The Boston Bruins put together an incredible comeback Tuesday night versus the New York Rangers, clawing their way back from down 3-0 in the final 10 minutes to force the game into overtime. The final two goals were both scored with the goalie pulled, the last within the final minute.
It was very exciting stuff for fans of the Boston Bruins, and NESN announcer Jack Edwards is definitely that. Brad Marchand's game-tying goal had him jumping down in the booth. Watch the whole, dizzying sequence in this clip, or just catch Edwards' giddy bunny hops at 3:15:
"And the Bruins! Showing hearts of lions! Have tied it 3-3!"
Say what you will about Edwards. The man's way with words is legendary.
Especially when it comes to Boston, whom some have suggested he prefers over all others. Yes, Edwards has been called a homer in the past, and this clip (featured here in GIF form) probably isn't going to reinforce his impartiality.
That said, Edwards addressed it on the broadcast just moments after his happy dance. "Oh, he's such a homah. He's such a homah," he joked in a thick, Bostonian accent, before responding. "Get over it. You go to hockey games to get excited."
Fair point. This was pretty exciting.
