Meet the Author

Rob Simpson is an established hockey reporter, commentator and writer. He has written a number of magazine and newspaper articles about the game on and off the ice, and also penned the 2005 book Between the Lines, about the Hall-of-Fame career of long-time NHL linesman Ray “Scampy” Scapinello. A 25-year veteran of the broadcasting business, Simpson recently spent three years as a Boston Bruins TV program host and rink-side reporter for the New England Sports Network.  He also produced and hosted Hockey Odyssey on the NHL Network. For four years, Simpson produced and hosted Maple Leaf America on Leafs TV in Toronto. His favorite and frequent pastime is travel, which is for fun and business. Presently a Delaware family man off-season, he’s taken a career path less traveled, with previous stops in Alabama, Florida, Australia, Hawaii, and Idaho. 

Photographer Steve Babineau has spent the last 35 years accumulating hundreds of thousands of images of the Boston Bruins, Celtics, and Red Sox, as well as special event and concert photos from the Boston Garden and the TD Banknorth Garden. Hockey being his first love, the former high school player has dedicated himself to capturing the great moments on and off the ice for the Bruins and the NHL in Boston and beyond. H is images have appeared in countless magazines, yearbooks, on hockey cards and promotional items, and on-line. Babs currently runs Sports Action Photography with his son Brain, who began taking photos with dad two decades ago. Babineau resides in Massachusetts during the hockey season, for a little while longer anyway, and in Florida during the off-season, where he and his family enjoy the sunshine and frequenting Disney.

    Perfect for any Bruins Fan...

    I have been a die-hard Bruins fan my entire life and absolutely love this book. There is a lot to appreciate in this history that has been compiled with great thought and consideration. First, the photoraphs are stunning. Detailed, great color, candid shots as well as action shots... so much to enjoy. Steve Babineau has been photographing the Bruins for a long time and I deeply enjoyed seeing his collection of work brought together in this book. The writing by Rob Simpson is also very strong. Those familiar with him from television know how deep his expertise is when it comes to hockey. He is a reporter who truly knows the game and its players. What especially impressed me about his work in this book is how well he blended an accurate and detailed history of the team and players with highly enjoyable and thought provoking commentary on the game itself. There is a great balance here that made it a treat to read. If you are a Bruins fan of many years or one who is new to the Black and Gold, you will not regret this purchase. It will remind those lifelong fans of the great memories the past four decades have given us and it will help new fans understand the tradition of the team. I'd say buy it for yourself, or buy it as a great gift for the friend or family member who loves the Bruins. It makes a superb addition to the collection of any Boston sports fan!
