'Hockeytown' also enjoys basketball, as it turns out
Ed Olczyk is not as good at guaranteeing stuff as his former teammate, Mark Messier.
The hockey analyst promised on a conference call last week that hockey would out-rate basketball in the Detroit market when the Red Wings and Pistons overlapped.
Not so, at least through the first two games of the Stanley Cup finals.
In fairness, the first two conflicts pitted ABC against Versus and then ESPN against Versus.
Wednesday night will provide a fairer fight: The Red Wings will be on NBC and the Pistons on ESPN.
