ESPN Totally Watched the ‘Canes-Caps Game

Normally, most NHL arenas allow a local sportswriter to select the 3 stars of the Game.  It gives one journalist the supreme power of selecting which three guys have to wait in the tunnel for a quick curtsey, thus pushing them to the back of the line to shower.  Thanks, beat writer.  My wife will be so pissed that I’m going to be late.

Sports Websites often pick The 3 Stars of the Night across all the games as part of their online reporting package.  However, we here at MYFO do not have any insight as to how this selection is made; for all we know it may the primary job of their hockey-coverage intern.  You know, other than getting coffee for Buccigross and Melrose.

Apparently, ESPN’s current hockey intern is Cam Ward’s mother.  Great game, son!


 (Update: apparently cooler heads have prevailed and the Rangers’ Henrik Lundqvist had a strong enough game to displace Cam Ward #2.  The above screenshot was valid as of about 1pm today.  In related news, Mrs. Ward has been fired.)
