    4. He definitely will be calling some games just not in the 1st round only when the stars series ends & for sure in the 2nd round that's why there's other announcers like Albert, Miller, Cuthbert, Emrick, Forslund and other simulcast announcers calling 1st round games if Dallas missed the playoffs he would be calling more games but that's not the case this season

      Delete
    5. blackhawks vs blues game 2 i don't know, but game 3 must be doc emrick or kenny albert announce, but i think more possible emrick, albert is game 2 of NYR@PIT,john fursland absolutely is announce most game of Preds and Ducks,MIN@DAL in Dallas maybe all is gord miller,sharks vs kings maybe only for Randy Hahn until if have game 7.Other i not clealy.
