Devil Town: A Return to Saturday (VIDEO)

Hockey Night in Canada returns tonight – October 11, 2014 – but it's a little different now. This is an ode to Tim Thompson and Bob Cole.

This isn’t a real ‘Hockey Night in Canada’ montage, but it’s of course inspired by the magical music videos the CBC’s wunder-editor Tim Thompson puts together every Saturday.

And it’s made to celebrate the 60-plus years of HNIC, from the commentary of Bob Cole to the elegantly simple coverage from Canada’s public broadcaster.

You don’t have to love the CBC, and you may even hate it, but let’s just take a moment to admit that it and its hockey broadcasts are a huge part of our history, our cultural heritage, and whatever hockey super-channel Rogers forms from now on will always be measured against it.
