John Walton likely wasn’t the only one screaming when Nicklas Backstrom lifted the Caps past the Bruins with that double-overtime goal Saturday afternoon.
But Walton’s audio outburst is perhaps the easiest to find. Plus, he didn’t curse at all, which many of the screamers likely did. Here’s how he began:
“Backstrom, left circle, HE SCOOOOOOORRRES!!!!!!! HE SCOOOOOOOORRRES!!!!!! BACKSTROM. GAME WINNER!!! GOOD MORNING, GOOD AFTERNOON, AND GOOD!!!!! NIGHT!!!!!! BOSTON!!!!!!”
Walton later tweeted that SportsCenter had requested the audio, and a reader tells me it was the top highlight on that show’s Top 10. Hope they had their finger on the volume control. Audio is below, via Capitals Voice.
