PUBLIC SKATE: NY Rangers vs Boston Bruins, 3rd Period

"We're goin' down, down, in an earlier round..."- Fall Out Boy singing about the Bruins' PP%

Mmmmmm, whatcha saaaaaaay

Dearly beloved, we are gathered here today to celebrate the life of something we've loved, hated, loved, and hated throughout the years: the Bruins powerplay. This flourished during the previous season, but came to a tragic end on November 5, 2016 against the New York Rangers.

Kevin Hayes, the other PRIDE OF DOAHCHESTAH, delivered the final blow to the already suffering percentage by scoring a shorty relatively early in the period, putting the Rangers up 3-1.

While there was an attempt to revive it with an uneventful powerplay off a Derek Stepan tripping call, the damage had already been done.  Services will be held after the completion of tonight's game.
