With five games in the last two weeks, Bruins fans got to hear plenty of Jack Edwards. To no surprise, the NESN play by play man did not disappoint.
He began the slate with some good gems against the Tampa Bay Lightning, and closed things out with some nice calls against the New York Rangers, including an oldie but goodie at the end. But it was this call at the end of a five-game homestand last Thursday night against the Columbus Blue Jackets that took the cake.
Milan Lucic ended the homestand on a high note with the game-winner against the Columbus Blue Jackets. And here, we let Jack do the rest of the honors.
Here is the best of the rest, including an oldie but goodie.

Derek Dorsett might need to pay up after several trip to the penalty box last night:
Even the best announcers flub sometimes. After all, they are trying to pronounce some tough hockey names:
Flubs aside, Edwards noticed that Madison Square Garden was pretty quiet after Daniel Paille scored a shorthanded goal to make it 2-0 Bruins in the second period. Quieter than say, oh, the New York Public Library:
“The only quieter place in New York City is the public library” -Jack Edwards

Milan Lucic not only scores goals, but he runs skaters down in their tracks:

But at the end of the day, Jack just needs to take a breath or three:
“Maybe I’m hallucinating!” says Jack Edwards, and we all say, “Yeah, you could be.” #Bruins

That is all for this week. Tune in in two weeks when I’m sure Jack Edwards will have an opportunity to give thanks in the next edition of the Jack Edwards Call of the Week.
