WARNING: Gronking may deflate pucks…
The Bruins recently honored the Super Bowl winning Patriots at a game in TD Garden against the New York Islanders (the other New York hockey team). After Rob Ninkovic dropped a ceremonial puck between the Bruins captain (Zdeno
Chara, 6’9 while NOT on skates making him a towering presence on the ice) and the Islanders captain (John Tavares). After the puck drop Gronk picked up the puck and spiked it hard enough that it went off the ice and into the crowd.
This is not the first time the Patriots and Bruins have teamed up recently. The Bruins wore #doyourjob hats during their warm ups before their game against the Los Angeles Kings on the 31st of January.
The Bruins are on a run recently and currently are in the playoff race but could use Gronk to check opponents in to the board.
