    Bruins honor Super Bowl champion Patriots

    Tim Rosenthal February 11, 2017

    Just six days ago, the New England Patriots completed a comeback for the ages against the Falcons for their historic fifth Super Bowl win.

    As New England continues to honor Tom Brady, Bill Belichick and company, the Bruins welcomed the champs to TD Garden for their Saturday matinee against the Canucks.

    A handful of Patriots, including Super Bowl unsung hero James White, Nate Solder, Sebastian Vollmer, Matthew Slater and defensive coordinator Matt Patricia donning Bruins jerseys were honored with a pregame montage featuring highlights from their 25-point come from behind victory in Houston to a rousing ovation. The ceremony was completed with White dropping the puck for the ceremonial faceoff with captains Zdeno Chara and Henrik Sedin.

    Unfortunately, Rob Gronkowski was not available to do his trademark spike. No word on whether NFL commissioner Roger Goodell told Gronk to skip the pregame ceremony because of a concern around deflating hockey pucks.

    Nonetheless, a good tribute to a Patriots for a job well done.
