It's tough to pick the best story to come out of Red Wing's championship season (4th in 11 years, by the way). One of the best from last night came from off the ice.
Long-time radio voice of the Detroit Red Wings Ken Kalczynski ("Ken Kal") was a scratch for last night's game 6 Stanley Cup clincher. Laryngitis, on the night of the biggest game of the past 6 years. Even though he doesn't wear the jersey, he's part of the team.
Ken Daniels rode the mic instead. Nothing against Ken Daniels, but it wasn't the same, especially for the final championship game. So with 10 seconds left in the 3rd period, Daniels pulled a classy move when he turned the controls over to Ken Kal, and as a result likely gave up a once-in-a-lifetime chance to call the final game of a professional championship series. Take a listen as Ken Kal brings it home.
