|“Slap Shot” night at the Garden Friday||11.20.08 at 11:50 am ET|
Everybody get out your Reggie Dunlop sweaters and Oggie Ogglethorpe wigs…the Bruins have decided to host an “Ode to Slap Shot” night during this Friday night’s game against the Florida Panthers. No word on whether Dickie Dunn will be ghostwriting the game story on Pucks with Haggs. Here’s the press release from the Bruins:
Throughout the Bruins/Panthers game on Friday, November 21, the Boston Bruins will honor what many say to be the greatest hockey movie of all time, Slap Shot.
The first 10,000 fans in attendance on Friday will receive Hanson Brothers style glasses, courtesy of TD Banknorth. A lucky fan will also receive the ultimate Slap Shot prize pack featuring Hanson staples: grape and orange sodas, aluminum foil and a toy car set. The winner will also have their seat upgraded.
Steve Carlson, who played the character of Steve Hanson in Slap Shot, will be introduced during the first intermission and will participate in an on-ice contest with a fan. Following the contest, Carlson will be available to sign autographs through the second period and subsequent intermission in the concourse behind Loge 6 on Level 4. Carlson will be available to the media at 6:00 on press level nine behind section N18.
Fans are also encouraged to wear a Chiefs jersey in honor of the hockey club portrayed in Slap Shot.
