So, as you’ve probably heard, it looks like hockey’s coming back.
News broke earlier this week that the National Hockey League and the NHL’s Player’s Association reached a deal on a new collective bargaining agreement and a lockout-shortened season could start Jan. 19.
Meanwhile, with the agreement looking imminent, analysts and fans have wasted little time positing about the local squad’s chances to make a run at Lord Stanley’s Cup in this abbreviated season.
Folks who follow and cover the Boston Bruins have cited the team's talent, depth and familiarity as reasons the Black and Gold could be a favorite heading into what some have described as a 48-game sprint to the postseason.
“They’re essentially the same team that they’ve been, and they should be hungrier than last season,” Beers said, referring to the 2011-2012 season when the defending-champion Bruins fell to the Washington Capitals in the first round of the playoffs. “This should be a team that’s confident and hungry going into a short season.”
So, with that in mind -- and in honor of hockey's imminent return -- let's rewind to spent an afternoon at the Lexington Police Department so members of the LPD, Fire Department and Post Office, could pose for pictures with hockey's top prize.
