The Bruins held a season-ending party in Boston this past weekend to blow off some steam after a long postseason run that brought the team all the way to Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Final.
While most of the team’s players remain signed through next season, Marcus Johansson, Noel Acciari, and Steven Kampfer turn unrestricted free agents on July 1, and the offseason could bring unexpected trades along with it – making this past weekend the last opportunity for this year’s group to enjoy one another’s company.
Atlanta rapper Lil Jon and members of the 2009 Boston University men’s hockey team, which won the national championship that year, were also in attendance at The Grand Boston.
Here are a number of photos and videos from the party:

Sorry for bringing it
