Bruins Participate in Annual Holiday Toy Shopping

Toys are purchased for 600 local children unable to celebrate the holidays at home

by Christopher Weyant @NHLBruins /

BOSTON - Black and gold were the holiday colors on Friday morning as the entire Bruins roster descended on Target in Watertown, Mass., in support of some special young children.

Despite a compact schedule that will have seen the Bruins suit up in four games in six nights come Saturday, the players used their day off to shop for toys for young children staying in some Greater Boston Area hospitals.

The Bruins annual toy shopping event, which was started by Hall of Fame Bruins defenseman, Ray Bourque, has been carried on throughout the years by many of the team's players. The toys are purchased through donations from the Bruins players, coaching staff, and the Boston Bruins Foundation and will be donated to over 600 children unable to celebrate the holidays at home.

Comeback Falls Short for Bruins in Loss to Colorado

Pastrnak's two goals not enough in Boston's 4-2 setback

by Eric Russo @NHLBruins /

BOSTON - It looked like it might happen again.

For the second straight night, the Bruins found themselves staring at a three-goal deficit early in the second period. And for the second straight night they stormed back.

But unlike Wednesday in Washington - when the Bruins forced overtime - their comeback fell short.

David Pastrnak scored two goals in just over a minute midway through the second period, but it wasn't enough for Boston, which fell to the Avalanche, 4-2, on Thursday at TD Garden. It was the Bruins' 11th straight loss to Colorado on home ice.
