With the Stanley Cup Final in Boston and the series tied at 1-1, we're joined before a pivotal Game 3 by NBC's voice of the NHL – Mike "Doc" Emrick. Doc is widely regarded as the best play by play man in sports and has been honored by the Hockey Hall of Fame. We talk to Doc about the Bruins-Blackhawks series and some of the traits that make him one of the elite announcers in the business. Topics include:
-How he keeps going for multiple overtime games.
-The Doc Emrick lexicon and his legendary vocabulary repertoire.
-The way the NHL has bounced back after this year's work stoppage and the significance of an Original Six Final.
-The connection between the Bruins and the city of Boston.
-The potential for this Final to rate as one of the best ever.
-The players that will be key for both teams the rest of the series.
