The YouTube guide to the 2013 Boston Bruins

You will often hear Brad Marchand referred to as a “little ball of hate” this postseason. Hell, President Obama even used the moniker to describe the 5-foot-9 inch, 183-pound center when the B’s were honored at the White House for their Cup victory. The above video is a good example as to why Marchand has earned the nickname.

Patrice Bergeron is noted for his consistent play and he was the offensive hero in the Bruins’ dramatic Game 7 quarterfinal victory over the Maple Leafs this year, tallying three points including the game-winner. He also has the most famous finger on the Bruins roster, as it was bit by Vancouver’s Alex Burrows in Game 1 of the 2011 Stanley Cup Finals.

 

Zdeno Chara is the tallest player in the NHL at 6-foot-9 inches and it was highly comical in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals when 5-foot-11 inch Penguin Sidney Crosby, noted by most hockey fans as the most talented player on earth, tried to start a fight with Chara. Chara basically bent his body halfway down, looking sideways to ask Crosby what the matter was.

Chara is also known for his hard slap shot, once recorded at 108.8 MPH.

 

Defenseman Andrew Ference is known for his eco-friendly ways but isn’t against organizing Stanley Cup flash mobs as he did in September of 2011 in the North End.

 

One player new Bruins fans might not be aware of is Kaspars Daugavins.

While a member of the Binghamton Senators in the NHL, Daugavins gained notoriety for his “role call.” It makes little sense, but it is hilarious nonetheless. Fast forward to 2:59 for the full effect and feel free to chant along:

“My name is Daugavins!”

“They call me Roostah!”

“I like to score!”

“And I like to win”

“B b b b senssssss!!!!”
