LIBEREC, Czech Republic — We are just a few minutes away from the puck dropping for the Bruins as they take on Liberec HC in Tipsport Arena in Liberec, Czech Republic. David Krejci continued his man-of-the-hour by getting far and away the biggest applause from the Liberec fans, with teammate Zdeno Chara the only other Bruin to get more than a round of applause.
A couple of notes:
- This place is known for creating a “White Hell” in which fans dress all in white to create an intimidating backdrop. The comical part is that this arena looks just like the Whittemore Center, and, much like UNH’s “White out the Whit” campaign, the participation in “White Hell” just enough substancial enough to make it work.
