Bruins Win Game 7, Jack Edwards Compares Victory To Boston Tea Party (Video)
The Boston Bruins seemed to be on the verge of blowing yet another Game 7 last night at the TD Gardens. Twelve months ago it was the Flyers erasing a 3-0 series deficit and a 3-0 Game 7 deficit to complete what may very well be the most improbable comeback in NHL history against the Bruins.
Last night it looked to be Deja Vu all over again, as the Bruins took an early 2-0 lead, before allowing the Montreal Canadiens to score the next two goals and tie things up at 2-2. Chris Kelly would score the fifth goal of the game midway through the third period to put the Bruins up 3-2, but a laser from the point off the stick of P.K. Subban with less than two minutes remaining would tie things up at 3-3 and send this game into overtime.
The Bruins had already won two overtime games this series, and Nathan Horton would make it three, as he beat Carey Price with a slap shot 5:43 into the extra frame.
That goal would send the crowd at the TD Garden into a frenzy, and it also had NESN commentator Jack Edwards reminiscing about the events from the Boston Tea Party over 200 years ago.
This is why Jack Edwards will always be one of the worst hockey commentators of all time. Could you imagine a broadcast team that included Edwards in the press box and Pierre McGuire rinkside? I think I just threw up in my mouth.
