What a Bruins food voucher really gets you

  Bruins-Thrashers was my first live game of the season and as one who's usually stupid enough to buy food at the Garden concessions because I'm always hungry at the game, I was pretty stoked to get some food vouchers from the Bruins. Three food vouchers to use on a limited selection of food items. Damn. I figured it'd be crappy things like a pretzal or a candy bar...
