Let’s Go Bruins!

Boston BruinsGame 1 of the Stanley Cup Finals on Wednesday was a tense match between two great teams (though we admit to being more than a little biased toward one of them, no offense to our guests from Chicago…). After more than 110 minutes, one of the longest games in the history of the Stanley Cup Finals, the Blackhawks finally edged out a victory over our Bruins in triple overtime. While we admit to feeling a little disappointed with the defeat, we’ve got our fingers crossed that the Bruins are going to tie it up in Game 2. As we prepare for tonight’s game, let’s lead a local cheer for our home team! If you’re staying with us in Boston, you can catch the game on the HDTV in your room, or check out one of the several local bars where you’ll almost certainly find the game on at least one screen.

Games 3 and 4 of the Finals will be held at the TD Garden on June 17 and 19, so book your room now so you won’t miss the excitement! Even at our quiet Boston bed and breakfast, you’ll be able to feel the excitement in the air. We’re only a short T ride away from the Garden and our discounted rates mean a trip to Boston for the game won’t break the bank. Give us a call at 617-566-0088 because rooms are booking fast! Let’s Go Bruins!

A Guide to Enjoying the Stanley Cup Finals

Beginning tomorrow night, the Bruins will begin a best-of-seven series against the Chicago Blackhawks at the United Center in Chicago.  On June 17, they’ll head home to Boston’s TD Garden for a Game 3 face-off. Game 4 will be in Boston, and, if the series isn’t over by June 24, the series returns to Boston again—hopefully to be put to bed by the Bruins.

You’ve seen us post these game dates before, and if you follow our blog, you know that we’re excited for this series. Of course, we hope you’ll stay with us at the Beacon Inn to see the Bruins win the Cup (knock on wood), but even if you just plan to spend part of game night in downtown Boston, we’ve got a few tips to stay safe and share in the excitement.

Tip #1 or How to Avoid Hip-Checks: Should the Bruins win, the area around TD Garden will be nuts. The police will set up barricades and circle the jubilant crowds on horseback to contain the outpouring of enthusiasm (some of it quite drunk). If you’re not 6’7” and with a posse—and even then, you should be careful—this is not a place we recommend for celebration. Try the Kinsale or Red Hat, a short walk through Government Center and closer to the quiet residential neighborhood of Beacon Hill.

Tip #2 or We Don’t Throw Octopus: In New Jersey, fans celebrate hockey wins by throwing dead octopuses on the ice. As the bedrock of American civilization, we don’t do that here. But we do enjoy eating salty seafood with a side of salty attitude, and late-spring hockey presents an excellent opportunity to enjoy both. Head over to The Salty Dog in Faneuil Hall for lobstah, steamahs, and othah fried fishes while you watch the game at their outdoor bar. Before it ends, see Tip #1.

Tip #3 or Have a Good Time: No matter what happens, win or lose, remember: Boston is known for being a hard city. If the Bruins lose, don’t cry. Relish the memories of the time you spent cheering alongside an entire city (and plan a trip to the Beacon Inn for this time next year). This city is the closest America gets to the royal stiff upper lip, so if you must indulge disappointment, limit yourself to complaining. On the bright side, complaining is a tradition this city can be proud of. Just ask the British.

Bruins Advance to Stanley Cup Final

bruinsOur beloved Bruins swept the Penguins in last week’s series earning them a spot in the Stanley Cup Finals, their second championship fight in three years.  Here’s hoping they can replicate their 2011 victory against the Canucks when they face the Chicago Blackhawks next week. The tight defense and aggressive offensive line of this season’s Bruins are forces to be reckoned with. But perhaps our greatest asset as a team (and a city) is our incredible strength when we come together. There are some terrific standout players on the Bruins but it is as a cohesive unit that they show their true colors.

While the first two games of the series are on the Blackhawks’ turf, the Bruins return home to the TD Garden for Game 3 and 4 of the series. They’re going to be nail-biters so be sure you don’t miss out on the action. Boston is a die hard sports town and you won’t want to miss the celebrations if we (fingers crossed…) sweep Chicago next Tuesday. Book a room today at our Boston bed and breakfast at for the matches on June 17 or 19 before they’re all sold out! Our rates are always discounted for one of the best hotel deals in town!

Boston Bruins Stand One Game Away from Stanley Cup Final

After defeating the Pittsburgh Penguins in double overtime Wednesday night, tonight’s game may be the last playoff round before the Bruins make their way to the Stanley Cup Final. Despite an admirable performance by the Penguins, the Bruins are poised to make a 4-0 sweep of the series tonight at home. Thousands of Bruins fans (and some Pittsburgh supporters too) will flock to the TD Garden to see if our home team will advance to the Championship for the second time in three years.

If we do advance to the Final tonight, you can be sure there will be plenty of rejoicing in Boston, even as Tropical Storm Andrea brings heavy winds and rain to the area starting this evening. Boston is a sports town and there’s no weather that will keep us from cheering on our team as we head on to face either Chicago or Los Angeles in the championship. Let’s go Bruins!

Of course, if the Bruins lose, there are games tentatively scheduled for Sunday, Tuesday, and Wednesday if needed. If you’re in town for a match, our Boston bed and breakfast hotels are located close to public transportation so the Garden is just a short T ride away.
