07:14 AM ET 04.22 | Credit the Panthers for making a very nice impression when they visited Boston to close out the weekend. Not only did the Panthers wear '617' decals on their skates and helmets Sunday, but they wore 'Boston Strong' t-shirts purchased for charity underneath their warmups as well as Boston Police baseball caps. Florida's trainers and equipment staff wore the Red Sox's 'B Strong' patches on the back of their jackets as well as the Boston Strong ribbon patch on the front. Coaches, front office staff and team broadcasters wore blue and yellow ribbons. Backup goalie Scott Clemmensen, a Boston College graduate, wore a different baseball cap during each period representing the Massachusetts State Police, Boston's District 4 and the Boston PD.

Well, to be fair there were probably more B's fans than Panthers fans in attendance.

I would hope since the game was in Beantown...

If they manage to win a playoff game, or even (unthinkably) a SERIES, wouldn't pay much attention to anything I say for a while.

It would definitely change the mood of Hogtown in spring.

So, basically, you are asking us to treat you as we always do? :)

Yep. It's nice to see how a lot of teams in all the leagues are doing what they can to help out.

Wow. A great statement from a good guy. It's hard not to tear up every time you see a picture of that little guy and tough to imagine what the family is going through in light of his murder and the injuries suffered by his sister and mom. Every one in the Boston area deserves our prayers and support.

Boston Strong? Tragic event but that is stupid. It's not like bombs went off and nobody was hurt.

April 22, 2013  10:33 AM ET

What is really tragic, is those who were hurt (and the families) will rely on donations for medical costs and bills when the government should take care of them. Think of the billions wasted on oil company subsidies and aircraft carriers.

I don't know. They might also rely on, you know, their health insurance? Just a thought.

The same governement that had these two on their radar 2+ years ago and did nothing about it? That turned a blind eye to them until it was too late?
That's tragic.
