Best Show on Ice
After missing the playoffs last season—not to mention a tumultuous off-season that saw the hiring of new general manager and former all-star defenseman Don Sweeney—the Boston Bruins certainly can’t wait to finally hit the ice for the 2015–2016 campaign. Four years removed from its first Stanley Cup championship in 39 years, the team has re-tooled with new players including forwards Matt Beleskey and Dorchester, Mass. native Jimmy Hayes, while still showcasing the talents of veterans like captain and all-world defenseman Zdeno Chara and goaltender Tuukka Rask (pictured). Watch the boys in black-and-gold make their home ice debut at TD Garden against the Winnipeg Jets on October 8, as well as the season’s first matchup versus the archrival Montreal Canadiens on October 10.
