I am not braving the weather to get to Wilmo before the charter flight, so here goes nothing:
I have never met someone so universally loved as John "Chief" Bucyk. Period.
The TD Banknorth Garden was done up to the 9th floor, with little details like bottles of wine in the premium spaces with #9 on them, to Johnny’s hockey cards on the video boards, to the figurines that were given out and the "I (heart) Chief" posters -- it was just a great night. Nobody deserves it more than Chief.
Nice game for Andrew Ference and Jeremy Reich and Brandon Bochenski. Look for a new story on them in your Cybear newsletter. Oh, you are not a Cybear member? Well, just click here.
Loved the piece on Garden HDX where Robert "The Chief" Parish congratulated John "Chief" Bucyk. Classic.
The sense of relief of having won and having won on a special night was palpable in the Bruins locker room. The team is playing "better" but they looked to be feeling "better".
Here’s hoping that Patrice Bergeron and Glen Murray are feeling "better" sooner, rather than later.
Found the college hockey display on the Garden’s fourth floor -- near the Hub. It’s very cool to have representation for one of the Garden’s staple events.
Take a second to ponder: Did you notice that the B’s have won 4 of 5?
Double take: Did you notice that the Isles are 5-1-4 in their last 10?
This is a HUGE road trip, my friends, so keep it here for the latest.
