Last Saturday, the Bismarck Bobcats took on the Austin Bruins in a North American Hockey League game, and Bismarck prevailed 4-3 in overtime. Three of their goals came in the third period, and two came in the last three minutes of the game after a boarding penalty on Austin's Brandon Whalin gave Bismarck a five minute power play. This video starts with the hit by Whalin into the boards, and the commentator goes nuts for the hit before Bobcats players jump onto Whalin. After starting his call with "OH NO, THEY'VE GOT TO SAVE WHALIN!!!" (which is up there with "boom goes the dynamite" and "pyrotechnics" in my mind), he then goes into a 35 second long tirade of screaming "IT WAS A CLEAN HIT!" over and over again, pausing only to breathe. We're not totally certain of the identity of the announcer, but a brief look at the Bruins website identifies James Lilledahl as their play by play announcer. My brief research has been inconclusive thusfar, but I'm determined to find out who made this call...just to find out if he really thinks this was a clean hit. [CBS Sports]
