Boston Bruins Prepare For An Emotional Evening (LINKS)
It is expected to be an emotional evening at the TD Garden as the Boston Bruins play host to the Buffalo Sabres.
The game, which is scheduled for a 7:30 p.m. face-off, will mark the first time the Black and Gold skate on their home ice since Monday’s Boston Marathon bombings. And while we’re still a few minutes away from the contest, we thought we’d provide a few links from around the web about this particular contest.
