The Boston Bruins outdo themselves each time they participate in an outdoor hockey game and they did it again this weekend at Lake Tahoe.
The Bruins showed up to the facility on Sunday afternoon decked out in bright, neon 1990’s gear that included fanny packs, and Patrice Bergeron was even wearing an old school Walkman as he led the B’s players to get ready for the game.

It was a far cry from the “Peaky Blinders” suits that the Bruins wore to the Winter Classic a couple of years ago at Notre Dame, but it was far more fun-loving with some of the jumpsuits that guys like Brad Marchand ended up wearing.
The Bruins kept on enjoying themselves during pregame warm-ups as Jaroslav Halak wore his mullet wig underneath his goalie equipment, and David Pastrnak was drawing comparisons to Randy “Macho Man” Savage with his sunglasses, long hair and beard while getting ready on the outdoor frozen sheet.

It’s certainly great to see the carefree attitude that the Boston Bruins are taking into the outdoor game given some of the delays, and other difficulties, that the NHL has experienced trying to put on two NHL games this weekend at the picturesque Lake Tahoe.
None of this even takes into account the sharp, gold-dominant Revere Retro jerseys that the Boston Bruins are wearing for the game for the first time this season. As great as the Bruins looked in bold, neon 1990’s wear, they are looking ready to play on the ice with the gold jersey and spoked-B look with the iconic “Meth Bear” on the shoulder.

The good thing for the Bruins: They are 1-0 in outdoor hockey games when dressing up on their way to the rink and looking to build on that winning tradition that began a couple of years ago against the Chicago Blackhawks on Notre Dame.
