when they win the Cup it’s on an odd goal…

    For all those Jeremy Roenick fans out there, check out this….

    I have to disagree…look at each closely and use Kane’s position as the barometer.

    NBC : the play-by-play says something like, “…and it’s kicked on back…and it…score!” (7:40 mark of the posted video). For comparative purposes, Kane is already outside the blue line when the call is made.

    CBC : the play-by-play says something like, “it came loose on the other side…it’s over!” (:15 second mark of the posted video). Again, Kane is already outside the Flyers blue line.

    NHL Intermational : the play-by-play says, “where is it…I think it…where did that…it’s in it’s in!” (:11 second mark of the posted video). If you look closely, Kane is still 10 feet from the blue line.

    So physical evidence shows that actually it was the NHL International crew who made the quickest call on the goal.

      the play-by-play announcer on RDS (below) had it best. Of the 3 English-language calls (it may be interesting to contrast the radio broadcasts too), Doc Emrick on NBC had it (you can hear his inflection and he started to say “they scored”) from the shot but turned confused (with the rest of us) when there was no red light of visible puck on the ice.

    So funny to hear all the calls and they are rather dumbfounded for a few seconds before realizing it’s in. What bizzare calls for a bizzare goal. Kind of anit-climatic.

    I think RDS made the best call by far – Pierre Houde saw it go in from the beginning:

  7. Xavier says:

    you called (well actually he called it). Pierre Houde had it on the shot and Kane was still behind the net.
