A Look Back at the '09-'10 Season

New, comments

This season saw a lot of ups and downs for the Black & Gold. From the spectacle of the Winter Classic to the agony of defeat after blowing a 3-game lead, this year's edition of the Boston Bruins gave the fans plenty of memories. I thought it would be fun to take a look back at the year that was...even though most of us would like to forget it.
