The Handshake Line

One of my favorite things about NHL hockey is the handshake line that occurs at the end of a playoff series. The handshakes, the hugs, the pats on the shoulders, and the moments of tender connection between human beings highlight the humanity, the respect, and the love present in an otherwise fierce and competitive sport.

I’m a Boston Bruins fan, but I congratulate the Ottawa Senators on a well-deserved victory!
