It was a highly anticipated day. After a year without hockey, more than 500 fans descended on the TD Banknorth Garden and stood in line to purchase tickets for the 2005-06 Boston Bruins season.
Both Glen Murray and Travis Green were at the Garden on Saturday, greeting Bruins fans and signing autographs for those who turned out to buy Bruins tickets. The Bruins also opened up the ice for the day to anyone who purchased a Bruins ticket for the upcoming season. Once inside, fans of all ages had the opportunity to skate with Patrice Bergeron
, Brad Boyes and Hannu Toivonen.
"It was great to see so many fans excited for the season," said Patrice Bergeron
. "We had fun skating with the people who bought tickets. Bruins fans are great, and today was a good example of that. Everyone was telling us how happy they are that we are back."
"It was fun to be out there on the Garden ice with all those fans," said Hannu Toivonen. "Everyone was just so excited. I am really looking forward to training camp opening on Monday."
