Boston Bruins play-by-play man Jack Edwards created a stir on Saturday when he made some controversial comments about Pittsburgh Penguins winger Matt Cooke, when he compared the player to a murderer. Of course, many were upset by the outrageous comments and one man in particular confronted Edwards about his poor choice of words.
Penguins owner general manager Ray Shero was so upset with the comments that he sought out Edwards and let him have it during the first intermission.
Penguins general manager Ray Shero was visibly enraged when he learned of Edwards’ comments and confronted him in the first intermission.
There is no report on what exactly was said between the two men, but you can be sure it wasn’t pretty.
Shortly after the confrontation, Edwards took to Twitter to apologize for his remarks.
I am sorry for insulting Matt Cooke, the Pittsburgh Penguins, the National Hockey League, and anyone else upset by my Cooke comments.

The Bruins and Penguins will likely meet in the postseason, and this time there will be the added drama of GM vs. play-by-play announcer to add to the rivalry.
