I know this was posted on Bruins Nation in 2008, and if its possible to bring it back up, please replace this post. Watching this video gets me to really put those 4 letters in to context, and makes me well up with emotion. Though we won't be playing in the big dance this year, I have faith that our players will learn that they can achieve more than they could have ever imagined with hard work and dedication. I know we'll get through this rough patch, the important thing is keeping this Bruin family together. GO BRUINS!!
