Bruins fans bleed black and gold for Game 7
BOSTON (WHDH) -- The Bruins faithful -- the ones who bleed black and gold -- are hopeful for a Game 7 win against the Washington Capitals.
The win could propel the team to a second-consecutive Stanley Cup -- something that hasn't happened since 1998.
“It’s a tough task. They’ve got the depth, they have the experience. I think they got a great shot at it,” said Cliff Zawasky.
And the path may be clear. The Canucks are out of the playoffs already, after getting to the finals to face the B's in 2011. And the Penguins, picked by some experts to go all the way, are gone too.
“I'm glad to see them out,” said Pat Cusick. “But at the same time I wouldn’t have minded seeing the Bruins get to play the Canucks again. Kind of a little beat them again, such a hated rival…it’s always nice to see other good teams fall out.”
The Bruins expect to earn big time fan support at the Garden when the puck drops at 7:30 p.m.
“They expect something from us, and obviously a good, hard game. And if we give that, then I’m sure they’ll be there with great support like they always are,” said Andrew Ference, Bruins defenseman.
And fans 7News spoke to expect the Bruins will deliver.
“Bruins all the way. Shut out. Three to nothing,” one Bruins fan said.
