SOUTH BEND, Ind. - The Bruins arrived to Notre Dame Stadium for Tuesday's Winter Classic against Chicago donning some dapper vintage three-piece suits, scally caps and fedoras, and pocket watches, fully embracing the throwback nature of the event with a nod to the show 'Peaky Blinders', an English crime drama set in the aftermath of World War I.
"We had a Halloween party and a lot of guys dressed up as Peaky Blinders, and kind of by the end of the night we wanted to do that for the Winter Classic," said Patrice Bergeron. "That's how it started and we all loved the idea and ran with it."
Bruins coach Bruce Cassidy, admittedly not much of a hat guy, opted to wear one on the bench, at the last moment borrowing Brandon Carlo's rimmed cap.
"Someone recommended it…Brandon Carlo," said Cassidy. "If you see him walking around with a hat that looks a lot like mine, it's not mine it was his. I took a chance. I'm not usually a fashionista…went with it."
