Hitting The Links: Southern Comfort Edition

The Bruins take on the Hurricanes in Carolina tonight. Carolina is known for being one of the most successful Southern hockey markets, with a slew of fans who tailgate before games and lots of southern barbecue. If this is a generalization about Canes fans, sorry I'm not sorry. It's what i've heard, ok.

After the jump, no Krejci (noooooooooo), the NHL needs a geography lesson, and NBA fans are starting to see the light...
