Missed this one the other day, since we were wrapped up watching the near riot that broke out outside the Ace Ticket Studios on Causeway Street after the Bruins won Game 7 in OT against the Maple Leafs.

Comcast Sports Net New England pre-and-post-game hosts Michael Felger and Tony Amonte were in studio watching the action on TV along with the rest of us. But the Comcast cameras were watching them.

Felger's on-camera reaction to both the game-tying and winning goals from the 5-4 win over the Leafs should provide plenty of fodder for the callers to his "Felger and Mazz" show on 98.5 The Sports Hub. But remember, there's no rule against cheering in the studio, in the broadcast booth or home on the couch, just inside the press box. Felger may have been the only one watching the game on TV who didn't celebrate with a few profane words directed toward the Maple Leafs.

Meanwhile, Amonte, who later dropped an "F-Bomb" during the post-game glass-pounding mayhem, remains calm while taking notes. The folks at Comcast managed to get some reinforcements stationed outside the studio window after Boston's victories over the Rangers Thursday and Sunday. Too bad.

Felger's reactionary clip was shown during this week's CSNNE "Sports Sunday" telecast.

While Felger showed some major Black and Gold fan-blood after Game 7, his reaction was not nearly as intense as the one delivered by Jack Edwards during the NESN telecast.

Felger showed some agility with his ability to jump off the chair while Edwards get major style points for sticking the dagger and "killing the beast."

Too bad neither had their face painted.

Don and Jerry, you're up next.
