Playing the Field: Bruins fans find comfort in porn

Boston's numbers reached its climax around 11:15, around the time Patrick Kane was skating around with the Cup.
Boston’s numbers reached its climax around 11:15, around the time Patrick Kane was skating around with the Cup.

Bruins TV play-by-play announcer Jack Edwards has often said over the years, “Who has more fun than us?” following a particularly thrilling B’s victory. Well, apparently no one has more fun than Bruins fans alone. In the dark. After an agonizing loss, either.

The website Pornhub.com claims that there were plenty of Bostonians suffering from laptop burns on their thighs in the late hours of Monday, June 24 and the early hours of Tuesday, June 25 as traffic on its site sky-rocketed following the Bruins crushing loss to the Blackhawks in Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Final (thanks to Metro Philly sports editor Mike Greger for the, ahh,  tip).

As the chart above shows, Boston (and Chicago’s) numbers were well below the national average during the game, but after the Blackhawks scored two goals in 17 seconds, hundreds – if not thousands – of guys in spoked ‘B’ sweaters went rushing to pull their own goalie.
