From Lynn Zinser at the NYT [reg. required],
The Bruins held Travis Roy Day to help Roy’s foundation raise money to help victims of spinal cord injuries. Roy was paralyzed in his first shift as a freshman at Boston University in 1995. One of his teammates was Rangers center Chris Drury, who has stayed close to Roy. Before the game, Drury met Roy outside the Rangers’ locker room and leaned down to give him a hug and hugged him again when Roy dropped the ceremonial first puck. “Chris is such a great guy,” Roy said. “He’s always been there, supporting me. It’s so fun to watch him succeed.”
