VIDEO: Dream Theater drummer a Boston Bruins fan

While playing in Toronto recently on their tour in support of “A Dramatic Turn Of Events,” Dream Theater drummer Mike Mangini hooked up with The Score sports television network to talk a little hockey – this is Canada, after all.

Mangini spoke about his love of hockey and named his favorite team.

The Stanley Cup Champion Boston Bruins,” said Mangini. “I saw Bobby Orr score [that famous Stanley Cup-winning overtime goal against St. Louis] in 1970; I saw that one on TV in black and white, with the TV [signal] all scattered and the family trying to tune it in…cheering and crying. So ya, I’m a fan from back then.”

Among other Bruins highlights, Mike offered Cam Neely finally sticking it to the Canadiens. I’m scarred with the memory of the entire Montreal Canadiens rosters from the 70s; Ken Dryden, the Mahovlich brothers [Frank and Peter]…scarring because they won all the time. I knew that once the Canadiens and the Bruins got finished, that the winner of that [series] would kill the next one just because they helped each other get better.”

There’s more sports talk with Mangini – check out the video.
