Earlier today, the NBC Sports Group and NHL held a press event at 30 Rockefeller Plaza to celebrate the fifth year of the NHL Winter Classic. Those in attendance included host Liam McHugh, former New York Ranger Adam Graves, Winter Classic host Bob Costas and of course, NHL lead play-by-play commentator Mike “Doc” Emrick.
And we’ve got the video!
Here’s Doc talking about the longstanding rivalry between the Flyers and Rangers and how he expects it to play out on Jan. 2:This video is no longer available. Click here to watch more NBC Sports videos!
This will be Emrick’s third straight Winter Classic — all told, he’ll have worked four of the five in league history. The only one he missed was the 2009 edition between Detroit and Chicago, because he’d come down with laryngitis. Versus’ Dave Strader filled in (of note, Strader also called the 2011 Heritage Classic from Calgary.)
