BOSTON (WHDH) — The Boston Bruins are asking fans to be loud and proud in the fourth game against the Carolina Hurricanes, and fans said they are up to the task.
The Hurricanes lead the playoff series 2-1, but Sunday’s game in Boston is a chance for the Bruins to level things out. The players said the support of a hometown crowd really made a difference.
“It’s huge. Especially when you get caught out there after a long shift, you can hear them cheering for you because you’ve got a big save or a block or something,” said defense attorney Derek Forbort. “It only gives you one bit of energy to push yourself through.”
Coach Bruce Cassidy said the Hurricanes fans made themselves heard in the last game and now it’s time for the Bruins fans to counterattack.
“They were loud in Carolina. I’m sure they helped their team,” Cassidy said. “We need them loud here.”
Fans said that was not a problem.
“I’ve never been part of a crowd that loves their team so much,” said fan Tara Choe.
“It’s huge… the energy here is infectious,” said fan Greg Bodenair.
“I think this is probably one of the hardest places to play in the playoffs. I think that definitely helps them progress as well,” said fan Connor Thomas. “Hopefully they’ll recover tomorrow.”
