Ever wonder what it’s like to put together a Hockey Night in Canada game broadcast? On Saturday night, we let you peer behind the curtain by putting a camera and microphone into the control room of the Montreal Canadiens-New York Islanders broadcast.
How does the production team deal with goals, highlights and plays under review? Just click on the videos to see:
THE BEGINNING OF THE GAME
Buckle up, and have fun everybody.
THE FIRST GOAL, THE FIRST FIGHT
Who else but P.K. Subban would open up the scoring? See how the production team reacts to the highlight and the fight that broke out shortly after.
PENALTY: DID THEY GET THE WRONG GUY?
A penalty occurs and the team rushes to find out when the infraction happened. Did the refs pull the wrong guy off the ice?
OKPOSO SCORES, GETS ISLANDERS ON THE BOARD
Kyle Okposo is on a tear lately so naturally we want to see his goal again.
CANADIENS SCORE, HALAK PULLED
The Habs score another and chase their former teammate Jaroslav Halak from the crease. And he’s not happy about it. Get the best anger angle!
GOAL UNDER REVIEW
Chaos ensues when the league has to review a goal. The team in the truck chases down the best angles to show you, while trying to determine themselves whether or not it was in. They also get ready for viewers from the Toronto-St. Louis game to join in.
