Synopsis: A history of the Boston Bruins in pictures, newly revised and updated to cover the spectacular 2010-2011 Stanley Cup-Winning Season!
A pictorial history of the Boston Bruins, Black and Gold is a tribute to one of the NHL's Original Six teams and hockey's most popular franchises. A storied team with a long and rich history spanning almost ninety years, the Bruins have been home to some of the greatest names in the sport, including legends like Ray Bourque, Cam Neely, Terry O'Reilly, Don Cherry, Bobby Orr, and Joe Thornton.
Featuring four decades of pictures from long-time team photographer Steve Babineau, and accompanying text by broadcaster Rob Simpson, Black and Gold documents the six-time Stanley Cup winning team, including magic moments from the past, star players and coaches, Bruins goalies, grinders, and the old Boston Garden.
This epic collection, featuring many never-before-seen photographs, is guaranteed to bring back memories for every Bruins fan who bleeds black and gold.
From the Inside Flap: Black and Gold is a pictorial romp through four decades of one of the NHL's great Original Six franchises -a personal history of the Boston Bruins as seen through the lens of Steve Babineau, team photographer for 38 years.
Over his long career, Babs, as he is known, has captured over one-third of the history of this storied franchise with his work. He has seen many of the greatest in the organization and has photographed them all for the record: Bobby Orr, John Bucyk, Phil Esposito, Terry O'Reilly, Ray Bourque, Cam Neely, Gerry Cheevers, Don Cherry and his Lunchpail Gang, and many more.
In this updated edition, Babs and his photo-grapher son Brian have added their best images from the 2010 Winter Classic on New Year's Day at Fenway Park, and from the Bruins' run to the Stanley Cup title in 2011. This new volume also offers a collection of rare behind-the-scenes event photos and an expansion of the photographer's scrapbook.
With veteran hockey journalist, broadcaster, and author Rob Simpson, Babs shares his memories and best-loved moments with the team: from growing up a Bruins fan, getting interested in photography and coming to work for the Bs, documenting the team and its players through four decades, and adding a championship ring to his jewelry collection.
As well as Babs' perspective on the Bruins -from the stands, the penalty box, the press box, and the arena rafters-Black and Gold features interviews with many former Bruins, coaches, and general managers, peppering the pages with great first-hand stories and anecdotes on what it means to be a Bruin and share in the great tradition of the franchise; and on the hundreds of blueliners, scorers and playmakers, grinders and enforcers, goalies, and coaches that passed through the organization in the four decades that Babs caught on film.
Thirty-eight years and some 1,800 games have gone by since Babineau shot his first game back in the 1973-74 season, and he's still counting. Black and Gold is a fitting testament to that great career, and to those who fill its pages.
This stunning collection of photographs, magical moments, and commentary from the last four decades will be sure to bring back memories for every Bruins fan who bleeds black and gold.
