Thoughts With Rick Jeanneret

from Mike Harington of the Buffalo News,

Buffalo Sabres broadcaster Rick Jeanneret was removed from the KeyBank Center press box on a stretcher during the third period of the team's game Saturday night.

There was no immediate word on his condition.

Jeanneret, 76, was reportedly feeling light-headed on the air and stopped talking during the broadcast of the game against the Anaheim Ducks.

The broadcast continued with Rob Ray briefly calling play-by-play from between the benches before intermission host Brian Duff moved to the press box to continue to call the action.
