doc emerick smacks down eddie olczyk on NBC during rags playoff game 2

i found this to be exceedingly funny... to most others it's probably nothing... but i'm watching the New York Rangers vs.the Washington Capitals in game 2... when the OT starts emrick and olczyk look at video of, and talk about, a missed call in the third period on Washington for delay of game as a puck goes over the glass... doc seems to say let's move on and they do... the OT period starts..

coincidentally the same exact thing happens again and Washington is called... but olczyk has a stick up his ass about the previous non call on Washington... perhaps his ranger days flashing in his head? so he goes on this little rant about how both plays (the just called penalty and the missed call) were the same... he breaks it down point by point with a touch of anger in his voice... it was a total homer kind of thing not something you should say during a national broadcast...

emerick is quiet for a moment... he then says in a quiet but definite manner "well now that we've MOVED ON!" sort of sarcastically nudging eddie... then he actually goes on to say how they need to be journalistic in how they are announcing, totally smacking down eddie for his nonsense... eddie to his credit apologized... and they moved on

i thought it was hysterical plus you normally don't hear that kind of tension from announcer to announcer
