During this period, Hockey Night in Canada studio shows were still originate on-site. Ward Cornell hosted the show in Toronto until 1972 when Dave Hodge replaced him as the host there. Howie Meeker was the analyst, and Bob Goldham provided highlights between periods. From 1971 to 1976, Dave Reynolds and Mike Anscombe hosted the show at the Montreal Forum. Beginning in 1977, Dick Irvin Jr. hosted the telecast and The Fisher Report at the Forum in Montreal with newspaper columnist Red Fisher. In the 1975, 1976, and 1979, Bill Good and later Steve Armitage hosted the Vancouver Canucks games. Brian McFarlane presented the Peter Puck and Showdown with Howie Meeker. These intermission features provided emphasis for each regional telecast.
