BOSTON (CBS) – A day after beating the Montreal Canadiens, members of the Stanley Cup Champion Boston Bruins visited several area hospitals on Tuesday to deliver toys.
WBZ NewsRadio 1030’s Carl Stevens reports from Children’s Hospital:
The Bruins used an estimated total of more than $23,000 to buy the toys.
Players and coaches then delivered them in an annual tradition to several area hospitals, including Boston Medical Center, Children’s Hospital, Tufts Medical Center and Mass. General Hospital.
Gregory Campbell, Nathan Horton, and Milan Lucic were among the Bruins that went from room-to-room at Children’s Hospital with various gifts.
Lucic delivered a pillow case with the Bruins logo to one child:
“When you’re sleeping, you can dream of us,” Lucic told the youngster.
The B’s winger, who was suspended for Monday’s game, was sporting a red nose to help spread some holiday cheer.
“(The nose is) a little uncomfortable, but it’s obviously the spirit of the season, and I’m trying to bring some joy,” said Lucic.
