Game-winning calls from a wild night in the NHL playoffs

Night two in the NHL playoffs proved to include a little bit of everything. In St. Louis, the Blues tied it late and then won it in the third OT. In Colorado, the Avs stormed back from a two-goal hole, pulled their goalie with three minutes left, tied the game with 13 seconds left, and won it in overtime.

Here are the calls, as they were heard , on NBCSN and Altitude Sports network in Colorado:

If we are ranking them:

1. Mike Haynes and Peter McNab (Altitude sports) – the call from the Colorado broadcast is amazing and terrible at the same time.

2. John Forslund (NBCSN – AVs/Wild ) – Something so great about Forslund’s, ” they scoreeeeee…” call.

3.  Dave Strader ( NBCSN – Blues/Hawks ) – Strader, as usual doesn’t go overboard, but he gets the job done.
