Bruin up a storm

In six days time, we will be hosting one of the most famous ice hockey franchises in the world, the Boston Bruins.

For those of you that do not follow ice hockey, I will fill you in; it just doesn't get much bigger than the Bruins.

They are one of the ‘Original Six' teams that started the National Hockey League (NHL) back in 1924 and the first professional ice hockey franchise in the United States.

Last season, they were semi-finalists in the Stanley Cup Play-offs, considered the hardest championship to win in pro sports. For the last few years the NHL has been sending teams from North America to open the season in Europe against each other to showcase the best teams and top athletes in the game to the rest of the world.
