Story B: Red Wings go undefeated and score 100 goals in every game. They also beat a team comprised of Godzilla, the ghost of Abraham Lincoln, 2 Power Rangers and Betty White. Oh, and they played in the middle of Iraq on a military base. In the sand. With no ice. Santa gave them special sand-skates that allowed them to play in shorts and t-shirts in 115 degree weather. Jesus, Zeus and Buddha watched from the sidelines and ate cotton candy.

Maybe it was worn as the designated "light" uniform for that game, and therefore the Bruins had to wear the white helmets to contrast with their opponents' dark ones.

For all the bird de lis haters I think the bird de lis isnt supposed to be a pelican and a fleur de lis I think its just a fleur de lis with a pelicans head. Thats what it looks like to me. Also the flair around the tip of the beak is just flair that fleur de lis have sometimes source I am from NOLA.

i think i recall watch that game on NHL on FOX saturdays...

and that's exactly what i remember happening. they tried to wear at is a "light" uniform but there wasn't enough contrast with the opposing team. i want to say it was against the rangers? so the bruins switched to white helmets.

They were part of the first foray into third jerseys by the NHL. From a design standpoint, I think they were okay--certainly not as bad as some of their contemporaries. But they didn't fit well for a traditional team like Boston.

Of that generation of third uniforms, it's the Mighty Ducks' and Kings' thirds that I didn't like. The Pens' were so-so and the Canucks red thirds looked great.

That (above) is their regular combo with a black helmet.

Simple, if they wore these jerseys against a white jersey, they would have to wear a black helmet, if they were to have worn them against a coloured jersey, they would have to wear a white helmet.

Teams (generally) can't wear the same coloured helmet in a game.

I'm sure someone knows the answer to this, but in international hockey, is there a uniforms clash rule that both teams can't wear (dark) colored helmets? It's always weird to me to see the USA in all blue except helmet.

I believe, in international hockey, you're only allowed one helmet colour to go with both sets.

Are you referring to the Kings' "Burger King" and Ducks' "Toon Disney" sweaters? Because if you are, I get a chuckle out of how bad they were.

Get ready to chuckle...

I find that Bruins jersey just ok. The design overall is pretty cool by itself, it's just that the logos made it mediocre, which is sad. Not to mention the "Bruins" wordmark on the shoulders just looks awkward.
