Fans to get behind-the-scenes look at B's
By Joe McDonald
BOSTON -- Get ready for Boston Bruins all-access television.
NESN will air the first of 13 episodes on its new series “Behind the B” on Monday at 8 p.m. ET. Actor, Worcester, Mass., native and Bruins fan Denis Leary will narrate the entire series.
The Bruins will give fans a behind-the-scenes look in the team’s locker room, executive boardroom and players’ homes throughout the entire season.
The first episode, a hour-long premiere, begins with Bruins coach Claude Julien addressing his players after the team’s Game 6 loss to the Chicago Blackhawks in the 2013 Stanley Cup finals. Also, team president Cam Neely, general manager Peter Chiarelli, assistant GM Jim Benning, along with others on the hockey operations staff, will be seen discussing sensitive roster moves in the boardroom.
Neely’s idea was to create something similar to the NHL’s popular series “24/7.” The remaining 12 episodes will be 30 minutes in length.
