The day after the Cup, 2 p.m.: Recapping Mut & Merloni Bruins talk

Posted By Sam Dykstra On June 16, 2011 @ 2:02 pm In General | No Comments

Nothing else mattered on Thursday. The Bruins were the talk of not only the town but also the Mut & Merloni show. The Stanley Cup’s return back to Boston for the first time since 1972 will do that. Here’s a few highlights of the show from 10-2:

Mike Mutnansky opened the show by saying [1], “Yeah, this feels about right. June 16, beautiful day in Boston, they’re planning a parade and they’re bringing the Cup back to this city.” That was followed by talk between the two hosts about the win means for the team and the city as a whole.

Sen. John Kerry told the guys [2] despite his busy schedule, he caught every second of the game as well as the postgame coverage. He even called Brad Marchand [3]‘s play “inspiring” and said he still laces on the skates and plays a game of puck himself every now and again.

Andy Brickley said that the championship was “a long time coming” [4]and even called Tim Thomas [5]‘s time in ┬ánet during the 2010-11 season “probably the best single-season goaltending performance by any goalie of all-time.”
