They win it for each other, this band of B-spoked brothers.
They win it for their buddies, Horton and Savard. And some friends who got traded and missed this run.
They win it for their coach, of whom they are clearly very fond and well aware of all the criticism he has endured (mea culpa).
They win it for the organization. They are mostly Canadian kids, and they understand hockey history, and what it means to play for an Original 6 squad. Surely the Canucks’ self-hype as “Canada’s Team” has rubbed them the wrong way.
They win it for a lot of great Bruins who never got to hoist the Stanley Cup.
They win it for long-suffering Bruins fans, who have watched their beloved team fall from being the toast of the town to a virtual afterthought while the Celtics, Patriots and Red Sox have all won championships.
They win it for US, who love and support them.
They are a fine group of young men, playing a very dangerous sport - the GREATEST SPORT - with skill and courage, and are worthy of our support.
