It's times like these that not only give Versus a bad name, but the NHL as well.
As a critical playoff game was decided in double overtime in Boston, the announcer called the goal scorer's name, then proclaimed the Canadiens had won the game and taken a 3-2 series lead.
Only problem: the exact opposite happened. Nathan Horton's dramatic goal lifted Boston to a 3-2 series lead, not Montreal.
The high-profile gaffe couldn't have happened at a more important juncture in the series, as it was knotted 2-2 and the game itself was locked 1-1. The overtime call was sure to confuse more casual fans, and for others listening, it was just downright embarrassing.
Listen for yourself... The call is clearly: "And the Canadiens now lead it three games to two!" Oops.
