Monday's game between Carolina and Florida will not be on local television because of the weekly Monday night Versus broadcast exclusive period. But important games deserve important attention.
So the NHL packages NHL Center Ice (television) and Game Center Live (online) have coordinated with the Panthers in-game crew to transmit scoreboard video production and the team's radio call from Randy Moller
and Bill Lindsay
on NHL Center Ice and Game Center Live. That's good news for Hurricanes and Panthers fans who are rooting for their clubs to make the playoffs. Plus, it's good news for all hockey fans who are watching the seesaw battles for the last two to four spots in each conference's playoff pictures.
And even movie buffs might want to tune into the special game production. Moeller, the Panthers’ radio announcer is known for his clever and often hilarious use of movie script lines as part of a Florida goal call.
Carolina has notched 85 points and ranks sixth in the Eastern Conference. A win tonight places the Hurricanes into fifth place, one point ahead of Pittsburgh.
If Florida can pull out a home victory, it would take over the eighth and final spot with 82 in the Eastern Conference, leapfrogging one point ahead of Montreal.
Catch the action, Monday night, 7 p.m. ET, on NHL Center Ice and Game Center Live.
