Claude Giroux on Bruins’ Pre-Game Ceremonies: “A Slap in the Face”

Thought last night's festivities were a bit over the top? So did Claude Giroux.

If you were of the mindset that the Bruins went a little overboard last night in honoring their Stanley Cup victory, then you weren’t alone. Frankly, it was pretty shocking to even see The Cup out there on the ice, let alone to watch it skated around once more.

Thankfully, the boys in the Orange & Black weren’t too happy about it either, especially Claude Giroux.

Plus Bryz’s take.

Ilya Bryzgalov had a unique take on the ceremony as well. “I took my gear off and return to the hotel, took a 20-minute nap and came back again,” Ilya Bryzgalov told reporters jokingly.
