UNFINISHED BUSINESS: In Chicago, Ed Sherman reported NBC's Mike Emrick "wouldn't be surprised" if his broadcast partner Ed Olczyk "eventually leaves the booth to take a position with a team." Olczyk, who was fired as Penguins coach in '05, "continues to say he has 'unfinished business' in the game." Emrick: "He offers so much in the telecasts in terms of teaching the game.
