NESN Announces Plans for Bruins First-Round Playoff Coverage

April 10, 2012 – NESN, New England’s most watched sports network, will deliver regionally exclusive coverage of up to five games during the Bruins' first-round playoff series against the Washington Capitals that begins Thursday, April 12. NESN will also expand Bruins pre-game coverage to include at least one hour of coverage before every game as well as complete post-game coverage after every game.

NESN’s popular duo of Jack Edwards and Andy Brickley will call every NESN televised playoff game, with Naoko Funayama serving as rink-side reporter. Dale Arnold will host NESN’s studio programs, with Gord Kluzak, Barry Pederson and Mark Mowers providing analysis. NESN’s pre- and post-game coverage for Bruins home games will originate from the network’s TD Garden studio, with coverage of the games in Washington coming from NESN’s studios in Watertown, Mass.
