Alums vs. docs!

While the modern Bruins are returning to action Friday night against the Winnipeg Jets, the old Bruins are preparing for a big game of their own.

The Bruins alumni will play a charity game on Saturday afternoon against the Dana-Farber Rink Rats, a team made up of Dana-Farber doctors, nurses, researchers, and stuff.

The alums have played a few games like this over the years, and it’s always for a great cause: raising funds to support cancer care, research, and more at Dana-Farber.

“We are thrilled to have Bruins alumni join us once again this year to help find cure for cancer,” said David Read, Vice President of Medical Oncology at Dana-Farber in a statement. “Dana-Farber Rink Rats is a fun way to get out on the ice all the while supporting the Dana-Farber mission.”

Alums who will be suiting up for the Bruins include Andrew Raycroft, Mark Mowers, Ken Linseman, Terry O’Reilly, Andrew Alberts and more.

Per a press release, Dana-Farber Rink Rats must raise at least $1,200 to play in the game. With those numbers and the addition of ticket sales, this game will easily raise funds in the five figure range.

The game will be held at Warrior Arena from 2-4 PM on Saturday, Feb 1st.

Tickets are $20 for adults and $10 for kids. You can buy them online or at the door.

Have yourself a nice little Saturday: charity in the afternoon, grab some dinner, then be home in time to watch the Bruins-Wild game at night.
