The Boston Bruins got a small sense of normalcy Saturday, as fans packed TD Garden for the first time since the COVID-19 pandemic changed the sports landscape.
It featured a number of awesome moments, including everything from the pregame, to Boston’s banner captain, to celebrations following a David Pastrnak first-period goal.
Here are some of the best sights and sounds from the early part of Game 1:
It also was pretty awesome to see AJ Quetta, a Bishop Feehan High School hockey player who was injured earlier this season and supported by the Bruins, as the Game 1 Banner Captain.
And then there were the celebrations, both courtesy of Pastrnak:
The Bruins ultimately beat the Islanders 5-2.
