Why? Because Zdeno Chara came out for the ceremonial faceoff, and Chara had the hardest slap shot in NHL skills competition history when he unleashed a 108.8 mph blast in 2012.
Perhaps even cooler than the puck drop was Kelly's adorable child giving high-fives to the Bruins as they walked to the ice:
The Red Sox's celebratory Boston tour was a wildly successful one, as each of the teams they visited won. The Bruins did leave it for late on Monday, as Brad Marchand scored a game-winning wrister with 30 seconds left in overtime. That seems fitting with a fireman relief pitcher in the building.
Just sayin’ we’re 3-0 this past week.— Red Sox (@RedSox) November 6, 2018
