If you’re a Bruins fan, you’ll inevitably be watching the Stanley Cup champions attempt to defend their title in the first road game of the season against Carolina Hurricanes at 7:30 est tonight. If the game isn’t enough Bruin to fill your day, Versus will be airing a special “Raising the Cup” beginning at 6:30 pm.
Many fans tuned in or attended last Thursday’s game to watch a piece of history. By now you’ve heard all about the banner ceremony and witnessed the magical moments on the ice before 2011 was raised into the Garden rafters. “Raising the Cup” will feature a behind the scenes look at the Bruins banner raising ceremony and the team preparing for an emotional opening night. Boston is and will forever be a hockey town; “Raising the Cup” touches upon the history and players that have lent a stick to making Bruins hockey what it is today.
The special will also feature moments from Stanley’s summer with our champions and player and fan interviews. If that isn’t enough to tune in, both fan favorite Shawn Thornton and Coach Claude Julien spent time being wired throughout practices leading up to opening night and will be featured during the special. Another “Raising the Cup” featured Bruin will be Brad Marchard; a notable rising talent for the Bruins organization.
It took hard work, dedication and passion to win the Stanley Cup last season and “Raising the Cup” at 6:30pm EST tonight will showcase just that. Tune in!
