CBC Adds Flames-Blue Jackets to the Hockey Night Lineup Saturday. Your Welcome

Boy, it sure is odd how Bob Cole’s totally turned into the new Pat Summerall in his career after being dropped as the top voice at Hockey Night in Canada.  Just as Summerall found himself calling games far too unglamorous for his dulcet tones, Cole has a Calgary-Columbus game – with Greg Millen, sadly – from Nationwide in Central Ohio on his plate for this weekend.  The game will only air in Flames territory.  The game was only recently announced as an HNIC add-on game.

The big games will have Jim Hughson/Craig Simpson (Habs/Leafs) and Mark Lee/Marc Crawford (Wild/Canucks).  Poor Bob.
