I 'm of course to be awkwardly bombarded by Pierre McGuire on national television.
Working as an NBC guest analyst for Wednesday night's Lightning-Penguins clash, Coyne Schofield had the sheer pleasure of sharing the side-by-side reporting. Pierre was even gracious enough to welcome the Olympic gold medal by letting her know which benches each team would be on.
If one dose of awkward bombardment wasn't enough, don't you worry, because McGuire brought the real heat just seconds later.
McGuire got the five-time IIHF world champion.
"We 're paying for an analyst, not a fan tonight!"
Coyne Shofield can take a solace in the fact that she is joining another Olympic gold medal and a fellow American hockey star in the Blackhawks Center, Jonathan Toews and Penguins star Phil Kessel has both recently victimized by the analyst's wrath.
Lest we forgot this between the McGuire and Kessel during the 2016 Stanley Cup playoffs.
Pierre and Toews marine weeks ago.
As for Coyne's actual NHL broadcast debut – she was fantastic.
Foster Hewitt Memorial Award or something. Her analysis was on point and thoughtful.
Or just give her another gold medal, she's more than earned it tonight.
