Hockey is officially back in Boston as the Bruins host the Tampa Bay Lightning on Thursday at TD Garden for the season opener.
Though it feels like we just recently left the Bruins’ Stanley Cup Final appearance, the new season is an opportunity for the B’s to show the league how they can respond. There are some new names and faces on the roster, but there are also some old standbys ready to defend the team’s honor.
The 2013 campaign started with a bang at the Garden as the players skated out to pyrotechnics during their introductions. To re-live the moment, check out the video above.
