Hitting the Links: Banner Raising Eve Edition

If you buy something from an SB Nation link, Vox Media may earn a commission. See our ethics statement.

It is October 5th and it's like Christmas Eve. Tomorrow is the night of the banner. Sometimes you can open presents early and the Boston Bruins got that in the form of receiving their rings. And talk about quite the present.

After the jump, a sweet Bruins montage, a ton of signings and chit-chat about the Stanley Cup is pretty much never ending in Boston.
