From NESN this afternoon:

NESN, New England’s most watched sports network, will premiere The Instigators on Thursday, December 4th at 6:00 pm. This first of its kind Original NESN Entertainment (ONE) production will feature Bruins’ studio analyst Mike Milbury, color analyst Andy Brickley and play-by-play announcer Jack Edwards as “The Instigators”, debating the hottest and most controversial national hockey topics every Thursday night.

“This is a breakthrough show for hockey fans and an opportunity to expand our commitment to the coverage of the sport,” said Joel Feld, NESN’s executive vice president of programming and executive producer. “Mike, Andy and Jack are nationally respected hockey minds, and with The Instigators we are giving them an exciting new forum in a weekly half hour format to voice their opinions on the NHL.”

The Instigators, which will air every Thursday at 6:00 PM and 10:30 PM, is shot on a NESN-designed virtual set. Unlike traditional regional sports network programs, The Instigators will tackle national topics like hirings and firings, rules controversies, surprise teams, and favorite NHL tough guys and personalities. With the premiere of The Instigators, NESN now has two weekly Original NESN Entertainment programs on its schedule that are dedicated to hockey in support of its Bruins game-day coverage.

  1. The Instigators??…..hasn’t there already been a Patriots version of this? except it’s called, “a Felger column”…a Ron Borges column, a John Tomase column, a Hector Longo column….etc…etc..etc..

    1. Good one AOB. If you put those donkeys in a sealed room, told them if they didn’t talk, they’d have enough oxygen to escape, they’d still die from asphyxiation.

  2. Finally! A media outlet is finally allowing opinion to be voiced about sports…or at least hockey…which is sort of like sports…

  3. I like the idea of The Instigators. I’ll definitely tune into it. However, NESN should get rid of The Buzz, and bring back Bruins All Axcess featuring the two hotties Jillian Nathan and Kelly Barrons. I enjoyed that show!

  4. Milbury is must hear television…..he is very good at this & in a few years….ESPN will be calling. As good as he is at this he was bad as a GM. Sorry, just being honest & i will enjoy this show with Brickley’s well worded opionions and Edwards cheerleading!

  5. i just want to start off and say that Jack Edwards your so wrong with our goalie controversy i'm sorry but Tuka is the number one goalie i don't care what his numbers say he is so much better and fundamentally sound than thomas if thomas was on any other team he'd be getting lit up but the bruins play suck great team defense every shot thomas sees he's supposed to stop the guy can't skate he's always on his ass or his back he falls down and makes a save and is automatically great i don't understand that the bruins have to stick with tuka every game he's started he's gotten the shaft i've never liked thomas i think he's a good back up goalie if not down in the minors the guy can't skate as a goalie and its gonna catch up to him mark my words and its good to see the great composure he has to stay confident most young goalies would falter after having a great season last year then getting the shaft this year cause the team can't play well in front of him or score any goals for him besides tonight this was a great game tonight to prove who our true number one goalie is

    1. Chuck, I don't mean to be the grammar police but you need to use some punctuation. Your post is impossible to read.
