Henry couldn't lock him out and use his reach. Thornton really connected when he switched hands. I gotta say...I like homers, but more like Remy and Orsillo. If they're funny and will crack on their guys too then it's OK...but the "goon' reference and the prison stripes remark are over the top. Obviously he's gotten the green-light to act like this because it's been an issue for a while.
Let's review the fight first- Win Thornton. he did a great job of keeping Henry at bay and connected with some good shots, a very smart fight by Thorny.
I had the English feed for the Habs and those guys did a very good job calling the game so this is the first I've heard of the imbecile Jack Edwards call.
"The goon from Hamilton?" "Can't do anything with a stick in his hand"? "Prison Stripes"?? WTF???!!!
This guy should never be allowed to sit in front of a mic again. That is so bad, it's not even funny, even if you thought it was funny. How do you think Alex Henry feels when he hears shyt like that? And they say being a pro sports player is easy? What a total douche bag, just when you thought he couldn't get any worse. he should be castrated and then have his toungue torn out and that's after a letter and on air apology.
Was looking forward to this post . First, win to Thorton, dont believe Henry landed a punch, possibly one, but that's it. Regarding the uniforms, there are some things in history that should remain history, these fit the bill. No disrespect to the Habs on this one but the uniform should have remained in the closet. Regarding Jack Edwards, I didnt think it was possible to get worse but indeed it did. For those imbeciles that think us "homers" are swayed by his play by play, you obviously dont read what we've been posting here. One can only hope he wont be back next year. He knows little about the game and to say his play by play is annoying would be an understatement. And yes, last but not least, ....mcb.....you scribble,"the habs will still beat the bruins in the playoffs if they meet.".....Here's the problem, the habs are looking like they may not make the playoffs! They should try and concentrate on playing the game instead of taking dives to draw penalties.
the habs call up henry to take care of business? are you kidding me?? canadiens100 where are you?? not only did henry get beat by thonton,but he also got out muscled by him and scored the winninng goal!! OLE!! OLE!! HABS... FORGET ABOUT FIGHTING ,,YOU GUYS ARE TERRIBLE.. THE GROIN IS STILL SOAKING IN THE TUB!! MR. GAINEY,, YOU RE DECISIONS THIS YEAR HAVE REALLY HURT YOUR CLUB,,RYDER IS GREAT FOR US,, THEN YOU CALL UP HENRY,,, CMON ,,OLE!! OLE!! AND THE PRISON UNIFORMS LOOKED AS RIDICULOUS AS THE PLAYERS WERE..OLE!! OLE!!
That Jack Edwards guy could NOT give an unbiased play-by-play of a chess match between two friggen monkeys. I agree, every team has a homer announcer, BUT, this guy is the worst... and I have listened to a bazillion games in my lifetime! Bias is one thing, but totally annoying, while being biased is another...Jack...you gotta go ! I am even embarrassed for the Boston fans!
Too bad the reffs were not wired with a mic during the scraps.
Both guys did what they had to do. Win some - loose some. Win Thornton.
I swear, those God damn boston announcers are the worst! Everytime there is a boston fight at home I have to turn the sound off. Try it sometime, and you will see a different fight then what they are calling! DRAW all the way.
So are the Bruins retaining Edwards in a buildup to a commercial selling tickets? "Come to the game and you don't have to hear this!" *Cue montage of Edwards' most ridiculous calls, preferably including the phrase "over and under" 17 times in a row.*
