Bruins to honor bombing victims before Sabres game!
BOSTON – There might not be a dry eye in the house by the time the puck drops at TD Garden on Wednesday night.
Pregame tributes are certain to feature a moment of silence and other memorials to the victims of the bombing at the Boston Marathon on Monday. The Boston Bruins' helmets will be adorned with a decal of a blue-and-yellow ribbon with the words "Boston Strong."
But once the pregame rituals are through, it'll be time for the Bruins and Buffalo Sabres (7:30 p.m., NBCSN) to play the first major sporting event in The Hub since those fatal attacks.
This is the time of year when teams typically don't have a problem focusing on the on-ice goal at hand. The Bruins and Sabres have a handful of regular-season games remaining. The Bruins are playing for positioning in the Eastern Conference, and the Sabres are fighting for a spot in the Stanley Cup Playoffs.
