Joe Beninati and Craig Laughlin celebrate 25 years together as Capitals ‘simply sensational’ play-by-play duo
For a generation of Capitals fans, Joe Beninati and Craig Laughlin calling Capitals games is all they know.
Saturday, the NBC Sports Washington play-by-play duo will celebrate their 25th anniversary together as the Capitals take on the Flyers at Capital One Arena.
“It’s the friendship that you have off-air that generates the on-air,” Laughlin said in a video produced by NBCSWSH. “I consider Joe to be one of my best friends, but it all starts because we are indeed an odd couple.”
“I love him like a brother,” Beninati added, “but he lives for my pain.”
They are currently the longest-tenured broadcast duo in the NHL.
