Sending out best wishes to my friend and fellow PXPer Sean McDonough who premiers as the lead NHL announcer tonight on @espn
. Sean’s a guy I’ve always respected as a talent that’s versatility is unchallenged. Young talent coming up should always pay close attention when he’s on🎙
I might be in the minority, but I don't think Sean McDonough is the right fit for hockey
“People will look at the score tomorrow and think ‘Who needs Malkin or Crosby, they scored six goals!!’” — Sean McDonough, ESPN #LetsGoPens
Put Sean McDonough on baseball where he is the very best to replace Matt Vasgersian and bring back Gary Thorne https://t.co/VgLmW3nsD6
Sean McDonough and Ray Ferraro together is a home run for the NHL sounding like it matters again.
good volume on the goal horn for the ESPN telecast....but Sean McDonough needs to learn to bow out when that horn goes off.
Also noticing a different energy level from Sean McDonough to John Buccigross. BucciMane is matching the crowd level in Vegas. Sean needs to add some energy. It was his first NHL game in years so I’ll give him some more time.
Sean McDonough needs to figure out a goal call. Sounds like it takes him by surprise every time
I’ll say it: emily kaplan is horrific. sean mcdonough stinks. ferraro is a studio guy. intro song still fucks but this broadcast is ruining the sport.
Sean McDonough when somebody scores a goal in a hockey game
John Buccigross has already proven himself a considerably better PxP guy for hockey than Sean McDonough. Not even 3 minutes in. Hope @espn
SteveLevy Can we just acknowledge right now how good Sean McDonough is on the play by play? Well done @espn @NHL
Sean McDonough show emotion while calling the game challenge

it’s not even close… #NHLonESPN
Sean McDonough was DREADFULLY boring calling the Lightning Penguins game. He even tanked the energy of Ray Ferraro (who's usually quite good). John Buccigross is absolutely crushing the VGK Kraken game. He's outstanding. High energy. Brian Boucher and AJ Mleczko are solid https://t.co/YIL0GLVvHw
Sean McDonough is a superb talent and excels in every sport behind the mic. Loved every second of tonight’s @ESPN broadcast of the NHL. 😃 https://t.co/fsDf0Etr4t
In case folks forgot how good Gary Thorne was on the call for #NHLonESPN check out this link, https://t.co/704JYeQsCm
Cause Sean McDonough is 💤
What a chien of a hockey game for an ESPN opener. And Sean McDonough on p by p....zzzzzz.
I don’t think Sean McDonough was bad, but John Buccigross should absolutely be the No. 1 NHL play-by-play guy for ESPN.
Absolutely brutal first game, apart from Levy, Messier and Chelios. This VGK-Kraken game feels like an event with action and playoff intensity, plus Bucci is fun to listen to.
ESPN needs to ditch Sean McDonough and call Gary Thorne ASAP! I had to mute it and listen to a podcast.
It doesn’t have Sean McDonough which is a huge improvement
Ok I like Sean McDonough doing hockey games. I didn’t like him doing football but his hockey coverage works for me. And Chelios and Messier and Steve Levy at the desk??? Yes, please! No one is as pretty as Patrick Sharp but I like it.
Sean McDonough calling hockey is beautiful
