Is there anything more exciting than watching overtime in the Stanley Cup Final? The thrill of teams trading chances knowing full-well that the next goal wins…there’s nothing like it.
Overtime goals also provide play-by-play voices with the perfect opportunity to show off some crazy goal calls.
If you were watching the game in English last night (like I was), you may have missed the Finnish call of Joonas Donskoi‘s overtime goal.
If you didn’t catch it, it’s definitely worth a listen (top).
I don’t understand a word of what the announcer is saying, but you have to appreciate the passion behind the call. The fact that Donskoi is from Finland obviously adds to the drama.
