From William Houston, for Thursday’s Globe & Mail,
The CBC and NBC have different philosophies when it comes to televising hockey and they stood out during the fifth game of the Stanley Cup final.
NBC takes a journalistic approach. There’s plenty of reporting and analysis. They try to get the information to you quickly.
The CBC has a style that isn’t quite as energetic or urgent. At times the telecast seems almost cinematic in the sense that talk is less important than pictures.
Both work. It depends on what you want from a telecast. But for such a pivotal game, the CBC’s coverage seemed too low-key at times.
On one subject, NBC and CBC were in agreement: The officiating, given the importance of the game, was poor. NBC’s Pierre McGuire made note of cheap calls and so did the CBC’s Harry Neale.
