I had the pleasure of meeting Normand Leveille and his wife Denise after they drove down from their home in Montreal to celebrate the Bruins’ Stanley Cup win. See my photos below. For those that don’t remember Normand, in 1982 at the age of 19 years, he suffered a very serious brain aneurism after a game vs Vancouver. He was in a coma for nearly a month and spent a total of almost 2 months in the hospital. His wife Denise said they both cried while watching the Bruins game 7 victory. Normand, according to Denise, superstitiously stood during the last period of the game, not wanting to sit (see bottom photo e-mailed to me by Denise)  Read more in the Boston Herald.

I rode in the rolling rally  for the Stanley Cup champion Boston Bruins today. It was fun! Zdeno Chara actually arrived on his bicycle, sans helmet…oops. Please see stories and more photos in the Herald.

I had the unenviable assignment yesterday of  photographing the all too familiar “clean out yer locker and scram!” day on Causeway Street. The Bruins players were all gentleman as no less than 10 cameras followed their every move, while scribes were asking the two words that all of us wanted answered, that is, what happened? Here are a few photos shot with a Canon EOS Mark 111 camera and a 16-35mm zoom lens. My Herald photo gallery can be seen here.
