The Boston Bruins Foundation will donate its portion of the 50/50 raffle to Gannon’s family. The K-9 officer was shot and killed Thursday while serving a search warrant.
A similar raffle in Game 1 allowed the Bruins to donate $200,000 to the Humboldt Broncos.
Tickets can be purchased at the game and online through the start of the third period.
Boston leads the first round playoff series 1-0 after a dominating performance in Game 1. Saturday night’s game gets underway at 8 p.m.
