Bruins-Blackhawks Is Most-Watched Stanley Cup Final Game 1 In 16 Years
Published June 14, 2013
JUST WHAT THE DOCTOR ORDERED: In N.Y., Phil Mushnick notes through the third OT, NBC play-by-play announcer Mike Emrick "remained fresh, alert, engaging." With "play on, he even knew exactly what time it was, making quick mention that Wednesday night's game had just become Thursday morning's, in the East." He "updated the AHL finals, too." Meanwhile, it took until the Stanley Cup Final, but NBC has "fixed in-game analyst Ed Olczyk's microphone so we actually can hear him." And NBC during Game 1 went "light on needlessly distracting graphics, maximizing the live view" (N.Y. POST, 6/14).
