Blue Shutters Becomes Hockey Town for a September Weekend
The Stanley Cup Champion Bruins have yet to take the ice for the coming season, but at the Blue Shutters Beachside Inn we already have hockey fever. Our resident Bruins legend, Matt Ravlich, was back again for a week with his wife Geri and her cousin Barbara. But what made the Shutters a real hockey town for the weekend of Sept 16-18: the arrival of the "Here for the Beer" women's hockey team. The girls -- who come from all parts of eastern Massachusetts -- were here for a hockey tournament in Gloucester, and fortunately this overlapped with the Ravlich's stay here. We couldn't resist snapping this photo of Matt with some of the team -- you'll notice Matt holding the Blue Shutters version of the Stanley Cup, which we presented to him earlier this summer. We're looking forward to having all these folks back again for more hockey fever at the Blue Shutters.
