The NHL series has put out some great, and terribly underrated, sports games over the years, but things really haven't been the same ever since color commentator, Daryl Reaugh, left the game after NHL 99. With hilarious, unforgettable phrases like, "It's a road kill cafe!" or "Here comes the freight train...WOO! WOO!," Reaugh helped to create a sports title that had all the finesse gameplay of a Madden with the cult appeal of Blitz. On a night when you strike out on getting with that girl in your Anthro class, drown your sorrows in NHL 99.
