B's fans confident going into home game
BOSTON (WHDH) -- The stage is set, the banners are hanging and fans are hoping the Bruins have all their ducks in a row.
“I’m confident, very confident," said one fan.
“They've got momentum. They're home, there’s gonna be a buzz in the air like nothing else. They’re gonna win tomorrow night, hands down,” said one fan from Texas.
This father-son duo, so confident in a win, they flew in from Texas just to see Game 3 in person.
“My son and I wouldn’t miss the game for the world," said a fan from Texas.
“My dad named me after Bobby Orr, I was born to be a Bruins fan. I think the Bruins are gonna bring it tomorrow, I’m predicting a 3-4 goal win for sure," said a Texas fan.
The Stanley Cup Finals so far, an even match-up of NHL heavyweights. But locals say the homecooking in Boston will help propel the B's to a series lead.
“It feels so good, I’m exhausted but so happy at the same time, because I just expect every game to go to overtime, they're that evenly matched, but I still feel good," said a fan.
It's an especially unique playoff run for fans, who remember there almost wasn't an NHL season. Now their team, just three wins away from winning it all, and a chance to finish here at home.
“I was born to be a Bruins fan, and there's something magical in the air right now, and the Bruins will win tomorrow," said a fan from Texas.
The Bruins host the Blackhawks in Game 3 on Monday night at 8 p.m. The game will be televised on NBC Sports Network. Tune in to 7News at 11 p.m. for highlights and post-game reaction.
