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.
