A Hit from Behind on Randy Jones! How Hilarious!
Bruins play-by-play announcer Jack Edwards, to those who live outside of New England, is known for being a bit of a homer when it comes to the Bruins. But it seems that with this video, he is being treated a little unfairly. Upon looking at just this clip without the proper context, the viewer may think Edwards is an ass for bellowing such a Skeletor laugh at the Philadelphia crowd’s displeasure over Milan Lucic’s hit on Randy Jones. Admittedly, he is about one thunder and lightning strike away from sounding like pure evil.
But in all seriousness, the real reason Edwards is laughing is because it was Jones who charged and hit Bruins forward Patrice Bergeron from behind back in October of 2007, ending his season and almost his career. Bergeron suffered a concussion and broken collarbone from the hit and has yet to really recover, and Jones got himself a 2-game suspension. That’s why Edwards says “How’s this for irony?” after the Lucic hit.
For those of you who don’t know about the Bergeron hit, watch it here (the first replay is about 52 seconds in):
