The only things fans of the Boston Bruins love more than the Spoked B are family and friends (sometimes that’s even be up for debate). However, when Big Bad Bruins Nation member Adrian Clifford shared her story about her Bruins themed engagement/wedding, the love for her husband and her adopted hockey team (she is from Florida originally and loved college football) were just fit to be tied….no shootout needed here.
See Adrian’s husband Andrew grew up in Everett, MA and had Black & Gold blood running through his veins from an early age.
You may recognize that guy on the left with a young Andrew and if you are a big enough fan you will also recognize the gent in the middle. If you are not a fan at all (not sure why you are reading this), those two men are Bruins legend Bobby Orr and former player/coach Steve Kasper.
Not bad company to keep for a young B’s fan.
Andrew moved to Vegas in 2000 to follow his career in hospitality management. Andrew met Adrian at the MGM Grand where they both worked at registration and struck up a friendship.
They were dating other people and Andrew moved, so they lost touch for over 8 years. As fate would have it, Andrew moved back to Vegas to work at a newly built resort.
He sent Adrian a Facebook friend request and the rest is history……
Bruins forward Milan Lucic did what everyone wants to do to the Pens’ Matt Cooke…kick his cheapshotting ass. The Boston Bruins hate Matt Cooke especially after running Adam McQuaid through the boards earlier in the series and ending Marc Savard’s career in 2010.
Re-born my ass…..
Milan Lucic’s beat down of Cooke looked a lot like Cam Neely’s pummeling of Ulf Samuelsson back in 1993.
If you are old enough, you remember that Ulfie Samuelsson gave Neely a cheap knee to knee hit in the ’91 Wales Conference Finals.
That cheap shot, which Matt Cooke would be proud of , cut Neely’s career short due to the resulting knee and hip issues
The Penguins goons have been doing this for over 20 years. No surprise Bruins fans and the players HATE Pittsburgh like hot fire.
As April turns to May, there are not a whole lot of historical moments to come by for Bruins fans. Some things that have happened during this week, however, include an impressive playoff performance from David Krejci, a playoff hat trick from the Chief, a new all-time leading playoff scorer and a whole lot of playoff games against the Flyers. This is This Week In Boston Bruins History: April 28-May 4.
On April 28, 1947, winger, Grant Erickson, was born in Pierceland, Saskatchewan. He played just six NHL games over two seasons and two of them came with the Bruins in 1968-69. He managed to score one goal in his limited time in Boston.
On April 28, 1969, Ted Donato was born in Boston. He played the first seven and a half seasons of his NHL career with the Bruins before playing for seven different teams in his final five-plus years. He then returned to Boston for his final season in 2003-04. Donato scored 150 goals and added 197 assists in his career.
