Bruins vs. Canadiens Alumni Game preview: Ken Linseman remembers

Generally, Alumni games don't mean all that much. But it's rare to have this many greats together in a place this grandiose. It sort of makes me wonder if they ever have football old-timer games. Probably not, right? Then again....hmmm. Something to ask Pats Pulpit next time I get a chance.

Ken Linseman will be playing his second outdoor game against Montreal. In the last one, featured in the picture, he scored one of two goals en route to a 2-0 win over Montreal. Here's hoping he remembers how to do that!

The last winter classic in Boston featured a "Bruins Legends Classic." Here's a video about that game:
