Most people in New England are born Boston Red Sox, Celtics, Patriots, and Bruins fans and have a loyalty to their teams. And yes, they consider the teams to be theirs. So when we see our teams giving back to the community, it just makes us love them more.
Members of the Boston Bruins went to Newtown, CT to visit families who were affected by the devastation that took place at Sandy Hook Elementary School on December 14, 2012.
“For us, it was something that we really wanted to do. The fact that we have that opportunity to come here and hopefully put smiles on faces and to show our support,” said Coach Claude Julien.
This day was about the community. The players joined in with the kids playing street hockey and basketball games.
“The kids were having a good time and that was the main goal of coming here today,” said Defenseman Adam McQuaid.
Through the sadness of everything, pure joy was seen on the faces of the families and friends at the event. Whatever the cause, the Bruins are always there for support.
