Bruins Beat: Lost Footage Of Marc Savard’s Comeback Attempt…..Sort Of (VIDEO)

savard_rupam


All Bruins fans remember where they were when the scum known as Matt Cooke for all intents and purposes ended Marc Savard’s career. Savvy made a return for the playoffs where he scored one of the most memorable goals in franchise history.

Unfortunately, this was the last happy memory Bruins fans have of Marc Savard. He only played 25 games the following season after sustaining a hit from former teammate, Matt Hunwick.

All was lost……not quite!

Yes it was a joke, but in our heart of hearts we hope Savvy is happy whatever he does.

Marc Savard

He is a true Bruin & Stanley Cup Champion!

Bruins Hockey Resurrection Party At The Harp Recap

Boston Bruins Die Hards were out in full force Thursday night for the Hockey Resurrection Party at the Harp Boston.

Boston Bruins Die Hards were out in full force Thursday night for the Hockey Resurrection Party at the Harp Boston.

As the much anticipated puck drop for the Bruins’ season opener on Saturday the 17th approaches, many B’s fans gathered at The Harp in Boston Thursday night for the Hockey Resurrection Party. The event was organized by Ring Communications and Boston Sports Then & Now/Big Bad Bruins. 98.5 The Sports Hub and Coors Light were there for giveaways and a silent auction was held with items supplied by Sports World USA.  Among the esteemed guests were legendary TD Garden anthem singer Rene Rancourt, Bruins enforcer Shawn Thornton, and former Bruin and WAAF personality Lyndon Byers.

The Bruins faithful were out in full force tonight as most of the night saw many fans shoulder to shoulder, donned in black and gold, just happy to celebrate the return of their beloved Boston Bruins.

CSNNE‘s A. Sherrod Blakely stopped by the party, and despite admitting to only having gone to one Bruins game, was still impressed by the turnout of the fans. “The Bruins are obviously a big deal in Boston” said Blakely “It’s a great, great atmosphere”. He wasn’t kidding, over 600 fans packed into the Harp Thursday night for the event.

“When I used to cover the ACC in North Carolina, the fans were very rowdy” Blakely continued “Bruins fans remind me of that, they become a part of the game”.

Among the many Bruins die-hards in attendance was a man with a Viking’s helmet and a shield sporting the Bruins’ logo, a gentleman with a fake beard and a Winter Classic jersey with Eddie Shore’s number 2 on the back, and an uncountable amount of Bruins jerseys featuring the numbers of current, former, and retired players.

Those in attendance were treated to an early preview of something they knew all too well. Rene Rancourt sang his rendition of the star spangled banner for the crowd prompting them to sing along. He then said he would be singing the Canadian anthem Saturday in French asking “anyone in here speak French?”. One man in the crowd could and Rancourt gave him the mic. After allowing the fan to sing a few lines Rene took the mic back and said to the crowd “Let’s throw this guy out of here”.

Bruins, Belts & Beers: The Best Damn Viewing Party Period

Better combo than peanut butter and chocolate.

BST&N joined forces with reigning Bruins Blog champ, Days of Y’Orr for a Bruins-Habs Viewing Party at the Place on March 8th.

The boys of DOY always make a grand entrance. And this night was no different. Rob, Greg, Jon, and Justin all entered the Place with championship blog belts draped over their shoulders.

Was this a Bruins game or Wrestlemania?

The crowds soon followed them like blogging pied pipers!

The puck dropped as did Johnny “Devourer of Souls” Boychuk to the ice as he got his ass handed to him. This was a theme for the rest of the game.

 

Boston’s effort versus Montreal might have disappointed, but this gathering of over 50 fans of the Black and Gold did not.  Nothing beats watching a game with people who are passionate about their hockey team.

It’s a kinship.

It’s family. Read more
