Bruins Hope To Silence That Annoying Blue Jackets Cannon

Via In the long storied history of the NHL Columbus Blue Jackets, dating back to 2007, they have been “firing” a cannon to celebrate goals. Most visiting players are aware of the loud blast that’s coming, and with AC/DC’s For Those About To Rock giving the cannon its cue to boom, it’s easy to figure out when they have to brace for the blast. Still, it can catch players off guard. “I remember Claude [Julien] back in the day. He said, ‘Watch out,'” Bruins forward David Pastrnak said of his first experience with the cannon. “But I didn’t know what that meant, and then I heard it.”

“I hope I don’t hear it, obviously,” head coach Bruce Cassidy said following Monday’s practice in Brighton. “After that, to be honest with you, I don’t really notice it. When they score, it’s loud and I’m pissed off. And that’s the routine.”
