PITTSBURGH (93-7 The Fan) – The NHL is back, and NBC announcer Mike “Doc” Emrick talks about it with Sportsradio 93-7 The Fan’s Vinnie & Cook.

Doc explains why he likes the Penguins and the Kings to win their conferences in the regular season.

“I usually don’t pick anything beyond the regular season,” Emrick says, “But, I like [the Penguins'] chances. And the Kings I am totally sold on because they have everybody back.”

Doc also shares his thoughts as the season begins, looks into whether there may be any fan backlash once the game returns, and reveals how the short season will affect how teams approach the start of the year.
