All it takes is one phrase to get hooked on hockey.

"He shoots, he scores!"

If that phrase comes from the mouth of Mike Emrick, that is.

The NHL is back for a jam-packed 2013 season, and—perhaps, best of all—Emrick and NBC's traditional Sunday afternoon national broadcasts are back, too.

From Original Six showdowns to Original Six showdowns, your weekend's final afternoon will be fully occupied from now until at least the end of April.

Bring on the East Coast bias. Bring on the same matchups over and over. Bring on the hours of far too in-depth Sidney Crosby coverage.

Thank you, NBC.

Bring on the hockey.
