Hockey returns this weekend. I’m hyped, you’re hyped, we’re all hyped. But with over four months past since any meaningful games were played, it can be hard to get back into that hockey mindset.
Well, NBC Sports and Doc Emrick have got you covered.
Over a rousing score of strings, Emrick gets fans back up to speed with a season recap filled with great calls, spectacular highlights and even an unwelcome reminder that the Blues are still the defending champs.
As milestones are recapped, including Patrick Kane’s 1000th-career point, suddenly the stark truth about why hockey paused in the first place. A shift in perspective to make you appreciate that hockey really is a luxury for the fans and the players.
“We’re tired of saying, ‘we can’t wait,’” says Emrick. “Now, we won’t have to, and neither will you.
“See you at center ice.”
So get excited, because every game of this postseason is available on the NHL on NBC, on every platform.
Enjoy, hockey fans.
