Call of the Night: Heeeeeere's Johnny!



This call by Jim Hughson is actually better than this breakaway goal scored by Johnny Gaudreau during the Flames 5-4 OT win on Saturday over the Rangers. Not that these two fans give a hoot about the call that went out to Canada during last night's Hockey Night in Canada broadcast:



And Gaudreau's goal was pretty spectacular, just like his play at home has been all year (he is second in the NHL in points scored at home with 10-14-24). But we must give credit where credit was due. The call was better than the goal. There were actually two classic calls during last night's NHL action, and we thought that Rick Jeanneret's call of Ryan O'Reilly's OT winner was the best--until we heard this gem by Hughson. Using a line from "The Shining" as Gaudreau ambles in on a breakaway? That's just too good.
