Musings From Tonight And Doc!

Yes in some ways you cannot get enough Doc Emrick.  Doc was honored tonight in New Jersey and we have the photo to prove it.

Before the game, the Devils honored Mike ‘Doc’ Emrick, their television voice for almost two decades. He recently received the Foster Hewitt Memorial Award from the Hockey Hall of Fame for his contributions as a broadcaster.  Quite simply when Doc does retire…the game will not be the same without him.  I can go on and on about how much fun is it just to get the right internet stream and be able to watch the MSG or MSG+ feed with Doc.  Obviously, a whale of a game for him to watch and call as the Devils rallied to win 4-3 in OT in what could be a back to back of the year for New Jersey.

Jamie Langenbrunner scored twice and Brendan Shanahan had a goal and an assist as the Devils erased a 3-1 deficit in the third to send it to overtime and then won it in the extra session for the second night in a row.  Marc-Andre Fleury made 39 saves for the Penguins who really deserved better as the Penguins were outplayed most of the night.

Some Other Notes From Tonight…..

— Minnesota State is beating Minnesota 6-2 late in the third as a melee broke out from a hit from behind.

— Denver University looks primed to take care of Alaska Anchorage.

— Edmonton looking solid against Minnesota

— Calgary and Kipper just rolling along folks over Nashville.

— 12 Games Tomorrow…starting at 12:30pm ET and going all night.

Once again I wanted to thank Steve and tomorrow WAC will bring it as always.  Thank you and have a great night.

NHL Network to Air College Hockey

I love watching some college puck, particularly around the NCAA Tourney.  So it’s great to see that, in addition to ESPNU and CBS College Sports, NHL Network will be airing both regular season and Conference Tournament college hockey from the ECAC, CCHA and WCHA.  The NHL Net will air the ECAC Tournament as well.  It all starts tonight with a big-name matchup between Wisconsin and North Dakota.

Schedule after the jump.
