The internet kept on giving in the wake of the Bruins gigantic and historic 5-4 overtime victory over the Toronto Maple Leafs.

NESN posted this You Tube video showing Jack Edwards delivering his call of Patrice Bergeron's OT goal.

It comes complete with Edwards bringing home his point with several deep, thrusting and stabbing motions as he describes the Bruins comeback thusly: "With the point of the dagger at their throats, they rip it out of Toronto's hands and kill the beast."

Analyst Andy Brickley gets some major cool points for being the perfect straight man, and avoiding bodily injury.

All this coming in the wake of the "f-bomb", glass-pounding mayhem on the Michael Felger/Tony Amonte Comcast Sports New England post-game show Monday night means it time for everyone to get cable or DirecTV for the rest of the playoffs.

The Edwards clip may be the best 34 seconds of nudity-free internet ever, although Edwards did tell the OBF blog via Twitter that he was "actually naked in this video. Just wearing REALLY GOOD body paint."

We'll happily take his word for it.

There were more Bruins-based gifts from the Interwebs on Tuesday:

A photo collage of the Bruins' post-game celebration and the Boston Globe photo of the three Boston Police officers charging post-Marathon bombing was making the rounds.

Perfect, especially in light of what appeared in this space in the wee hours after the Bruins' win.

Boston.jpg"[The Bruins win] came four weeks to the day of the Boston Marathon bombings. In just 28 days, Boston has transformed from a city in stunned shock, pain and horror into a city that literally overnight has fallen back in love back its hockey team.

Something special happened in this game. Something that has to carry past this series and beyond the New York Rangers in the next round. The Celtics were never really in it this postseason. They were lost in the post-Marathon sports shuffle. But the Bruins have been there front-and-center since evil crossed the finish line at 4:09 of the Boston Marathon.

Those same Bruins, who carried the burden of being the first team back in action in Boston after the bombings, found sudden life in sudden death.

Toronto Stronger? Like hell it is.

"It was dead out there," said Rask, who played so solid and consistent throughout this season that Tim Thomas was going to apply for joint citizenship in the United States, Glen Beckistan and Finland in honor of his replacement's performance. "It's do or die. You have to make a save. You're either a hero or an a--hole," he added.

We'll go with "hero."

No, hockey players aren't heroes like policemen, soldiers and medical personnel. But they sure as hell made us feel good on Monday night.

Just like Edwards.

Tonight, it's off to Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Fla., to catch the Red Sox. I'll be the guy wearing the Bruins hat.
