Hockey Night in Canada wraps up 2011-12 in grand style

The CBC continues to impress with their Hockey Night in Canada presentation of the NHL, and last night is no exception.

Here's the pregame montage:



Then, the presentation of the winning team (love the "favorite player growing up" mentions):


Lastly, but by no means the least, the HNIC Stanley Cup playoffs montage - by that, I mean the entire four-round playoffs tournament. This is the equivalent of the CBS "One Shining Moment" montage at the end of the NCAA men's basketball tournament.



Love 'em.

I know that the CBC is going to have a hard time renewing their NHL package considering the competition it's receiving from TSN (whose product, in my opinion, is inferior) and budget cuts from the Canadian government, but gosh...I sure hope they figure out a way to continue to present Canada's game in such a great way.

  2. Bernier's favorite player growing up was Brodeur? Wonder how Marty feels.
