Jeremy Roenick stops by the studio to talk hockey, pop the Danettes
NBC NHL analyst Jeremy Roenick stopped by the studio to hang out and talk about the playoffs and more.
— Roenick was talking about how there used to be beer in the locker room in the late 1980s, early ’90s. Dan asked if he ever drank beer during a game. “I did in the All-star Game in Toronto between periods,” Roenick said. He said he drank four or five, and no one else would join him.
And one time he had beers at a sports bar before a game because they said there was going to be a strike that day back in 1992. Roenick said he played on “guilt and fear” and scored a goal in a 3-3 tie.
— Roenick showed Dan some hockey moves. “I think the first time you get into a fight in the NHL it freaks you out so much, you have to learn what to do with your hands,” Roenick said. He said that you have to learn to hold a jersey because that’s a must in hockey.
Dan asked who he remembers fighting. He said he fought Bob Probert twice and regretted it. He also said he nailed Marty McSorley once and gloated. That was a big mistake. McSorley got him right back.
— Roenick said the hockey is as good as he’s ever seen in the playoffs. He thinks the Bruins will come out of the East. And he thinks San Jose has looked dominant in the West.
