A handful of members from the Boston Bruins took time out of their bye week to have a little fun.
Attempting to fit in with fellow Bostonians, John Moore, Noel Acciari, Charlie McAvoy, Jake DeBrusk and David Backes, each took a crack at saying a teammate’s name in native Bostonian slang…i.e. Brad Mahhchand.
The playful banter was reminiscent of every kid growing up in the Greater Boston area trying to pretend that they had an accent. Either that or grown men saying ridiculous statements about their favorite sports teams over a Dunkin iced coffee.
Acciari and McAvoy had no problem assimilating into the culture both having attended New England schools. Moore, on the other hand, struggled to grasp the concept.
Backes, however, took the cake with his attempts. The 34-year-old put his own spin on things with his hilarious descriptions of fellow teammates.
"Kevan Millah? Get that guy in the cornah…he'll throw you around and eat you for dinnah."
