From Craig Custance at the Sporting News:
Aaron Ward played in Boston when things first started turning around under GM Peter Chiarelli, and he noticed how desperately some hockey fans in the area wanted a winner. There was a group of fans quick to embrace the Bruins again because in that part of the country, hockey is in the veins.
“This town’s been aching for a winner so long when it comes to the Bruins,” Ward told Sporting News.
But now, this group has a chance to expand beyond the diehards. It has a chance to capture the imagination of the entire city.
And Ward thinks, if they do, the Bruins could find a long-term place right next to the Red Sox and Patriots in the hearts of Boston sports fans. This has a chance to be a relationship that isn’t temporary as hockey bonds sometimes are in other U.S. cities.
