In Game

The Boston Bruins began playing in 1924 and were the first American NHL team, making a trip to Boston a must for hockey fans everywhere. The new TD Garden may not have quite as steeped a history as the original Boston Garden, but that doesn’t mean you won’t find plenty of history on display. The Garden is home to The Sports Museum, which celebrates the history of all Boston sports teams, as well as a statue of Bobby Orr’s famous flying goal meaning you’ll find enough here to interest you if you’re looking for hockey history.

TD Garden is also home to one of the most rabid fanbases south of the Canadian border. The fans here live and die with their team and aren’t afraid to let anyone know who they support. From the time the puck drops until the time the final horn sounds, TD Garden is rocking thanks to the strong fan support of Bruins fans.

If the history and the energetic Boston crowd aren’t enough for you, the food and drink options inside TD Garden are also top notch. The arena is home to several bars including The Hub, The Craft Beer Garden, and the Samuel Adams Brew House. All three offer a unique list of beverages and will ensure that you won’t leave the arena thirsty. The food offerings inside The Garden are also great and offer several local themed stands. Draft Picks is particularly popular, so make sure to stop by and grab a bite to eat from there or any of the other excellent concession stands.

The one drawback to attending a Bruins game is that it can be a bit pricey. However the high price of admission is well worth it for die hard hockey fans out there. You’ll struggle to find a better in game experience than the one at TD Garden, so book your trip today.

    *Instrumental*

  3. Time To Go

    This song was written a rally tune for the Bruins and can be heard during TV timeouts during the third.

    [Chorus:]
    Go! Go! Black and gold!
    Old-time hockey, bar the door
    Clear the track it’s all-out war
    Light the lamp, throw a hit
    Black and gold never quit
    The barn is full, our team’s in town
    So put ’em up boys, knock ’em out (knock ’em down)
    Drop the puck, it’s time to go (time to go)Bust outta work, it’s quarter-past five
    Time to round up the gang
    and take the Red to the Orange line
    Head for the street and the Causeway crowd
    You can feel it in the air, when the team’s in town[Chorus]

    Rancourt’s ready, it’s time to take to the ice
    So tie down the jersey ’cause it could get ugly tonight
    Top corner, five hole, off the post and in
    On a quest for the cup, and we’re ready to win

    [Chorus]

    Go! Go! Black and gold!

    Drop the puck, it’s time to go
