This is the thread for the 1980 Stanley Cup TV crews, where the
division standings didn't mean a thing. It was a straight league-wide
standing that determined the playoff opponents.

Please alert with errors or omissions. It is appreciated.

Note: On 4/9, CBC carried the ACTRA awards ceremony. This caused the
HAR-MTL and EDM-PHI games not to be televised. The TOR-MIN game was
shifted to CHCH in Hamilton (B. Hewitt-McFarlane) while the VAN-BUF
was televised by CBC regionally in BC as usual as the ACTRA awards
show was tape-delayed into prime time on the west coast.

Flyers-Islanders
Game 1, 5/13, CBC. Bob Cole (1st half), Dan Kelly (2nd half and OT),
Gary Dornhoefer, Dick Irvin
Game 2, 5/15, CBC. Bob Cole (1st half), Dan Kelly (2nd half), Gary

Dornhoefer, Dick Irvin
Game 5, 5/22, CBC. Bob Cole (1st half), Dan Kelly (2nd half), Gary
Dornhoefer, Dick Irvin
Game 6, 5/24, CBC. Jim Robson, Gary Dornhoefer, Dick Irvin

Notes:
1st half and 2nd half?! For the first five games of the final, either
Cole or Robson would do pxp for the first period and the first half of
the second period. At the closest stoppage of play near the 10 minute
mark of the second period, Cole or Robson would hand off the call to
Dan Kelly for the duration of the game.

The 1980 Final woud be the first of 29 consecutive Stnaley Cup Finals
that Bob Cole would have a hand in calling for CBC television.
