SideTracks: Patrice Bergeron, Boyz II Men... and more Olivia Vanni / Inside Track Monday, December 03, 2018 Credit: Courtesy comments WARM WELCOMES: As a countdown to the Winter Classic , the Bruins welcomed season ticket holders — and apparently some surprises — at their recent Winter Warmer . During the event, which took place at the Boston Park Plaza Sunday afternoon, loyal fans were the first to find out a nugget of breaking news about Patrice Bergeron , with Cam Neely announcing to the crowd that the center and his wife, Stephanie , welcomed their third child, a baby boy, that morning.
They kept that joyous momentum going strong, as the team ushered in a couple of crashers from a wedding — specifically, a bride and groom who were getting married at the hotel. The lovebirds, decked out in tux and gown, were able to capture the second highlight of their big day, posing for a photo with Brad Marchand and Zdeno Chara .
ONE SWEET NIGHT: Boyz II Men played a private concert at the Museum of Fine Arts last night, entertaining an intimate audience during a debut event hosted by the Massachusetts General Hospital Cancer Center . The charitable soiree, dubbed CenterStage , gathered about 400 guests to celebrate medical advancements made in cancer treatment and to applaud the people who’ve helped make those strides — all while raising more money so they can keep making progress. Jack Connors Jr. , Philip Schiller and Sam Slater co-chaired yesterday’s benefit, where programming included cocktails in the MFA’s William I. Koch Gallery , a seated dinner in the Ruth and Carl J. Shapiro Family Courtyard and, of course, a serenade from the Grammy -winning R&B group.
