Boston Bruins players, from left, Zdeno Chara, Ryan Donato and Jakob Forsbacka Karlsson, shake hands with students from Perkins School for the Blind after playing goal ball in the gym at the Watertown-based school. Three members of the Boston Bruins took some time away from the ice to join students from Perkins School for the Blind for a game of goal ball on Monday afternoon. NHL players Zdeno Chara, Ryan Donato and Jakob Forsbacka Karlsson donned the black and gold jerseys with the famous spoked “B,” while students came dressed in their blue jerseys with “Perkins” across the front. The Bruins were greeted by the school’s cheerleading team, which got the crowd in the Perkins gym warmed up with a few numbers. Then it was time to strap on the goggles and play some goal ball.
The Boston Bruins will start their quest for the Stanley Cup tonight against Toronto, but this week the Bruins’ mascot Blades paid a visit to a Watertown tire store. To celebrate the Boston Bruins’ road to the Stanley Cup, Sullivan Tire & Auto Service invited the official Bruins mascot, Blades, to their Watertown location for a meet and greet celebration on Tuesday, April 10, according to Sullivan Tires. Blades chatted with employees, waved hello to customers passing through and even went into the service garage to learn some tips from Sullivan Tire technicians. About Sullivan Tire and Auto Service
