Every time I want to completely give up on ESPN and their dwindling hockey coverage, they do something that pulls be back in: like show an Alex Ovechkin goal as an actual top highlight or air a sick breakaway by Stan Galiev even though he’s in the minor leagues.
Over the weekend, SportsCenter straight up killed it again when they did the highlights of the Los Angeles Kings/Montreal Canadiens game with NHL ’94 graphics and sound. This is one of the coolest things I’ve ever seen the channel do.
These video games are part of what made me fall in love in sport as a kid. Every time I hear that ridiculous grunt during a hit or see that gaudy blue ice, my heart warms.
Way to go, ESPN.
(Ugh, I feel so dirty typing that.)
