BOSTON (AP) — The tattered, kitschy Bruins jacket has been moving around the Boston locker room for the past few months, going to the most valuable player in every victory.
It belonged to Nathan Horton when he went down with a serious concussion two days earlier in the Stanley Cup finals. He showed up in the Bruins’ locker room Wednesday night, delighting his teammates by putting the jacket on Rich Peverley.
That strange, old jacket bought on eBay has become the Bruins’ most valuable trophy.
After two dominant games in Boston, the Bruins are halfway to winning a bigger, shinier prize.
