Must Watch: Cuthbert/Ferraro at Center Ice Tonight for Habs/Sabres

It’s been done before, and they’ll do it again.  Play-by-play man Chris Cuthbert and analyst Ray Ferraro are broadcasting the Habs-Sabres game live from between the benches… both of them.  Check it out if you have the chance.

NESN Has Technical Snafu That Punishes Us with Jack Edwards Going Solo

Jack Edwards and Andy Brickley

Thanks to Fang’s Bites for this info:

During tonight’s Philadelphia Flyers-Boston Bruins game at TD Banknorth Garden, NESN started having audio difficulties. They began late in the second period when Andy Brickley’s microphone died in the middle of a replay. Jack Edwards had to go solo for a time, when NESN’s engineers gave both men regular stick microphones instead of their headset mics that you often see.

While the second intermission was ongoing, NESN tried to fix the problems, but could not. At the beginning of the third period, studio analysts Barry Pederson and Mike Milbury along with host Kathyrn Tappen were seen (luckily, NESN has their studio crew live from the Garden for home games). They explained that Barry and Mike would do the play-by-play and color as Jack and Andy were heading to their broadcast position behind one of the goal’s. Luckily, this lasted for just 13 seconds when we heard Jack & Brick coming in, but they were uncomfortable from a new vantage point.

Please Lord, let there be a video of this madness.  Good work, Ken for covering it.
