from Pete Dougherty of the Times Union,
Please, ESPN, won’t you come back to the NHL?
Tonight on Versus, something that has happened throughout the Stanley Cup playoffs, Bill Patrick welcomed viewers back to the studio at the conclusion of the Penguins-Canadiens game.
“We’ll be taking you to the third period in Detroit, as the Red Wings face off against the San Jose Sharks in Game 4 of their series in just a few moments, but first, back to the highlights of the game you just saw.”
The italics are mine. Why do we want highlights from a game we just saw when we know another game is going on?
Such backward thinkng is typical of Versus and the NHL, which needs to find a new cable television partner.
