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.

Deflate-gate, or Gronk-flate-gate?

While the NFL investigates the New England Patriots for allegedly deflating the footballs they used during the AFC Championship game against the Indianapolis Colts, the team’s players and staff have had some very different reactions:

Tom Brady laughed off the accusation, saying, “I think I’ve heard it all.”

Head coach Bill Belichick, a man full of words, when asked by the media about the investigation by league officials, said, “Any questions on that you should talk to them about.”

Yet there is one player who seems to know what actually happened. Rob Gronkowski, known for his legendary spikes after scoring touchdowns, revealed it in his latest tweet: “WARNING GRONKING MAY CAUSE DEFLATION,” and I believe this is the best theory so far.

Regardless, the Patriots played a great game and in two weeks the NFL season will wrap up and we here at benspn predict that…the coin toss WILL BE heads.

More predictions to come.
