Cangialosi and Chico Butcher the Matteau Call

I’ve been waiting for Stefan Matteau to score his first goal to see how Steve Cangialosi and Chico would call it, and tonight I finally got my answer:

Unfortunately it left me with a bad taste left in my mouth.

After listening to that butchering of one of Howie Rose’s most infamous calls I kind of wish they would have avoided the reference all together. You can see they both thought about making “the call”, but neither one committed to it.  I mean hello, it is three Matteau’s not two. My momma always said don’t do something if you ain’t gonna do it right. She also said Chico is the devil, but that is a whole other story…

In case you forgot, the Devils drafted Matteau one pick after the Rangers selected Brady Skjei in last year’s draft.

To erase this memory we will have Howie show us how to make the call.
