National Anthem in Boston - Apr. 17/13 Very powerful: Two days after the bombings at the Boston Marathon, the Boston Bruins hosted the Buffalo Sabres in an NHL game. Rene Rancourt, the Bruins' longtime anthem singer, allowed the fans to carry the tune.

Ray Bourque Gives Jersey to Espo It was one of the classiest incidents in sports history. Here's the background: Phil Esposito had set numerous league and team scoring records during his tenure with the NHL's Boston Bruins from 1967 to 1975. Espo was traded to the New York Rangers in November 1975. In 1979 rookie sensation Ray Bourque was given the #7 jersey by the Bruins. He wore it reluctantly knowing that Phil Esposito was so closely associated with it. On December 3, 1987, the Bruins retired Esposito's #7 jersey but counted on Bourque to continue to wear it. Bourque, however, had other ideas. He figured the retirement ceremony was an ideal time to return #7 wholly to Espo. Only a handful of people knew what Bourque was going to do. In a surprising and touching gesture, Bourque removed his #7 jersey to reveal his new #77 jersey that he wore for the rest of his days in Boston. Esposito was clearly moved by Bourque's selfless gesture.

1972 Stanley Cup Finals - Game 6 Highlights For years it was believed only a few highlights of the 1972 Stanley Cup finals between the Boston Bruins and New York Rangers still existed. (Before 1980, TV networks often erased sports programming in order to reuse the expensive videotapes for other events. After all, the conventional wisdom was that nobody would be interested in seeing old sports events! For example, there is no surviving full videotape of Super Bowl I.) Someone at Madison Square Garden discovered the New York Rangers had filmed the sixth game of the Cup finals for their own purposes. In 2008 MSG network combined an audio tape of Dan Kelly's CBS broadcast (preserved by a Bruins fan) and dubbed it over the silent film the Rangers had made. The happy result is this 12-minute condensed version of the game in which the Bruins defeated the Rangers 3-0 to win their fifth Stanley Cup. Look for the brilliance of Boston's Bobby Orr to be the deciding factor. Note: You may have to crank up the sound to adequately hear the legendary voice of Dan Kelly do the play-by-play.

Boston Bruins vs NY Rangers Fans - 1979 The NHL in the 1970s could often be wild. This was epitomized as the decade neared its end on Sunday, December 23, 1979. On that date the visiting Boston Bruins angrily invaded the stands at Madison Square Garden to administer frontier-style justice on a few New York Rangers fans who had taken some liberties. (It's hard to see the exact cause of the fracas in this video, but this is what happened: A fan, 30-year-old John Kaptain, reached over the glass and belted Boston's Stan Jonathan across the face with a rolled-up program and drew blood. Kaptain then grabbed Jonathan's stick. After that...mayhem ensued!) Among the most enraged Bruins was the normally peaceable Peter McNab. Feisty Terry O'Reilly, not surprisingly, was the most zealous participant. The enduring image, however, is Mike Milbury ripping a shoe from Kaptain's foot and beating him with it! Milbury eventually threw Kaptain's shoe onto the ice. O'Reilly and Milbury would both later coach the Bruins. Kaptain, who attended the game with his brother James and his father Manny, had to make his way home from Madison Square Garden minus one shoe. Some 300 Ranger fans attacked the Bruins' bus outside the arena. Because of this crazy incident, the NHL mandated the height of the protective glass surrounding all teams' ice surfaces be dramatically increased. John Kaptain died in 1999.

Montreal Maroons 1924-1938 For 14 seasons from 1924-25 through 1937-38 there were two National Hockey League teams located in Montreal. Clad in the color for which they were named, the Montreal Maroons were created, supposedly, as the city's anglophone team while the older, established Canadiens represented Montreal's French-speaking populace. The famous Montreal Forum was actually built as the Maroons' home arena--not the Canadiens'. The Maroons lost their first game 2-1 to another expansion team, the Boston Bruins, on December 1, 1924, The very next season, however, the Maroons won the Stanley Cup, defeating the Victoria Cougars three games to one in a best-of-five final. (That was the last year in which non-NHL team were permitted to compete for pro hockey's holy grail.) Despite usually being a competitive team for most of their short existence--they also won the Stanley Cup in 1934-35--the Maroons clearly were the city's second choice in popularity. The Great Depression also hurt the team at the gate. The Maroons finished dead last in NHL attendance three years in a row during the 1930s. After an uncharacteristic last-place finish in 1937-38, the Montreal Maroons ceased operations. Their final game, fittingly, was a 6-3 loss to their intra-city rivals the Montreal Canadiens on March 17, 1938. Eleven Maroon players are enshrined in the Hockey Hall of fame as well as five Maroon coaches. Overall, the Maroons finished with an all-time regular-season record of 271 wins, 260 losses and 91 ties. The team's all-time leading scorer, Nels Stewart, held the NHL record for career goals (324) until 1952. He scored 185 of them as a member of the Maroons.

Cheers - Death of Eddie Lebec Jay Thomas, who appeared as Eddie Lebec in nine episodes of the TV sitcom Cheers, died from cancer on August 24, 2017 at the age of 69. On Cheers, Lebec was a French-Canadian goalie for the Boston Bruins whom Carla (Rhea Perlman) meets while he is riding a hot streak. However, as soon as Eddie and Carla start dating, he slumps badly. (To thwart the jinx, Eddie and Carla continue to date, but they go through a 'breakup' ritual before every game.) The Eddie Lebec character was popular, so the show's writers decided to have Carla and Eddie marry. However, Thomas, who hosted a radio show, got himself into hot water one day when a caller innocently asked him what it was like to be a Cheers cast member. The irrepressible Tomas replied, Its brutal. I have to kiss Rhea Perlman. Perlman happened to be listening to the broadcast--and Thomas never made another appearance on Cheers. The show's writers had to come up with a way to drop Eddie Lebec from the show. In his final episode on Cheers, Eddie's hockey career was over so he had gotten a job in an ice show as a skating penguin. The writers came up with the memorable idea of killing Eddie off in a Zamboni accident in an episode cleverly titled "Death Takes a Holiday on Ice." (The premise is quite ridiculous: Have you ever seen how slowly a Zamboni moves? Its design makes it almost impossible for a Zamboni to run over anyone.) Despite the absurdity of the plot twist, Cheers fans loved it. Eddie's death also led to a further plot development: At Eddie's funeral it was revealed that he was a bigamist whose second wife was strikingly similar to Carla! According to writer Ken Levine, this idea worked well as it made Eddie look like a heel, thus viewers were happy he was no longer part of the show.
