The New England Patriots are playing in Sunday’s Super Bowl in between commercials, so the Boston Bruins decided to lend some support from afar. And also get those extra five seconds on local newscasts tonight.

The Bruins wore New England Patriots toques during warm-ups before their game against the Los Angeles Kings on Sunday. They were emblazoned with the slogan “Do Your Job”, which is the most blue-collar thing to hit Boston since that one time Gregory Campbell bussed his own table at Menton.

Malcolm Subban wore it well.

But in case you needed a reason to find the Patriots anymore loathsome:

Perfect.

No word if the Vancouver Canucks will be wearing Seattle Seahawks toques on Sunday, being that everyone in Vancouver has apparently discovered the NFL in the last three years.

As for the Bruins, it was a nice shout-out to their city mates, and a great way to help get them pumped up for the big game. After all, we’d hate to see the Patriots deflated.
