With the Patriots out of the running for this year’s Super Bowl and Celtics star Rajon Rondo suffering from a torn ACL, Boston sports fans are turning their attention to the Bruins, who finally returned to the ice in January following the end of the NHL lockout.
As the 2011 Stanley Cup winners seek their seventh championship, we decided the focus of this month’s digital desktop calendar should be on the team’s illustrious history. The photo, which appeared in The Die-Hard Sports Fan’s Guide to Boston by Christopher Klein, is of the 1931 Boston Bruins, one of the first teams to play in the Boston Garden, which was demolished in 1998 and replaced with what is now the TD Garden.
Remember the past and celebrate the present by downloading this handy calendar—and most importantly, GO BRUINS!
