Every fans in attendance will receiver a team poster, and there will be giveaways throughout the evening.
But the real fun comes after the game.
After the clock hits 00:00 for the regular season, the Bruins players will remain on the ice and throw t-shirts into the stands. Then 27 lucky fans, chosen throughout the game, will receive the “Shirt off their Backs” from a player on the team.
Each of the lucky Bruins fans will receive a sealed envelope containing the name of a player, and will meet them in an on-ice ceremony where they get to take home the game-worn autographed jersey of that player.
Only the Bruins can make a sweaty, freshly-used jersey sound extremely appealing.
