On Sunday, the Washington Capitals defeated the Toronto Maple Leafs in overtime, ending their first-round series in six games. While the result was thrilling, there was a sad side effect for Caps fans. All remaining Capitals playoff games will be broadcast on national television, meaning that CSN’s play-by-play man Joe Beninati and analyst Craig Laughlin will no longer be calling games.
Beninati and Laughlin are a vital part of Caps culture. They bring professionalism and personality to telecasts. Their chemistry is second to none.
