#ASHA18 will be here before you know it and what better way to prepare for it than to highlight some of the amazing spots to visit in Boston? We would like to share with you some of the places we have pointed out to our contest winner Rosella Madrigal from San Francisco University, so that you can too, check them out.
Rosella will be heading to #ASHA18 this year courtesy for Mediscan Staffing Services and our sister company, DirectEd Educational Services as the contest winner during the #ASHA17 Sweepstakes that took place in Los Angeles.
Hockey in Boston... The lingo never ends!
The Bruins have been Boston’s team since 1924. November 1, 1924, on that day, Charles Francis Adams paid the NHL a rumored $15,000 and received in return a piece of paper entitling him to the first United States entry into the league. Adams held a contest to name his NHL club, laying down several ground rules. One was that the basic colors of the team be brown with yellow trim. The name of the team would preferably relate to an untamed animal embodied with size, strength, agility, ferocity and cunning. He received dozens of entries, none of which were to his satisfaction until his secretary came upon the idea of “Bruins.”
On December 1, 1924, the Boston Bruins played their first National Hockey League game, defeating the Montreal Maroons at the Boston Arena by a 2-1 score, with Fred Harris and Carson Cooper scoring the Boston goals. The first facility to host the Bruins was the Boston Arena (today’s Matthews Arena) — the world’s oldest (built 1909–10) indoor ice hockey facility still in use today. The Bruins are members of the Atlantic Division of the Eastern Conference of the National Hockey League (NHL). They have won six Stanley Cup championships, tied for fourth most of all-time with the Blackhawks and tied second-most of any American NHL team also with the Blackhawks (behind the Red Wings, who have 11).
This past season, the L.A. Kings, Anaheim Ducks, San Jose Sharks and the Boston Bruins were all in the playoff run for the Cup. Boston beat the Toronto Maple Leafs in the first round and fell to the Tampa Bay Lightning in the second. By the time you arrive in Boston, a new hockey season will have started in October, and you may get a chance to catch an action-packed game while in town. There is no experience like a hockey game up north and up close!
