Miami’s own John Walton with the call of Joel Ward’s overtime winner in game seven that sent the Washington Capitals past the defending Stanley Cup Champion Boston Bruins. What a shame. Boston sucks.
Oh, and I know I need to give a little love to Miami’s “other” radio play-by-play man, Chris Kerber, who has been with the St. Louis Blues for 11 years. Chris, no offense intended, I just happened to grow up with John. I’ll grab some of your calls during the second round where Los Angeles Kings’ defenseman, and former Miami standout, Alec Martinez provides the opposition.
Go Caps, Blues and Kings!
Miami’s own John Walton will again be behind the mic for tonight’s Hockey East second round series opener between the
Evil Empire Boston College Eagles and the UMass Minutemen. Earlier this season, Walton called the Yale/Harvard matchup and will again work with the NBC Sports Network team to bring his talents to the college hockey nation.
And, as the radio voice of the Washington Capitals, Walton will call the Capitals/Bruins tilt on Saturday afternoon so it will be a nice little weekend in Beantown for Mr. Walton.
Tonight’s game will faceoff at 7:30pm EST on NBC Sports Network (formerly Versus formerly OLN formerly Outdoor Life Network).
John, we’ll be watching from Colorado…well, at least I will.
