The Bruins and Penguins could eventually meet up in the NHL playoffs, but for now the two franchises are teaming up for a good cause on Friday night. The Bruins announced on Thursday that Boston and Pittsburgh will auction off game worn jerseys which feature special “Boston Strong” patches to help support those affected by the Boston Marathon tragedy that occurred on Monday. The Bruins’ uniforms will include a blue and yellow ribbon patch that reads “Boston Strong,” while Pittsburgh will don a “617″ patch on its sweaters. All proceeds of the auctions will go to The One Fund Boston. The Bruins will also sell “Boston Strong” T-shirts in the Bruins Pro-Shop beginning Friday and raffle off other select sweaters. Raffle tickets can be purchased online for $5 each at www.nhlalumniraffles.org. Following Friday night’s game with Pittsburgh, one fan will receive game-worn jerseys from both Jaromir Jagr and Evgeni Malkin. Puck drops at 7 p.m. from the TD Garden on Friday night.
