BOSTON -- Bruins president Cam Neely and general manager Peter Chiarelli officially opened the 2013 Bruins regular season with the first day of training camp on Sunday afternoon, and had a simple message for Black and Gold Nation.
First of all Id like to apologize to all our fans, season-ticket holders and premium clients for the lengthy lockout, said Neely. I dont know if any of us expected it would go for this long, but fortunately we can start talking about hockey and hockey games.
Neely went on to announce that the Bruins organization will be offering free concessions to all fans during the five home games in the month of January at TD Garden, 25 percent off team merchandise at the Souvenir Store in North Station, and many other features and gifts
These are things that hopefully our fans can appreciate because Lord knows that we appreciate our fans, said Neely.
For Opening Night against the Rangers at TD Garden on Saturday, fans will have the chance to receive game-worn players jerseys through a Shirts Off Our Backs promotion. Fans will also have the opportunity to win a number of prizes, including the chance to fly with the Bruins on their team charter to an away game and the chance to visit the Bruins locker room postgame.
