Boston strong: Bruins’ Stanley Cup finals run aids healing
Question of the Day
“As much as the city itself has been touched by that, so have we as a team,” Julien said. “That’s all we talked about in the dressing room. It really hit us hard. Right now we got to focus on doing our job and trying to stay focused on that so that in the end you hope that you can make that happen.”
Hanging in the Boston dressing room in the corner next to Andrew Ference’s locker is the running singlet with the Bruins logo that former U.S. Army Ranger Lucas Carr was wearing when he ran back up Boylston Street after finishing the race to help the wounded.
Bruins forward Shawn Thornton, who is among the Bruins who developed a friendship with Carr, said he is glad the hockey team has brought the city some happiness. But he said he is not entirely comfortable with the idea that a Stanley Cup championship would somehow diminish the damage done by the attacks.
It’s good “if this takes the people’s minds off, but it’s tough to talk about,” he said. “Just to put that into the same perspective as a hockey game, I think isn’t right, either.”
Which is why the Bruins say they are going to focus on beating the Blackhawks.
“For those couple hours that games are on, we want to make sure we play our best. And we can be inspirational,” forward Brad Marchand said. “We’re where we want to be, and hopefully we can do the rest for the city.
