The atmosphere around TD Garden Saturday night was nothing short of electric as Bruins fans and Toronto fans buzzed outside the arena before the 7 p.m. game, chanting for their teams and exchanging competitive words before the two teams took the ice.
We challenged Bruins fans to describe their favorite players in just one word. Watch the video above to see their interesting responses.
Here’s a look at some of the players fans described in extra detail.
Brad Marchand: “It doesn’t matter how big the other guy is, he goes and grinds in the corners with him.”
Patrice Bergeron: “No better two-way player, forward, in the league than Patrice Bergeron.”
We even asked what fans thought of Phil Kessel, whom the Bruins traded to Toronto for draft picks that allowed the Bruins to acquire Tyler Seguin and Dougie Hamilton. There were a variety of answers, but the consensus was the same:
“Thank you, Phil Kessel.”
