Julian Edelman, like sports fans throughout New England, is excited for the Boston Bruins to start their second round Stanley Cup Playoff series versus the Tampa Bay Lightning.

The Patriots wide receiver spoke to the media after Sunday's training camp practice at Gillette Stadium, and he did it wearing his own custom "Edelman" Bruins jersey. 

Check it out in the video below:

The Bruins will play the Lightning in Game 1 on Sunday night at 8 p.m. ET on NBC Sports Network. It should be a fantastic series between arguably the two best teams in the NHL.

Edelman has been a strong supporter of the other Boston pro sports teams throughout his tenure with the Patriots. He's also showed up to a few Bruins playoff games, and even served as the fan banner captain for the B's Game 7 win over the Toronto Maple Leafs last year.
