Bruins’ Run to Stanley Cup Final Captivating City Much Like B’s Did in Early 70s

Ken Hodge knows a thing or two about what it's like to be a king of Boston. He was a key member of a couple of Stanley Cup champion Bruins teams, including the last time the franchise won it in 1972.

When he looks at this year's team, and the feeling surrounding the B's current run to the Cup Final, Hodge can't help but reminded of the way things used to be when Boston was a bona fide "Hockeytown" in the early 1970s.

He and his son, Ken David Hodge, who played for the Bruins in the early '90s, spoke with Tom Caron on Red Sox First Pitch on Saturday. See their conversation in the video above.
