Carolina newscaster hilariously pretends that the Hurricanes’ collapse to the Bruins didn’t happen

“at that point Boston cried out to the heavens in great fruitless anguish …”

It’s not easy to have a sense of humor after a crushing loss, but kudos to Mark Armstrong of ABC11 in Raleigh for being a super homer after the Carolina Hurricanes collapse against the Bruins.

You’d mistake the homer-filled recap of the game as being an easy Hurricanes win, not a five goal rout in the third period that gave Boston a 6-4 lead — and that was the point. Armstrong wanted to bring a little levity after a rough night for the Canes, where he invoked peerless imagery and even Genghis Khan before closing on an important note.

“It’s Elias Lindholm, watch this upcoming, stampeding over the plains like Gengis Khan through Eurasia. Momentarily repelled before Brock McGinn’s second wave would win the day, and at that point Boston cried out to the heavens in great fruitless anguish …

the B’s scored five straight in the third to win 6-4.”

You’ve got to appreciate the loyalty to the bit. This is just great.
