The games themselves have the commercials, intermissions and a lot of the stoppage time edited out. The Eastern Conference Final between the New Jersey Devils and the New York Rangers has the ESPN feed for most games with the annoying Gary "He did it! He did it!" Thorne, Bill Clement and Al Morganti as the broadcast crew. Game 1 is the ESPN2 broadcast with Sean McDonough, Brian Engblom and Morganti while Game 5 is the CBC crew of Chris Cuthbert, Dick Irvin and John Garrett. Pic quality is superb bar Game 7 in bits where it wavers. Although this is a very dramatic series, NJ suck the life out of many games and the OTs in many of the games are, frankly, dull hockey.
The Final is a far superior brand of hockey thanks to both Canuck coach Pat Quinn and Ranger coach Mike Keenan having teams that attack and do not play the trap.Read more ›
It's funny because if the Canucks had prevailed in Game 7, the DVD set would have been called "Canucks 1994." That is how close the series was.
Most of the games are from American broadcasts. I found this refreshing as I am so used to watching games featuring Canadian boadcasters. John Davidson provides colour in most of the games and he is as knowledgeable as he is interesting.
I recommend this set for any NHL fan. It won't take long for you to get into both series. Although I purchased my set from another seller for less than $30, the price Amazon is selling it for is very good. For the price, you get 14 games plus an hour-long bonus that pays tribute to the '94 Rangers.
