According to several people, including the Bruins’ own game notes and NESN’s broadcast, the Bruins, as a franchise, have scored 19,999 goals.
We’re not so sure, but that’s neither here nor there.
This means that tonight against St. Louis, the Bruins have a chance to score their 20,000th goal as a franchise, making them the second NHL team to reach that mark.
(No one cares about the first team to do it.)
To celebrate, we’re running a contest in conjunction with Ballpark Blueprints, giving you a chance to win a pretty sweet TD Garden blueprint, perfect for your office, man/woman cave, etc.
To win the print, you have to do two things:
1. Pick who you think will score the 20,000th goal in franchise history.
2. Post it either in the comments on this post, on Twitter with the hashtag #GardenBlueprint or on the comments on this post on Chowder Facebook.
That’s it! The winner will be notified, and will receive a free print in the mail. If more than one person gets it right (i.e. if Brad Marchand scores), we’ll pick a name at random.
While you’re waiting, browse Ballpark Blueprints’ website or check them out on Twitter at @BallparkArt for some pretty cool stuff that make great holiday gifts.
As a bonus, the site is offering 16% off all orders between now and Christmas Eve if you use the promo code SBNATION16.
