Favourite memories? Neale has many. "When you've done it as long as I have it's the next moment that's the best one," he said. He remembers the night in New Jersey during the 1988 Stanley Cup playoffs when Devils coach Jim Schoenfeld's tirade towards referee Don Koharski triggered a walkout by the officials. Neale and play-by-play man Bob Cole were forced to keep talking until the game finally started. "It was nothing but hot air," Neale chuckled. Then there was the 1987 playoff game that went into four overtime periods before Pat Lafontaine scored to give the New York Islanders a 3-2 win over the Washington Capitals. "I remember how hungry I was," Neale said. "I was also getting to the age where I couldn't go seven periods without going to the bathroom. "The washroom in the old Washington rink was quite a hike and fairly crowded by the time I could get to it."read on
