2012 Playoffs: The Chain

Last post-season, Andrew Ference purchased a sweet Bruins jacket that was passed from player to player depending on how they performed during the game just played. You could say it was given to the hero of the night after each win.

This year, Ferry went on down to the hardware store and bought a big, bulky chain with a padlock. Ference’s handiwork can be seen on the lock as he engraved the spoked B into it.

“So we kinda sucked at the start of the year and had a whole bunch of meetings,” Ference said.

He went on to explain that the guys said there can’t be a weak link on the team. There are 20 links in the chain and 20 men dress each game. After every win, they put a small notch in the lock.

It’s more symbolic than the jacket. It’s a reminder.

Chris Kelly was seen donning The Chain in a press-conference after the game. He was the hero of Game 1. Which Bruin will get it next?
