2010 Stanley Cup finals: Live Chat for Game 1 of Flyers-Hawks

May 29, 2010, 10:25 PM EDT

Well, it’s been ages (Monday! Gah!) since there’s been playoff hockey but our patience will be rewarded with Game 1 of the Stanley Cup finals tonight. Come chat with us during NBC’s live coverage of the Philadelphia Flyers vs. the Chicago Blackhawks. It should be mighty interesting to see how these not-so-familiar foes match up.

Need a little more information or just want to check out our pre-Game 1 coverage? Check out this massive preview that features links to the biggest stories from PHT during this week. You won’t regret it.

The chat begins … now!

    NBC’s broadcast is terrible, the arena microphone is too loud and the announcers can barely be heard. Absolutely terrible and on the most important game of the season. Step up NBC step up.

    Maybe the announcers should learn that the 5 hole is between the goalies legs. The goal 2nd goal scored by Chicago clearly went between the flyer goalies right arm and body. The replay shows it clearly if they say 5 hole 1 more time I will turn off the sound.

    holy Crap. Ashlee beat me to the point punch – I never liked that bald host but he keeps misrepresenting the play even when replay makes it obvious. Then he actually mistook Pronger for the other Flyer- what 6’6 isn’t big enough to give a clue.
    Finally the replays are sucky. Either slow it down so the announcers can figure out what is being seen, or get better announcers.

    These announcers are terrible. Even after the replay shows that the second goal for Chicago went of Leighton’s stick. They insist he was beat 5 hole. Look at the replay dumb ass, it went off his stick in between his right arm! 5 hole is between the legs

    Mike Milbury sucks. He was a horrible GM. He sucks as a hockey commentator. And he has a face like Porkey the Pig. Can that bum.

  6. NIck - May 29, 2010 at 9:19 PM

    Shit, anybody know if the game is being shown on another non-nbc station so I can enjoy it. maybe a canadian station?? Seriously.

  7. Boo - May 29, 2010 at 9:20 PM

    Versus does a better job. Doc Emmerich sucks too.

  8. Phil - May 29, 2010 at 9:20 PM

    All I have to say is thank god for Mike Milbury. He keeps McGuire shutup enough to make sense during the intermissions.

  9. Phil - May 29, 2010 at 9:23 PM

    Are you kidding me? At least milbury is keeping mcguire shutup.

  10. JB - May 29, 2010 at 9:24 PM

    Thi is probably the WORST broadcast team ever. The poor goalie is stuck between two blowhards that need to “take over the show so they can hear their own voices”. Pleasw, NBC, can’t we getsome non-ESPN like talent?

  11. Stick - May 29, 2010 at 9:27 PM

    Shut up Phil. eat my asshole.

  12. Nick - May 29, 2010 at 9:29 PM

    Shut up Phil

  13. Nick - May 29, 2010 at 9:43 PM

    Wow. finally a decent replay. that is Good, now I can turn the sound off for the rest of the period until I find it on VS or another network

  14. horsesoldi er - May 29, 2010 at 9:50 PM

    His name is KOPECKY not effing KOLPENSKI – what the eff is wrong with the NBC commentator? Ko-PECK-ee!!!!

  15. Lisa - May 29, 2010 at 9:57 PM

    The Blackhawks have just tied the record of most goals scored in a playoff game!!! Go Hawks!

  16. Steiner - May 29, 2010 at 10:16 PM

    I agree! The network needs to find better commentators.

  17. frankie - May 29, 2010 at 11:07 PM

    Do any of you guys have twitter accts? (James or Brandon) If you do will you email them to me or answer me somehow?

  18. Gloria - May 31, 2010 at 9:41 PM

    Your broadcasting of tonights 2010 Stanley Cup finals is horrible. We can not hear the broadcasters. This is not very professional and it is poor coverage.
    Can not you correct this….other wise do not take over the coverage.
    I do not care how loud the crowd is…this is really horrible. The play by play and comments are lost and we can not hear what them are broadcasting.
    Get it together and fix this!!!!

  19. john - May 31, 2010 at 10:02 PM

    we agree. the sound of the broadcaster/announcers is way off – we hear all the background noise and not the commentators although apparently we’re not missing much?! I like Bill Clement and Gary Thorne – even Barry Melrose is a better play by play than these yahoos.
