Hockey bags carry a distinctly disgusting aroma
No, that’s not a typo.

Pee youuuuuuu. That’s the distinctively disgusting smell of the hockey equipment bag.

Unzip it at your own peril. It contains a witch’s brew of bacteria, sweat, mucus, dried blood, metal, foam, and plastic. The scent has been described as a combination of rotten eggs, dirty socks, a wet dog, and low tide.

The hockey bag smell drives hockey moms bonkers.

“I’d say the hockey bag is the smelliest thing in the world,” said Laura Norris as she gazed lovingly at her son Cal, a clean-scrubbed 7-year-old munching on pizza before a Bruins scrimmage game.

Bruins looked in midseason form in opener
The Bruins, fresh from a 268-day respite, opened their 2013 season Saturday night with an impressive 3-1 win over the Rangers in which they played most of the night with a lead, tilted the ice their way about 70 percent of the time, committed precious few errors, and otherwise made the Blueshirts far bluer and blander than most of their recent visits to Causeway Street.

“Give them credit,’’ said Ranger coach John Tortorella, noting play too often was at the Ranger end of the building. “They’re a pretty good hockey club.’’
