The Calgary Flames are heading home down 0-2, and everyone obviously needs to play better for them to get back into their first-round Stanley Cup playoff series against the Anaheim Ducks.
That’s especially true of defenseman Dougie Hamilton, who has been a relative non-factor in the first two games. Well, he has been a relative non-factor in doing good things for Calgary.
Hamilton already has eight penalty minutes through the first two games, with two of his four minor penalties leading to Ducks power-play goals.
Things now are especially awkward after the Flames TV crew was caught on an open microphone ripping into the former Boston Bruin with a profanity-laced rant.
“Does he have a (expletive) brain?” someone can be heard saying.
“He doesn’t. He’s stupid as (expletive),” another voice responds.
The entire clip, which includes plenty of profanity, can be heard here.
It’s unclear who’s exactly speaking, though. Awful Announcing did a thorough breakdown, which wasn’t able to produce a definitive answer while also seeming to get the main Sportsnet announcers off the hook.
