We all know -- at least in the state of Massachusetts -- that Patriots Day is a tradition every third Monday in April. We also know that school children get that day off -- at the K-12 level the whole week -- while the Red Sox always have a game in the late morning and of course, who can forget about the annual Boston Marathon.
Well, the last few years the Bruins have played on Patriots Day as well. Is it a co-incidence? I won't go into that, but you can make that judgement for yourself.
In 2008, the Bruins lost to their arch-rivals, the Montreal Canadiens, 5-0 in Game 7 on Patriots Day and Habs Fans went on to riot after their first round victory. One year later, the Bruins won 4-2 in Game 3 against the Canadiens in Montreal.
And of course, Jack Edwards had to add a Revolutionary War reference.
In case you need to be reminded -- or if you haven't seen the infamous call yet -- here is the clip of the "History Lesson" from Professor Edwards:
Will Edwards have another hyperbole up his sleeve if the Bruins get a win in Game 3 of their series with the Sabres tomorrow night? Only time will tell.
And this has been another "Great Moment" in Bell Centre History.
