In the corner of the Boston Bruins' locker room, hanging from the hooks in Andrew Ference's stall, is a yellow running singlet with the team's "Spoked B" logo on the front.
A win for the Bruins would have been an uplifting end to the city's emotional return to major sports after the Boston Marathon bombing.
On the way to the Stanley Cup last spring, the Boston Bruins made a vintage jacket the award given to the Most Valuable Player on that particular night. Thursday included the debut of a new tradition thanks to Andrew Ference: a chain with 20 links that Chris Kelly proudly wore after scoring the overtime game-winner.
Go ahead and ban the word "repeat" from the Boston Bruins locker room. Coach Claude Julien would rather not hear it pass from his players' lips.
Patrice Bergeron knows opponents will get fired up to beat the Stanley Cup champions. That's what he did when he faced the team that won the title before his Boston Bruins.
Screaming fans dressed in the black and gold of the Boston Bruins smiled, waved and stood on trees and bus shelters as they watched the NHL champions - and the Stanley Cup, of course roll through city streets on a balmy, breezy day.
Screaming fans dressed in the black and gold of the Boston Bruins smiled, waved and stood on trees and bus shelters as they watched the NHL champions _ and the Stanley Cup, of course _ roll through city streets on a balmy, breezy day.
The Bruins were facing elimination in Game 6 of the Stanley Cup finals, and Mark Recchi knew just how to keep his teammates focused.
That third Boston score was a power play goal _ the Bruins' second in 26 chances in the Stanley Cup finals. For those of you new to hockey, that's downright pathetic.

The Vancouver Canucks have pulled goalie Roberto Luongo after he gave up three early goals to the Boston Bruins in Game 6 of the Stanley Cup finals.
You can't blame the Canucks if they're starting to think it just isn't their night.
Robert Luongo and Tim Thomas have drastically different styles with one overriding similarity.
This is a whole different series now.
"It was still positive in the way that we had an event and we had cheering and we had people out and about, having a good time," Boston's Andrew Ference said after Buffalo's 3-2 shootout win Wednesday night. "To get a win, we wanted it so bad. I think you still take the good from the night."
