BOSTON -- Ray Bourque already has some experience with Fenway Park. The Red Sox invited him to take batting practice with them during his playing days -- close to two decades ago -- and he even hit four pitches over the Green Monster. "I drilled it into the wall many, many times," he said, "but it was fun to get it over the Green Monster. That's something I always wanted to do."
Playing hockey at Fenway Park, though, is a far different story. The sky was blue on Friday and the air was crisp, and only the outfield grass and the 35,000 seats made skating at Fenway Park any different than skating on the pond back at home in Quebec.
"This is how we grew up, how I grew up," he said. "Every day, after school, I'd meet up with my buddies. We had no organized hockey. I didn't skate indoors until I was seven years old, but I started on a team when I was five. The first three years, we played outdoors."
