Another curse slips through in Game 3

It’s been a rough Stanley Cup Finals for the guy holding the

mute button in NBC’s production truck.

On Monday, for the second time in three games, a postgame

interview with sideline reporter Pierre McGuire was marred by an

on-air curse word from a member of the winning team.

In Game 1, it was the Chicago Blackhawks’ Andrew Sharp, who

dropped an exhausted and well-earned — but definitely

inappropriate — F-bomb after his game-winner in triple

overtime (which at least came after 1 a.m. ET, so the kids were

probably asleep):

Then on Monday, after stopping all 28 Blackhawks shots on net to

continue his ridiculous playoff run, Bruins goalie Tuukka Rask

commented on his ability to preserve his third shutout of the

playoffs despite the, uh, “crappy” ice conditions:

I’m not sure how long of a delay NBC and NBC Sports Network use

on their hockey telecasts, but it’s clearly not long enough. Better

bump it up a few more seconds for Game 4 Wednesday, just in

(bleeping) case.
