Bruins announcers put on ice by NHL lockout

It’s a unique, delay-of-game dilemma caused by the second incomprehensible NHL lockout in a decade. While Bruins players scatter around the globe to keep their skates and skills sharp during the latest NHL labor mess, what becomes of the play-by-play broadcasters left behind who suddenly have no play-by-play to call?

It’s not as if Jack Edwards, NESN’s enthusiastic if polarizing Bruins announcer, can follow Andrew Ference to the Czech Republic to call his games. And Dave Goucher, the unsung, excellent voice of the franchise’s games on 98.5 The Sports Hub, isn’t following Tyler Seguin to Switzerland, though amid the helplessness of the situation he can’t resist joking about doing just that.
