Jack Edwards call of the week: Week 1

Jack Edwards call of the week: Week 1

Since coming to NESN for the 2005-06 season, Jack Edwards has become a beloved figure in The Hub of Hockey.

When the Bruins drop the gloves against any one of their opponents, Jack Edwards is there for it all. When the Bruins face off against their hated rivals like the Montreal Canadiens and Philadelphia Flyers, Jack Edwards is there for it all. When there’s moments of irony, Jack Edwards is there for it all. And when it’s time to recall the battles of the Revolutionary War, well, Jack Edwards is there for it all.

This got us thinking here at Bruins Daily for the 2013-14 season. How can we give more exposure to the current “voice” of the Boston Bruins? Well, we came up with a simple solution: the “Jack Edwards call of the week.”

Each week we’ll share our favorite call from Edwards and bring up some honorable mentions as well. If you think we missed a few calls, then don’t fear. You can send us a tweet @BruinsDaily and comment on here and on our Facebook page.

Without further adieu, let’s get straight to this week’s call.

Jack Edwards Call of the Week

With Tim Thomas starting against his former team last Thursday night in South Florida, many expected that Edwards would have something up his sleeve. Well, he did when he robbed Jarome Iginla on the doorstep during the third period of the Bruins’ 3-2 win over the Panthers.

Here’s the clip of Edwards’ call (via dafoomie) along with a tweet from @jackedwardssays.

    Do people really love Jack Edwards? I know I don’t. Granted I got spoiled growing up listening to Fred Cusick, but I cringe when JE makes some of his ridiculously bad comments.Its gotten so bad that I often listen to the opposing teams feed just to spare myself the aggravation of desperately wanting to choke the crap out of Edwards. Boston fans deserve better.
    PS Love you Andy Brickley!
