Before Thursday night's puck drop against the Chicago Blackhawks, the Bruins took time to honor two firefighters who were lost while fighting a nine-alarm blaze in Boston's Back Bay neighborhood on Wednesday afternoon.

Boston Fire Department insignias glowed on the ice as the Boston Fire Honor Guard presented the nation's colors for the National Anthem and a moment of silence.

The Bruins also wore BFD hats during their pre-game skate.
