Audio of Nicklas Backstrom’s overtime game winner


(Jonathan Newton/WASHINGTON POST)

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.
