08:26 AM ET 10.12 | The Bruins should have been on the road opening their season in Philadelphia. Instead they were players without a game thanks to the NHL lockout. That didn't stop a group of Bruins players, however, that took it upon themselves to make surprise visits to a pair of PeeWee hockey practices in the Boston area. Johnny Boychuk, Daniel Paille, Gregory Campbell and Brad Marchand used the two hours they should have been playing a game against Philly, and instead filled it by skating for a few hours with the young hockey fans that adore them so much. It was part of a number of rink visits over the last few days organized by the NHL players through the NHLPA, and it was an unmitigated success.

Doesn't matter that the game wasn't played. According to a sabermetric version, the Flyers won 4-3.


Nice thing for the Bruins players to do for the kids. Be nice to see other teams do similar stuff.

Wonder how many kids Marchand speared? You have to know that he at least snowed the goalie!

No, they were PeeWees so obviously a lot tougher looking than Miller.

Not at all...he's a guy that I would gladly take on my team but he needs to play with an edge to be at his best.
