PITTSBURGH (93-7 The Fan) — Lead NHL on NBC play-by-play broadcaster and noted Pirates fanatic Mike “Doc” Emrick joined The Fan Morning Show on Wednesday to look forward to tonight’s Penguins vs. Rangers matchup, and to offer his thoughts on the Bucs with the 2013 season underway.

He thinks the Penguins are the favorite in the Eastern Conference, despite their loss last night and the injury to Sidney Crosby.

He expressed confidence in the 2013 Pirates, and told the guys what it’s like trying to follow the Bucs while on the road covering hockey. He sounded thrilled to talk about the team as always, and discussed the possibility of working a Pirates reference into his broadcast tonight.
