When the Canadiens visited Winnipeg, two familiar faces were anchoring the game coverage for TSN: John Lu as the host and Dan Robertson as the play-by-play announcer. Until recently, both gentlemen were prominent members of the Montreal broadcast staff for TSN.

TSN reporter John Lu joined Amy Johnson and Rick Stephens to discuss:

  • His homecoming: leaving a dream job in Montreal to take another in Winnipeg.
  • How he is beloved in Montreal by fans and appreciated by members of the Canadiens.
  • His signature Montreal wardrobe and if there will be changes?
  • About Joel Edmundson's return to the lineup playing in front of family and friends.
  • And will Pierre-Luc Dubois' future be in Winnipeg or Montreal?

It was an exclusive, comprehensive interview with one of this country's foremost sports reporters who has covered the Montreal Canadiens for the past 15 years.
