As if there weren't enough parallels to make between the 2011 Boston Bruins and the 2004 Red Sox, here's one more.
On the night the Sox won their first World Series in 86 years, it was done beneath a full moon and lunar eclipse. Well, tonight, as the Bruins are taking on the Vancouver Canucks in Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Final...yup, there will be a full moon and lunar eclipse.
OK, so the eclipse will only be viewable in South America, Europe, Africa, Asia and Australia. Still, the frequency of both a lunar eclipse and a full moon happening simultaneously is only 69.58 times per century. Boston fans have to like those odds.
