Tom Brady narrates incredible Boston Bruins hype video
Zdeno Chára, captain of the Boston Bruins, shared a hype video on his social media page that was narrated by none other than Tom Brady.
Just in case you needed another reason to get fired up for the second game of the Stanley Cup Finals tonight (8:00 pm EST on NBC), Boston Bruins captain Zdeno Chára has one for you. The longtime veteran out of Czechoslovakia, who has played for the Bruins since 2006, shared a chills-inducing hype video on his Instagram page ahead of the series opener.
What made the video so exciting, heart-pounding, and overall spectacular?
It was narrated by six-time Super Bowl champion and New England Patriots starting quarterback Tom Brady.
The video itself would have still been fantastic even without the added bonus of having a Boston sports god speaking over it, but Brady’s addition takes it to a whole different stratosphere. There’s even a superimposed image of Brady’s face screaming the classic “Let’s go!” over Chára’s own face at the end.
Cool stuff, indeed.
The clip includes highlights and lowlights of recent Bruin trips to the Stanley Cup Finals, as well as images from the glory-days of seasons long since past. As an “Original Six” franchise in the NHL, the Bruins have had their share of ups-and-downs over the past 95 years.
Like the Patriots, the Bruins have six championships to their name, as they won Stanley Cup titles in 1929, 1939, 1941, 1970, 1972, and 2011. Also like the Patriots, they know what it feels to come so agonizingly close to victory and immortality only to have their season end in defeat when it matters most, such as in 1988, 1990, and 2013.
The six championships is the fourth-most in the NHL, behind only the Montreal Canadiens, the Toronto Maple Leafs, and the Detroit Red Wings (the Chicago Blackhawks also have six championships and are tied with the Bruins).
The Bruins came from behind to defeat the St. Louis Blues by a final score of 4-2 in Game 1 of the Finals, which was played Monday at TD Garden.
