Boston Bruins

After the Bruins unveiled their Winter Classic jerseys for the next iteration of the NHL’s annual outdoor game against the Pittsburgh Penguins on January 2nd at Fenway Park, Zolak and Bertrand producer Tom “T-Bone” Morgan took a crack at ranking the Bruins outdoor game jerseys from worst to best!

  • #5 - 2016 Winter Classic vs. Canadiens (Gillette Stadium)

    Maybe it’s because of the result of this game, a patented mid-2010’s “scheduled loss” for the Claude Julien Bruins, but everything about this look was forgettable. Canadiens won the uniform battle in as lopsided fashion as they won this game. Meh.

  • #4 - 2010 Winter Classic vs. Flyers (Fenway Park)

     

    This was the Bruins first attempt at an outdoor throwback jersey, and in my unpopular opinion, they could have done better. A logo that nobody remembers them using and a brown helmet that was too much of an attempt to make it look like faux leather.

     

    However I cannot in good conscience put this jersey in the last spot because it blessed us all with  this look from Claude:

  • #3 - 2019 Winter Classic vs. Blackhawks (Notre Dame Stadium)

    Something about the white jerseys at an outdoor game just hit different. This was a classic game with the Bruins potting two goals in the third period to come back against a fellow Original Six franchise.

  • #2 - 2023 Winter Classic vs. Penguins (Fenway Park)

    Holy “Meth Bear”, Batman! Cannot wait to see what these things look like out on the ice. The yellow gloves might be the best part of this look.

  • #1 - 2021 vs. Flyers (Lake Tahoe)

    The OG reverse retro jersey for the Bruins. Vibrant. Nostalgic. Weird game at a weird time in the world but these babies are unforgettable.
