Rangers vs. Flyers Game 2 announcers will be slightly biased

Might as well put this kid in the broadcast booth. - Paul Bereswill

Hope you're ready to listen to Rangers announcers during Game 2!

SB Nation 2014 NHL Playoff Bracket

I'm typically not one to complain about announcers or NBC being biased against the Flyers or anything, but this is a little ridiculous.

Who are Kenny Albert and Joe Micheletti, you ask? Here are some screenshots from the New York Rangers 2013-14 media guide!

I think Kenny Albert does a pretty good job with just about everything he does, but there's just a natural bias that comes with covering a team for 18 years. It can be hard to shed, even if he's trying. He shouldn't be calling a Flyers-Rangers game in the playoffs on national TV, especially when that will be the only broadcast of said game in the United States. Put him on a different game.

Micheletti shouldn't touch this game with a 10 foot pole. Here's one pretty egregious example of his Rangers bias. I'm sure there are plenty of others.

I'm fine with Albert and Micheletti calling playoff games for NBC and NBCSN, but these guys are part of the Rangers organization. They shouldn't be calling a Rangers playoff game on national television.

Oh, and for the record: Game 2 and Game 4 of this series are not available on CSN, so we're forced to listen to these guys.
