Breaking news: Doc's illness nixes Winter Classic call

NBC has announced Doc Emrick will miss Thursday's Winter Classic in Chicago because of laryngitis and be replaced by the Coyotes' play-by-play man, Dave Strader.

"Last year's game was a lifetime memory and I couldn't wait to call this year's game at Wrigley," Emrick said in a news release. "I'm extremely disappointed but I know Dave will do a wonderful job."
