Boston Bruins Hockey
Tuesday, June 5th
Former Boston Bruins defenseman and NHL Hall of Famer Ray Bourque joins D&K to discuss the Stanley Cup finals, how Ray can relate to what Alex Ovechkin is going through.

The Capitals were the forgotten team after not winning it during all those President Trophy years and he knows just how bad Ovechkin wants to win. Bourque elaborates on the importance of how one play can change a game and one game can change a series. Vegas is a great story, their bubble never burst, and it would not be surprising if they ended up making it a series, and it won’t end in Vegas. The Bruins are a lot closer to winning the cup then we thought at the beginning of the season, and they look a year ahead of schedule. Bourque elaborates on his charity engagements and the Bourque Family Foundation and their events.
