For the last three years, the Bruins have had some fun with their player of the game award. In 2011, the Boston players handed out an old ’80s Bruins jacket to their player of the game. The jacket was with the B’s throughout their cup run, passed from player to player. Andrew Ference was the one to introduce the awesome idea to hand out some swag, and it didn’t stop in 2011. The Bruins honor Mark Recchi with the crappy (yet awesome) throwback jacket: http://t.co/ZQroVr0v— Andy Gray (@si_vault) October 07, 2011 In 2012, the Bruins carried around a lock and chain to symbolize that there was no weak link on the B’s roster. The chain was worn around the neck of the player of the game, and it was once again Ference’s idea. Kelly wears this year's version of the jacket. 20 players dress, 20 links in the chain...^BISH http://t.co/t2aJRDtM— Boston Bruins (@NHLBruins) April 13, 2012 This year the player of the game gets a camouflage Army Ranger jacket. Ference received the jacket after visiting the Rangers’ training school at Fort Benning, Ga., according to the Boston Herald. The prize was influenced by Lucas Carr, an Army Ranger who has befriended some of the Bruins. Carr crossed the finish line of the Boston Marathon two minutes before the bombs went off and immediately turned around to help the victims. David Krejci looks friggin badass in this "Player Of Game" Army Ranger Jacket and Watertown Police hat #Bruins http://t.co/FFh2SDisu3— Masshole Sports (@MassholeSports) May 02, 2013 So which one is the best?
