While the Bruins have deployed fan banner captains for years during the Stanley Cup Playoffs, TD Garden unveiled a few more special surprises in Boston’s home barn ahead of Game 1 against the Maple Leafs on Saturday night.

Both before warm-ups and during a special pregame ceremony, the TD Garden ice surface served as a canvas for a laser projection show.

Boston partnered with Quince Imaging to incorporate RGB laser projection mapping technology into their game presentation for the 2024 postseason.

The process involved twelve pure 4k50-RGB laser projectors mounted on the roof trusses of the garden, creating an impressive full-ice projection show. This marks the first use of RGB laser projection technology used in the NHL.

The Bruins may be looking ahead in hopes of another fruitful playoff run. But in keeping with the centennial festivities, Boston also looked to the past as part of their annual fan banner captain tradition during the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

For Game 1, the Bruins welcomed back former goalie and 1988 playoff hero Reggie Lemelin. The Bruins plan to bring back a “playoff hero” who can serve as the fan captain for each of the team’s home games on Causeway Street.
