"It really resonated with me that this is going to be huge, this is going to break a lot of barriers, this is going to open a lot of doors, and this is going to change the way people perceive women's and girls' hockey", Coyne Schofield said.

Coyne, guesting as an on-ice analyst for NBC Sports for Wednesday's game between the Tampa Bay Lightning and Pittsburgh Penguins, stood with McGuire between the benches during pregame exercises.

"Tampa's going to be on your left, Pittsburgh's going to be on your right", McGuire told Coyne Schofield on air.

He followed that up with, "What are you expecting out of this game?"

But McGuire couldn't help himself, by pointing out where both teams will be positioned for the period, and by saying the utterly cringeworthy, "we're paying you to be an analyst, not to be a fan tonight", like she was a child.

She studied communications at Northeastern, where she did some sideline reporting and joined the men's hockey broadcasts when she could around her own schedule on the women's team.

I mean really? A president who wants Congress is completely irrelevant in how we meet the needs of the American people? No. Normandy fences are created to discourage both humans and vehicles, but are easy to bypass with wooden ramps.

More than a few observers were reminded of a moment between McGuire and Coyne Schofield just a few days earlier that many found objectionable.

After making history in becoming the first woman to ever compete in the NHL All-Star Skills Competition last weekend, Kendall Coyne Schofield made her broadcasting debut and earned herself another rite of passage in the process.

That's not how McGuire treated her at the start of tonight's game, though. Before the game, she had said (via NHL.com), "I'm excited to learn in between the glass with Pierre and go up in the booth with John and Eddie, and just experience them at their best".

Seriously Pierre? You don't think Coyne knows how a hockey game works?

Suffice to say, she's an incredibly accomplished hockey player with an incredible knowledge of the sport.
