NEW YORK -- Representatives Michael Capuano (MA-08) and Stephen Lynch (MA-09) celebrated the Boston Bruins participation in the 2011 Stanley Cup Final at the Samuel Adams statue, on Friday, June 3rd.
Congressmen Capuano and Lynch both represent the City of Boston and are founding members of the Congressional Hockey Caucus, a bipartisan group of lawmakers who support youth hockey in America, particularly programs for disadvantaged and disabled youth who might not otherwise be able to afford to play hockey -- including support for the NHL's Hockey is for Everyone™ and NHL Street™ programs and USA Hockey’s youth hockey initiatives.
